"It's nice to wrap up the team championship," Riggins said, "We had a water pump belt come off early in the race, and it took a couple stops to get the car cooled off. I think we might have had something for the #40 car if they kept running. They were impressive. They really ran well. I would like to give our congratulations to the ICY
team. They deserve a little success."
The Derhaag Motorsports Corvette of Simon Gregg and Kenny Wilden finished third in the GTS class. The #40 machine had held a strong lead in the class until losing its engine late in the race.
The lone SRPII entry, the G&W Motorsports Nissan-Lola of Davy Jones, Robert Prilika and Danny Marshall, finished eighth overall.
"Physically, I haven't been in a race car in ages but, mentally, I'm racing every day," veteran Jones admitted, "It was good to be back out there. The track got greasy, and there wasn't as much grip, especially when we got light on fuel. You have to wait to get a set when you went going left to right. Once we topped it off with fuel, it settled down.
"I was mentally set to run to the finish, but the team decided to put Danny Marshall in. It's just a matter of seat time for me. I haven't felt this way in a long time. You can test and develop cars, but it's not like actually going out racing. I'm there. I'm ready to go fast. I'd like to be in a Daytona Prototype next year."
