Despite Anxious Late Moments, Snow and Sellers Take Victory in Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America Season Opener


By Mark Robinson IMSA Wire Service

ELKHART LAKE, Wis. – Madison Snow and Bryan Sellers, a pair of road-racing veterans whose resume includes a win this year in the Rolex 24 At Daytona, showed their skill throughout Friday in capturing the much-awaited, season-opening race of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America campaign.

Snow put the No. 16 Change Racing, Lamborghini Charlotte Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO on pole in qualifying earlier Friday, and the co-drivers kept it at the point other than through the mandatory pit stop cycle. Sellers took the wheel for the second half of the 50-minute sprint and reached the checkered first overall and in the Pro class despite battling electrical gremlins.

Pure Passion is Driving Force for LMP2 Racer Patrick Kelly


By Holly Cain IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – In some ways Patrick Kelly’s full-speed, full-sensory IMSA racing career is a lot like the wildly popular video games such as “Call of Duty” that he creates in his 9-to-5 existence back home in California. He has been a force of can-do.

The 52-year old Minnesota-native has overcome great trial and tribulation – from surviving massive injuries in a street car accident with a distracted school bus driver, nearly a decade ago, to being by his wife’s side as she valiantly battled pancreatic cancer before passing away this March. Even one of those two life-changing events would be enough to dampen the spirit of most, but Kelly is proving what indomitable willpower and dedication to his racing craft can yield.

Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America Charges Toward 2020 Season Opener at Road America

Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America Charges Toward 2020 Season Opener at Road America


By Mark Robinson IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – It took four months longer than planned due to the global pandemic, but the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America series is finally ready to wave the green flag on its season. And the field of drivers and teams that will take to Road America this weekend is ripe with talent and promise.

Twelve cars are entered, with four entries in each of the three classes – Pro, ProAm and LB Cup. The schedule calls for a pair of races to be contested on the historic road course in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, at 5:15 p.m. ET Friday and 10:15 a.m. Saturday. Both races will stream live on IMSA.tv.

Among the returning stars to the series in 2020 are three reigning Lamborghini Super Trofeo champions and two runners-up, not to mention a pair of past champions in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

Corey Lewis shared last year’s Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America drivers’ championship in the Pro class and returns this season in ProAm behind the wheel of the No. 29 Change Racing, (Lamborghini Charlotte) Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO. Lewis – who opened 2020 with a Rolex 24 At Daytona victory in the GTD class – will carry in the momentum of winning a race this past weekend at Road America in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge.

Jacob Eidson returns to defend his title in the ProAm class when he won 11 of 12 races, this year teaming with 17-year-old sensation Steven Aghakhani in the No. 6 US RaceTronics, Lamborghini Beverly Hills entry.

“Our most straightforward goal at Road America is to keep the car clean all weekend, bring it home with a podium finish and just have fun,” Aghakhani said. “That’s the biggest thing. We have waited a long time for this season to start, and I think Super Trofeo is getting back to racing later than any major series in the U.S. The wait has been so long, but we have to remember to enjoy it now that it is finally here.”

McKay Snow edged Aghakhani by a single point in the 2019 Am standings. Snow is back in ProAm, driving the No. 63 Change Racing, Lamborghini Charlotte machine. Snow’s older brother Madison will compete in the Pro class and team with Bryan Sellers in the No. 16 Change Racing, Lamborghini Charlotte Lamborghini. Sellers and Madison Snow shared the 2018 WeatherTech Championship crown in GT Daytona competition, and were Lewis’ 2020 Rolex 24-winning co-drivers.

Then there’s Stevan McAleer, the reigning IMSA Prototype Challenge runner-up, who’ll pair with British standout Stuart Middleton in the No. 1 Prestige Performance WTR, Lamborghini Paramus in the Pro class. The “WTR” stands for Wayne Taylor Racing, which has totaled seven Lamborghini Super Trofeo championships.

Ashton Harrison impressed many with her runner-up finish last year in the LB Cup standings. She moves into ProAm this season, where she will team with Andrea Amici in the No. 25 Prestige Performance WTR, Lamborghini Paramus Huracán.

“Andrea and I are looking forward to starting the season off at Road America and being back with Wayne Taylor Racing for another season,” Harrison said.

“I’m also excited to be starting off at a challenging track like Road America where both Andrea and I had great success last year. Our goal is to win ProAm races as often as possible and take the ProAm championship. My personal goal Is to become one of the first female Lamborghini champions in the United States."

The Road America calls for practice sessions at 4:55 p.m. ET Thursday and 9 a.m. Friday, ahead of a pair of qualifying sessions at 1:35 and 1:55 p.m. Saturday. The Road America round is the first of five doubleheader weekends on the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America schedule. Other weekends are set for VIRginia International Raceway (August 21-23), Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta (Sept. 4-6), WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca (Oct. 30-Nov. 1) and Sebring International Raceway (Nov. 11-13).

Castroneves Still Has Plenty of Fuel to Burn, Roads to Drive


By Jeff Olson IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – If you studied Helio Castroneves’ race Sunday at Road America, with its daring passes, surgical precision and timely adustments to changing weather conditions, you probably came to the same conclusion reached throughout the pits:

Helio’s not going anywhere -- except fast -- anytime soon.

At 45 years old, Castroneves laid down one of the best performances of his career, teaming with Ricky Taylor to win the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race for Acura Team Penske. He did it with a nearly blind pass in pouring rain, a move Taylor called “magic.”

Road America Takeaways: Mother Nature Shuffles the Deck


By David Phillips IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – While it’s inconvenient, even downright uncomfortable, for fans in attendance, there’s nothing like a rain shower (mixed with thunder, lightning and a dash of hail!) to liven-up a road race.

A mid-race downpour is Mother Nature’s joker; reshuffling the proverbial deck, forcing drivers to instantaneously adapt to treacherous conditions, teams to swap calculated strategies for split second decisions based on instincts rather than spread sheets, and race officials to find that delicate balance between safety and the suddenly added entertainment factor. Inevitably there are winners and losers - often not the ones who appeared destined to win or lose before the advent of precipitation.

Wet and Wild Win for Taylor, Castroneves and Acura Team Penske at Road America


By Jeff Olson IMSA Wire Service

ELKHART LAKE, Wis. – Helio Castroneves had no idea where he was going, but he knew he was fast.

Castroneves passed Renger van der Zande in the pouring rain with 5 minutes, 15 seconds left Sunday to win the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship Daytona Prototype international (DPi) class of the IMSA SportsCar Weekend at Road America.

Castroneves trailed van der Zande when the race in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, restarted with under eight minutes left following a 21-minute red flag and 22-minute full-course caution, as leader Oliver Jarvis went to the pits for rain tires. Covered by plumes of water from van der Zande’s car and slower traffic in front, Castroneves chased down the leader and eventually passed him when his car bobbled on the exit of Turn 14.

No Raining on Corvette Racings Parade as Taylor, Garcia Win Teams Third Straight in GTLM


By Mark Robinson IMSA Wire Service

ELKHART LAKE, Wis. – Even the drenching wrath of Mother Nature couldn’t prevent the hottest team in IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship GT Le Mans (GTLM) competition from continuing its winning ways.

In Sunday’s headlining event at the IMSA SportsCar Weekend at Road America that finished in a drenching downpour, Corvette Racing collected a 1-2 finish.
