American duo Jon Fogarty and Alex Gurney translated pole position into race victory in Sunday's Porsche 250 at Barber Motorsport Park Daytona Prototype race as Bob Stallings' Gainsco team continued to emerge as one of the talking points of the 2007 Grand-Am season.

Leading 63 of 99 laps around the twisting 2.3-mile Alabama road course, Gurney and pole-winner Fogarty earned their fifth win of the season and their fourth in the past five races aboard their distinctive red #99 Riley-Pontiac.

After Fogarty led away from the start the usual Grand-Am pit stop shuffle saw the lead change hands several times following the first of three caution periods on lap eleven although only Nic Jonsson in the Krohn Racing Riley-Pontiac he shares with Colin Braun managed to lead for any meaningful length of time.

However when Jonsson had to pit under the third and final yellow flag Fogarty's teammate Gurney slipped through into a lead he would maintain over the remaining laps.

Braun and Jonsson rallied back to finish second with SunTrust teammates Wayne Taylor, Memo Gidley and Max Angelelli completing the podium. The Red Bull Brumos Porsche team of Darren Law and David Donohue enjoyed one of their best runs of the year to finish fourth while championship leaders Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas could only manage fifth.
