GRAND AMERICAN RACING HEADS WEST TO CALIFORNIA SPEEDWAY
FONTANA, Calif. (March 14, 2005) --- Justin Marks and Bill Auberlen had a stunning weekend during the Grand American Road Racing Association's first event in the Dominican Republic when they took the pole position and the race win in the Miller Grand-Am Cup 200 on Sunday. The No. 96 Turner Motorsport BMW M3 crossed the finish line 6.448 seconds ahead of Michael McDowell and Rob Finlay.
Scott Maxwell and David Empringham claimed their second podium of the season with a third-place finish. Gunnar Jeannette and James Gue finished fourth followed by Devon Powell and Don Knowles in fifth.
Rolex Series Ready for Southern California
Wayne Taylor and Max Angelelli head to California Speedway, along with the rest of the Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series field, for the Grand American race weekend on April 1-3, 2005. The driving duo piloted their No. 10 SunTrust Racing Pontiac Riley, to its second consecutive win of the season earlier this month with a win at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Angelelli and Taylor travel to California Speedway early next month for the Grand American race weekend with a slim Daytona Prototype point's margin of six points (70-64) over Butch Leitzinger and Elliott Forbes-Robinson.
Andy Lally and Marc Bunting took the GT Class win in the Rolex Sports Car Series last Saturday. Lally, co-driver of the No. 65 Auto Gallery/TRG Porsche GT3 Cup, cruised to a one lap margin of victory over the No. 36 TPC Racing Porsche GT3 Cup of Michael Levitas and Randy Pobst.
