9th In Montreal But Still 1st Heading Into Mid-Ohio

8/21/2011

Bill Lester and Jordan Taylor finished ninth in the No. 88 Autohaus Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro in the Montreal 200, retaining a three-point lead entering the season finale. Leh Keen and Andrew Davis finished fifth in the No. 59 Brumos Racing Porsche 911 GT3 Cup to close the gap to 294-291 points. Tremblay and Bomarito now have 289 points, five behind the points leaders.

As a result of today’s performance, Chevrolet unofficially now leads the engine manufacturer standings in DP by two points. And, the Bowtie brand sits just one point out of the top spot in GT.

“It was an awesome day in Montreal." said Jim Lutz, Grand-AM Program Manager, GM Racing. “We had Chevys in first, second and fourth just as they qualified. In GT it is tremendous that the Stevenson GT.R Camaro team was able to score another win. They have had a tough season with a lot of things going wrong, but, they ran a flawless race and were able to battle to maintain the lead on the last lap following the restart and a hard charge from the competition.”

“So going into Mid Ohio, in DP the manufacturers’ championship will be on the line as well as in GT. Plus the GT driver’s and team championship will be determined there as well. Autohaus Motorsports and drivers Bill Lester and Jordan Taylor have a three point lead heading into the season finale. It will be an exciting final weekend for Chevrolet in Grand-Am.”

Other Chevrolet finishers in Rolex GT were: No. 07 Banner Racing Camaro GT.R eighth in class; No. 88 Autohaus Motorsports Camaro GT.R ninth in class and No. 31 Marsh Racing Corvette was 14th in class at the checkered.

The 2011 Rolex Sports Car Series season concludes on September 16-17, 2011 with the EMCO Gears Classic at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio. The weekend will also include the closing round of the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge.
