“I was glad to see the #65 guys win the race,” Edwards added, “For us, it was a great TRG result. We're looking forward to going to the next race.”
Pumpelly and co-driver Randy Pobst wound up third in the #36 Porsche, followed by Ian James and Chris Gleason in the #22 BMW Financial Services M3 for BMW Team PTG. Kelly Collins and RJ Valentine made it two PTG machines inside the top five with a fifth-place outing in the #17 M3.
Aside from Bunting and Lally, it was a tough day for the frontrunners in the GT driver standings. PTG's Joey Hand slipped from sole possession of second place in the standings to a tie for fourth with David Murry, following a 13th-place class result. Hand joined the race several laps down after co-driver Justin Marks crashed in turn eleven on lap four.
Stanton, meanwhile, started tenth in class in the #80 Synergy Racing Porsche and remained in position to score solid points before handing the car over to co-driver Murry on lap 28. Murry then found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, as he was involved in the five-car accident on lap 44. However, Murry was able to limp the car back to its pit, and returned to the track for a twelfth place class finish that kept Stanton atop the points table.
