Stevenson Motorsports Barber Preview

Rolex Series: The No. 57 Chevrolet Camaro showed great pace, but contact from a fellow GT machine meant the effort from the Stevenson Motorsports group did not deliver the hoped for result. Despite battling food poisoning all weekend, John Edwards put the No. 57 fourth on the grid but during pre-race team preparation, debris was found in the engine oil filter and the group elected to swap engines prior to the race. Starting from the rear of the field, Edwards moved up to fourth within the first 40 minutes of the race, but that forward movement was halted when damage sustained from contact saw the No. 57 spend several laps in the pit lane for repairs. Longtime Stevenson Motorsports driver Robin Liddell returned the car to the track and ran the same lap times as the leaders but with valuable time lost in the pits, Stevenson Motorsports settled for a 15th place finish.

Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge: The No. 9 Stevenson Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro of Matt Bell and John Edwards finished 10th in GRAND-AM’s debut in Austin. The team fought through food poisoning, unwelcome contact, and a fuel pressure issue to score a second consecutive top-10 finish. Edwards qualified fourth and fought among the top-three before turning the car over to Bell to take to the finish. Despite having to play a conservative hand with fuel strategy, Bell was fighting for podium position but the forward progress was thwarted when contact from a competitor sent the No. 9 spinning off track. Bell was able to recover and take it to the finish, but the damage was done as he brought the car home 10th at the checkered flag. The result moved Stevenson Motorsports to third in the championship standings.

Rolex Series: Stevenson Motorsports has competed at Barber Motorsports Park since 2004 and has scored three top-five finishes and seven top-10s at the track. The team’s best finish at Barber Motorsports Park came in 2009 when Andrew Davis and Robin Liddell claimed victory after starting fifth.

Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge: Stevenson Motorsports has raced at Barber Motorsports Park since 2010 – earning its best finish of fifth after starting second on the grid in 2011 with drivers Matt Bell and John Edwards.

Robin Liddell and John Edwards will once again team in the No. 57 Camaro in Rolex Series competition while Edwards will join Matt Bell in the No. 9 Camaro for the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge event.

Rolex Series: 16th
CTSCC: 3rd
