PIT NOTES FOR SUNDAY, SEPT. 26
ANDY PILGRIM (#12 Bell Motorsports BMW M3 GT3 N-GT) -- We went pretty quick in the warm up session. We went a 29 something and for this car is right there. The track is still very green. All the patches which were really slippery yesterday are still slippery just because there is no rubber down. I am hoping that some of these guys put some rubber down on the patches. I think by the end of the race you may see the track getting better.
BILL ADAM (Porsche 962) -- The whole purpose of being down here is for the new owner of the car. It's a new acquisition for him. It's really to get it set up and get it ready for the HSR event at Daytona. We want to make sure the wheels go around in the right direction. The gears work the way they are supposed to. It's a wonderful old car.
TODD SNYDER (#11 Barber Dodge Pro Series) -- This is my first win here at Miami. I finished third here last year. It looked like it would be repeat of last year, Rossoni won the race last year and being on the pole this year, he was looking good. But, with the wet down in turn one and two kind of made everybody a little cautious. So, he slipped back a little bit. We tucked in for second and went for the pass down in turn eight. From there it was pretty easy sailing.
