Victory came after a prolonged, head-to-head battle with the TRG and Brumos Porsche teams.

On Friday, another local team, Miller Racing, finished 18th in the BMW Performance 200. It was the opening event in the Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge series.

Miller Racing, with team owner Roger Miller and co-driver Ian James, was running fifth in the two-hour race before James was hit in the rear bumper, dropping the team back in the 80-car field.
