Stevenson Camaro Ready To Take On Texas

The No. 57 Stevenson Motorsports Camaro GT.R piloted by John Edwards and Robin Liddell earned a fourth row starting position for Saturday’s GRAND-AM of the Americas Presented by GAINSCO and Total event at Circuit of the Americas as the Rolex Sports Car Series stages Round 2 of the 2013 championship. Edwards qualified the No. 57 Camaro with a quick time of 2:10.615-seconds and will open the 2.75-hour race before handing the controls over to Liddell who will take it to the finish.

Unfortunately, following the qualifying session, the team discovered a small issue and changed the motor, precipitating a move to the back of the field for the start of the race.

“I’m pretty pleased with how qualifying went. I only did a few laps in the GT car yesterday and showed up just in time to hop into the GS car for qualifying today,” said Edwards who was feeling a bit under the weather due to a fever but qualified for both GRAND-AM races in fourth. “Not too bad to have a couple of fourths! I can’t complain too much about that. I feel okay. I’m not 100% but I’ll have no problem starting and just doing the opening stint for both races tomorrow. Now that my fever and headache are gone, the two big things that were limiting me from moving around are gone. I’m still a little worn down and sick to my stomach, but I can deal with that for a short stint tomorrow.”

The team worked through a variety of set-ups on the No. 57 during two practice sessions during the day and that work paid off in the quick 15-minute qualifying session.

“John (Edwards) did just a few laps in GT and no laps in GS before both qualifying sessions but got them both into fourth place,” said Team Manager Mike Johnson. “It just shows how well the guys have been working and how good the car is. I think we’re a little better in GS than in GT. I think the driver differences - especially at this track - are probably a little tougher for the GT guys. But the car is running good, the team is working out great and we’re ready to go racing!”

After a disappointing finish at Daytona, Stevenson Motorsports would like nothing more than to return to the podium at GRAND-AM’s inaugural Circuit of the Americas event.

Saturday features a final Rolex Series practice session ahead of the 2.75-hour race which is set to begin at 4:00 PM (ET).

SPEED will televise the event beginning at 5:30 PM (ET). Live timing and scoring can be followed at www.grand-am.com.
