quick start

Krohn Racing/TRG set the fifth-fastest Daytona Prototype time during testing for the six-hour Rolex Sports Car Series race set for Saturday on le Circuit Mont-Tremblant. Nic Jonsson turned the team's fast lap in the No. 67 Pontiac-powered Riley Mk XI he drives with Tracy Krohn. His lap time was one minute 31.463 seconds on the 2.65-mile road course. Jonsson's and Tracy's teammates Jorg Bergmeister and Christian Fittipaldi were close behind in the No. 66 Pontiac-Riley (1:32.294).

leader

Tracy Krohn leads the Jim Trueman Award standings for sportsman drivers in the Rolex Series Daytona Prototype class. Bolstered by two top-five finishes, he has a six-point edge (855 to 849) after four of 14 races this season.

"I wasn't aware of that, but I'm happy that I'm leading it," he said. "Hopefully, we'll have a better lead after this race. We had a little bad luck last race, but we had a good day today. We still have some work to do on setup, but the car was good."

southern championship

Christian Fittipaldi is chasing a stock-car racing championship in his native Brazil. He reported mixed results from the first two races of the season.

"The first race, we weren't as competitive as the other people. We started 29th out of 40 and finished 18th. We had a coming-together with a couple of cars during the race. Even if we'd had a perfect race, I would have only finished 12th or 13th. The second race, we were very competitive the whole weekend, qualified third and ran second for the whole race. Two laps from the end, the transmission broke and I finished 10th. So, on to the next one!"
