SAMAX Notches 1st win at Laguna Seca.....

Post by mlittle » Mon May 19, 2008 12:57 pm

Saturday's U.S. Sports Car Invitational at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca saw plenty of door-banging, close-qtr. racing that has the standard of Grand-Am competition to date...........in the Daytona Prototype class, SAMAX Motorsports' duo of Ryan Dalziel and Henri Zogaib held off a late charge from the Riley-Matthews' pair of Jim Matthews and Marc Goosens that saw both DPs' bang wheels, tires and practically everything else the last 15 or so minutes of the race(twice going off-course through the Corkscrew........ :shock: :shock: ).....here are the top-5 from the Daytona Prototypes'........

DP-1} #2 SAMAX Pontiac/Riley(Dalziel, Zogaib)
DP-2} #91 Lowe's Pontiac/Riley(Matthews, Goosens)
DP-3} #01 Telmex Lexus/Riley(Pruett, Rojas)
DP-4} #99 Gainsco Pontiac/Riley(Fogarty, Gurney)
DP-5} #58 RedBull/Brumos Porsche/Riley(Donohue, Law)


Meanwhile, over in the Grand Touring(GT) class.......while it wasn't there wasn't as much door-banging as in the DP class, there was plenty of late-race action as the #07 Banner Racing entry of Paul Edwards and Kelly Collins took advantage of a late-race miscue by the SpeedSource Mazda of Nick Ham and Sylvain Tremblay to win in GT......here are the top-5 from the GT class................

GT-1} #07 Banner Engineering Pontiac GXP-R(Edwards, Collins)
GT-2} #67 The Racer's Group Porsche 911 GT3(George, Jr./Pumpelly)
GT-3} #70 SpeedSource Mazda RX-8(Tremblay, Ham)
GT-4} #21 MCM Pontiac GTO-R(Alessi, Phinny)
GT-5} #86 Farnbacher Loles Porsche 911 GT3(Keen, Lux)
