Terry Borcheller and Forest Barber collected their fourth victory of the season when they won the Bully Hill 250 at Watkins Glen International in Watkins Glen, NY. The pair co-drove a Daytona Prototype class Chevrolet Doran.

The track was wet before the start of the race, causing teams to make a decision about whether to start on Goodyear's famed wet weather tire or on Goodyear racing slicks. The winning team chose to start on slicks.

"The Goodyear tires were really good for the inclement conditions," Borcheller

said. "The track was really 'green' and wet in a lot of spots, but the tires did a great job."

Rick Carelli, John Metcalf and David Liniger co-drove their Chevrolet Corvette to

the GTS class victory. The trio bested a star-studded team which finished second in class. Gunnar Jeanette, Winston Cup star Kyle Petty and actor/celebrity/driver Paul Newman co-drove a Porsche GT1 to the runnerup spot in class.

Goodyear supplies the tires for the Daytona Prototype and GTS classes.
