two for two

Terry Borcheller and Craig Stanton increased their lead in Grand-Am Cup championship standings with a smooth victory at Homestead-Miami Speedway on March 28. Borcheller, of Gainesville, Ga., and Stanton, of Long Beach, Calif., are two for two this season, with both wins in the No. 44 Porsche 996 prepared by TheRaceSite.com Racing.

Stanton qualified second on the 53-car grid with a time of one minute 28.764 seconds on the 2.3-mile Homestead, Fla., infield road course. He drove the first race stint, taking the lead after 53 minutes of the three-hour race. Borcheller took over during a caution period at the halfway mark. Although he dropped back during the pitstop, he had a strong restart, passing six cars to regain the race lead. He took the checkered flag with a margin of victory of 5.599 seconds.

"We stayed out of trouble, which was the key to our success," Borcheller said. "Everybody else seemed to get themselves into trouble or were in the wrong place at the wrong time; a lot of fast cars had problems. Craig drove a tremendous opening stint and the crew did a really good job with the stops and the prep of the car.

"I had an unbelievable restart: I was third or fourth and there were six cars [including lapped cars] in front of me. I timed it absolutely perfect and got every single one of them before turn one!"

TheRaceSite.com Racing holds the top four positions in unofficial Grand-Am Cup GS driver standings after two races.
