Darren Law - VIR podium

Darren Law of Phoenix earned his second-consecutive Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series podium finish on Saturday, finishing third in the series race at Virginia International Raceway in Alton, Va. Victory in the Rolex 24 At Daytona in January and the Virginia podium gave Law and his co-driver, David Donohue of Malvern, Pa., a one-point lead in series championship standings after the first two races of the season.

Law qualified the No. 58 Brumos Racing Porsche-powered Daytona Prototype fifth on the 34-car grid. He moved up to second during his stint, then handed off to Donohue, who returned to the track 10th in class. He regained positions as other competitors pitted, then steadily worked through the field to finish third.

"I'm very, very happy with the outcome of this race," Law said. "The win at Daytona and the podium here puts us in the points lead, which is what we're aiming to do for the season. It was rough out there; it was very hot and there was a lot of traffic. But I think we were competitive with everybody except maybe [car No.] 01. The pitstops were correct and the car was quick enough that I felt like I could run with anybody. I brought it in in second place, the team did a great job and David fought his way to the front."
