Top-ten at the Glen for Limoges
Limoges adds legendary track to her growing racing resume

Watkins Glen, NY (8 July 07)- Valerie Limoges and co-driver Travis Walker scored their best result together to date with a tenth-place finish in Saturday's Grand-Am KONI Challenge Supercuts 200 at the Glen in the Blackforest Motorsports USG Sheetrock/Ramset Tools Ford Mustang FR500C.

Limoges qualified seventh for the three-hour enduro, and worked her way up to fifth by the halfway point of the race before turning the Mustang over to Walker, who rejoined deep in the sixty-car field. The hard-fought tenth place finish marks the second-best result of the season for Limoges, who scored ninth at Iowa Speedway co-driving with Guy Cosmo earlier in the year.

"I'm happy to get to the finish today and getting another top ten is always good," said Limoges. "I'm glad we got to race at the Glen because I want to race here again in a Rolex race sometime in the future so this was good experience for that. Travis did a good job today, it was very busy with the restarts and all that traffic we had with the ST guys out there as well. Now we'll go to Barber next and hopefully we can have a better run there than we did last year!"

The next round of KONI Challenge racing is slated for Barber Motorsports Park on the weekend of July 20-22.
