Action Express first overall, wins USCR Brickyard Grand Prix
Christian Fittipaldi, Q 4 made a great start, jumped to 2nd and took the lead after some wild contact through turn 1. The team led most of the race, had great pit stops and conserved fuel to the end. The Action Express # 5 now boasts wins at Daytona and Indy and is looking strong to win the USCR championship in its inaugural year.
The Corvette Racing team 4 race winning streak was stopped by Viper. The margin of victory, always close in GTLM was a matter of straight line speed and pit stops. Still leading the points with respectable finish, # 3 Garcia & Magnussen came 4th followed by # 4 Gavin & Milner.
The Friday USCR sports car races on the clockwise IMS road course kicked off Saturday and Sunday NASCAR Nationwide and Sprint Cup races on the oval. The teams now head home with a few extra days to prepare for Road America on Sat Aug 9 followed by VIR, CoTA and Road Atlanta Petite Le Mans.
