Law, Donohue, and Brumos Porsche Come Home 5th for Rolex Paul Revere 250 at Daytona

RACE ACTION

After qualifying off pole and running near the front all evening, Darren Law and David Donohue brought the #58 Red Bull Brumos Porsche Fabcar Daytona Prototype to the checkered flag a season high 5th position for the Rolex Grand American Paul Revere 250 at Daytona International Speedway. After running in third for much of his stint, Law fell victim to the famous Daytona draft, and was passed on the banking by the #20 Citgo Crawford of Andy Wallace and the #4 Boss Motorsports Crawford of Butch Leitzinger.

"We had a great run going," remarked Law following the race. "I had a great dice with Andy Wallace, and was doing everything I could to keep him back there. On the final lap coming out of NASCAR turn 4 Andy and I were side by side, and I couldn't do anything as I watched both he and the #4 car pull past me to the checkered flag. It was a good race for sure, but I got caught out by the draft."

Darren was encouraged at the Brumos Porsche's speed, as the car was qualified a season high second.

"David really did a great job in qualifying," said Law. "I think he turned about as good a lap as we could get out of the car, and it shows that little by little we are starting to run closer and closer to the front. The rest of this season should be interesting."

PRERACE ACTVITIES

The morning before the race, Law, Donohue and several other Rolex series drivers visited camp Boggy Creek. The year round camp located in southern Florida was established for children ranging in ages 7-16 who have been afflicted with chronic or life threatening illnesses.

Law spent the day viewing the facility and even took time to serve lunch to some of the kids.

"It's good to be in a position that allows us to do things like this," said Law who has two young girls of his own. "My heart goes out to some of these kids."

Law, Donohue, and the entire Red Bull Brumos Porsche squad have a one month break from Grand American race action before they head to Mid-Ohio for the EMCO Gears Mid-Ohio Road Race Classic the weekend of August 6-7.
