Law Charges Through Laguna Grand-Am Cup Field for Back to Back Podiums
April 30, 2005
Grand-Am Cup standout Darren Law backed up his spectacular drive in Fontana two weekends ago with another fantastic display of racecraft, as he worked his way through a 70 car strong field to finish second in this weekend's Grand Am Cup 200 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Piloting the #6 Zoom Motorsports Porsche 996, Law took over from teammate Mike McCalmont at a driver change on lap 22, and never looked back as he sliced his way through the field.
Law's drive and the podium finish allowed both he and McCalmont to maintain their hold on second place in the driver championship points race, and to close the gap considerably to the points leaders. Law's performance also saw the Zoom entry take the checkered flag as the highest finishing Porsche in the event.
"That really was a good race," remarked Law following the event. "I came out of the pits pretty much at the back of the pack and spent my whole stint working my way back up through traffic. The Porsche is really a momentum car, and even though I was able to close in on the #05 Mustang (race winner David Epringham) he was able to use traffic and he would just be able to pull a gap on me with all that power. I'm happy overall though, and I want to thank Kirk Spencer and Greg Fordahl for giving us a potential podium car every weekend."
The Grand Am Cup series will head next to upstate New York for the Chemung Canal Trust 200 at Watkins Glen June 9 through 11. Log onto grand-am.com for more scheduling information and for more comprehensive results of the Laguna Seca Grand-Am 200.
