The Krohn Racing/TRG cars saw more action than the team wanted in the Rolex Sports Car Series race at California Speedway. Jorg Bergmeister led the first part of the race, but a hard hit to the No. 66 Pontiac-powered Riley Mk XI left him and his co-driver, Christian Fittipaldi, struggling for a top-10 finish. Their teammates Nic Jonsson and Tracy Krohn were also hurt by contact with other cars, but were able to finish fifth in the No. 67 Pontiac-Riley.

Jorg Bergmeister, No. 66:

"We had a really, really good car in the beginning with stickers [new tires] on the car; we were the fastest by quite a bit. I had to slow down because there was a car ahead of me braking really hard. Then someone hit me and crashed hard into the rear. Something on the suspension broke and we also had tire damage. I'm very disappointed."

Christian Fittipaldi, No. 66:

"The team did an awesome job. Everyone worked really well, on top of the game, especially considering that this team only has three races with this type of car. Unfortunately, Jorg was punted out and had a flat tire and we went a lap down. I got the lap back, but there was no time left for us to go a little more forward. But we definitely had a winning car today."

Nic Jonsson, No. 67:

"It was pretty eventful. As soon as I got in the car, I got hit by a BMW GT car and it turned me around. That put me all the way back to the end of the pack, so I started charging from there. I got hit again, by one of the Porsches. It broke the rear spoiler and the brakes started getting a little worse. I had to just settle in and make sure we made it to the end."

Tracy Krohn, No. 67:

"The car was extremely good. Nic had a little bad luck in getting involved with some other traffic and that messed up the spoiler. Otherwise, I think we would have been very close to a podium. I was able to keep up with traffic today and the car was very solid through all the high-speed turns, though we need some work on the lower-speed stuff. It was a good day."
