CJ Wilson Racing Endures Rain-Soaked Race To Capture First GS Win

Danville, Va. - For a while, it looked like Mother Nature was going to win the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Oak Tree Grand Prix Saturday afternoon at Virginia International Raceway, and it was entirely unexpected.

The race started in hot but clear conditions, but when the rain came, it hit fast and with a vengeance, causing a 52-minute red flag. That came after a yellow-flag period where the cars tried to form up and follow the pace car, but with the entire field on slick tires, even that became impossible.

As the cars sat on pit road waiting out the rain, practically all of them had some sort of damage or mud and grass in the radiator. The field changed to Continental rain tires, and when the competition resumed, it was as intense as the weather.

Third was Joey Hand in the No. 66 Ford Chip Ganassi Racing Ford GT, with a 1:41.817. Those were the only cars to qualify in the 1:41s - fourth was the No. 62 Ferrari 488 GTE of Risi Competizione’s Giancarlo Fisichella.
