Spirit of Daytona Aim For Top Step At Lime Rock Park

1 Mins read

Spirit of Daytona Racing will be hoping to go one better that its 2012 Lime Rock Park result as the Grand-Am Rolex Series draws to a close.

Richard Westbrook and Antonio Garcia took pole and finished in second place in 2012, while Westbrook’s 2013 team-mate, Ricky Taylor, took victory for SunTrust Racing. The victory was the third in a row for Taylor, who has a 100% win record at the 1.5-mile Connecticut circuit.

It has been a year to forget for Spirit of Daytona Racing, suffering terrible race luck and not scoring a podium result since the third race of the year at Barber Motorsports Park.

“I think we saw a glimmer of what this group is capable of with the pole position at Laguna, but unfortunately that didn’t turn into something more for us last time out,” said team owner Troy Flis. “We’ve been fortunate to compete in the Rolex Series and in GRAND-AM for a long time, so it is a little sad to see that era closing but then again we are all very excited about what is about to happen with our sport, so hopefully we can head into the future with a head of steam with a good finish on Saturday.”

The race at Lime Rock Park will be the last for the current era of American Sportscar racing, with Grand-Am merging with the American Le Mans Series in 2014 to form the all-new United SportsCar Racing series.
