Terry Borcheller enjoyed a strong race weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead, Fla. The Phoenix driver posted the fastest GSII class times in three of the four practice sessions for the April 13 Grand-Am Cup race on the 2.4-mile road course. His co-driver, Forest Barber of Fort Worth, Tex., started the No. 54 Bell Motorsports BMW M3 sixth on the GSII grid. The pair were unlucky on their pitstop timing, but finished the race fourth in class.
"Forest did a great job qualifying. He kept the gap to the other cars really close," Borcheller said. "I think he's shown the most improvement with this race.
"We were quickest all weekend, then something happened with the car. We don't know what it was - we just didn't have as much power for the race. We did our driver change from Forest to me, then we got a caution flag a couple of laps later. So all the other cars pitted under the yellow and four cars gained a lap on us. But we still finished fourth, and points-wise we're okay because the [championship] points are really close."
Terry Borcheller's next races will be at Phoenix International Raceway on May 3. He and Forest Barber will drive the No. 54 Bell Motorsports BMW M3 in the Grand-Am Cup Grand Sport race, take a quick break, then switch to the No. 54 Doran JE4 for the Rolex Sports Car Series race.
