The practice would pay off in a hotly contested qualifying session that saw the top fifteen cars blanketed by only 1.5 seconds.

Just as fitting of a tribute, if not nearly as intentional, Brad Vincent earned his second straight Wil-Trans Pole Position award for his qualifying lap time of 1:47.911.

Outside of a few spins and some injured trackside cones, there were few notable incidents until 21 minutes into the 30-minutes session. Exiting the pits, Troy Harder seemed to have a little miscommunication with a hard charging Andrew Feldman, and the two collided quite heavily.

July 28th, 2013 by

A smaller field usually translates into more room for racers towards the back of the pack, but for racers Scott Husted and Kevin Kyle, things got a little too close for comfort near the end of lap one. With the pack screaming into the final hairpin turn, 10th-placed Kyle got into the dirt, causing his … Read the Rest »

July 21st, 2013 by

Outside of Vincent’s timing issues, there was very little drama to be had during the grid-setting session. Much of the field played nicely over the 13-turn, 2.6 mile course, with teammates and non-teammates alike drafting one another in the high speed sections, trying to gain that last bit of speed.

Red Sox Panoz 30 at Road Atlanta
