Ford, Nissan win Continental Tire SCC season opener at Daytona

Billy Johnson and Jack Roush Jr. take the GS class win in a Roush Performance Ford Mustang. Skullcandy Team Nissan’s drivers Lara Tallman and Vesko Kozarov take the win in the ST class.

Billy Johnson and Jack Roush Jr. won Friday’s BMW Performance 200 Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race at Daytona International Speedway in a Roush Performance Ford Mustang Boss 302R. It was their second consecutive win at Daytona, the season-opening event of the season, and the first since Roush broke his wrist last year at Laguna Seca.

“We are out here trying very hard to win,” said Roush, son of legendary NASCAR owner Jack Roush. “Bringing home a win really means a lot. It’s what we shoot for.”

The Rum Bum Porsche shared by Matt Plumb and Nick Longhi finished second, followed by a pair of Multimatic Motorsports Aston Martin Vantages.

Eric Curran and Lawson Aschenbach rounded out the top-five in the CKS Autosport Camaro GS.R.

Skullcandy Team Nissan’s Altima won for the first time in the Street Tuner class, with Lara Tallman and Vesko Kozarov sharing the victory.

“I couldn’t be happier,” said Tallman, the first female winner in the series since July 23, 2011. “This is the best way to start the season.”

Gregory Liefooghe and Tyler Cooke came home second in a Bimmerworld BMW 328i, followed by the Compass 360 Racing Honda Civic Si driven by Kyle Gimple and Ryan Eversley.
