Victory slips from Turner's grasp.
Frank Selldorff earns the B&M Holeshot Award.
Trois Rivieres, Quebec - August 4, 2002 - "My #92 Turner Motorsport / H&R Springs BMW 325i was handling great," said Will Turner. "I found an opening at the start of the race and was able to sneak into second. Then the #1 Acura had an incident and I was in the lead. I wasn't getting any pressure from the rear and the car would pretty much go anywhere on the track. "
"During the yellow, I started experiencing some inconsistency in the driveline." Will continued. "I'm still not sure what was wrong. When the green came back out the problem worsened and I started to fall back. It's too bad, I think we had a great car."
Eric Curran in the #91 Turner Motorsport / H&R Springs BMW 325i turned in an outstanding effort. At one point in the race, he and Bobby Sak [#93 Turner Motorsport / H&R Springs BMW 325i] were running tandem in 9th and 10th and really on the move. Eric came all the way from an 18th starting spot to finish 6th in the race.
Frank Selldorff earned the B&M Holeshot Award for moving up five positions in the first two laps, after tying with two other drivers for passing three cars on the first lap.
The race was slowed by one caution for six laps after an incident between Bobby Sak and Pat Kane's #0 Acura on the front straight. Sak was attempting to lap the slower #0 car for the second time on lap 15. Neither driver was injured.
