Boris Said and Anders Hainer drove their No. 13 Unitech Racing Nissan 350Z to victory Saturday in the ¡El Combate de Velocidad! Grand-Am Cup Series race at Miami Homestead Speedway.

"Everything went perfect today," explained Said, who celebrated his 42nd birthday today. "Nobody made any mistakes. And the team had great pit stops. We pitted at the right and stayed on the road. It was difficult conditions when it started raining little bit. It was a blast when the banking was wet; it separated the men from the boys there for a few laps. It's difficult because you don't know when the track is wet or when it's dry. After running the (Nextel) Cup race last weekend at Fontana going into the turns at 26, this didn't seem like anything."

"It was my first time in the car, so it took me some time to get used to," Hainer said. "But driving with Boris was a lot of fun. He's amazing. He did such a great job."

The No. 88 Fiorano Racing Porsche of Frank Rossi, Barry Ellis, and Fraser Wellon finished second, 8.439 seconds behind the winning Nissan. Jep Thornton, David Russell, and Eric VanCleef in the No. 09 Automatic Racing BMW M3 crossed the finish line third.

In the Super Touring Class, the SpeedSource Mazda RX-8 of David Haskell and Sylvain Tremblay won for the third time this season. "It was really hot, but everything went pretty well. It was just a great day for everybody."

Eric Curran and Bob Endicott, driving the No. 27 Bill Fenton Motorsports Acura RSX-S, came home second, and Will Turner and Don Salama in the No. 95 Turner Motorsport BMW 330i finished third.
