Stevenson Motorsports Preview: Laguna Seca


A LOOK BACK – Kansas Speedway:
Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge: Stevenson Motorsports claimed the team’s second win of the season at Kansas Speedway as Matt Bell and John Edwards combined to lead a race-high 27 laps in the No. 9 Camaro GS.R en route to victory in the SFP Grand Prix. The result marked the team’s fourth podium finish this year and was a welcome result after two disappointing results in the previous two events. The victory sees Stevenson Motorsports remain second in the championship, improving their margin over the third place team by 26 points.

Rolex Series: The SFP Grand Prix marked Round 10 of the 2013 GRAND-AM championship, and with a hard-earned run to fourth place, the team is hoping that the result is another positive step towards a run to the championship title. Edwards started the race from fourth on the grid and settled in to run in podium position in the opening stages. A pit stop for a driver change saw the team looking to make a wicker change at the back of the car to provide more stability on the high-speed oval. Unfortunately, a complication with installing the wicker saw the pit stop go longer than planned as Liddell returned to the track back in eighth place on Lap 30. A subsequent pit stop where the team elected to skip the tire change helped to claw back track position as the car moved up to run as high as second. A final stop for fuel, wicker change, and new tires as well as a driver change set the stage for Edwards to run the final segment and cross the finish line in fourth to earn valuable championship points. With the result, Stevenson Motorsports is currently just three points out of the points lead with two big races to go.

Rewind - Laguna Seca:
Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge: Matt Bell and John Edwards have never NOT won a Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge event at Laguna Seca which is Bell’s home track. The duo started on the pole and led 51 laps en route to claiming victory in 2011 and repeated their winning ways in last year’s race after leading 27 laps. The pair will look to go for three-in-a row on Sunday.

Rolex Sports Car Series: Stevenson Motorsports has five starts at Laguna Seca - earning a best finish of fourth in 2011 with drivers Robin Liddell and Ronnie Bremer.

LAGUNA SECA DRIVER LINE-UP:
Robin Liddell and John Edwards will once again team in the No. 57 Camaro GT. R main Rolex Series competition while Edwards will join Matt Bell in the No. 9 Camaro for the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge event.

CHAMPIONSHIP STANDINGS:
Rolex Series: 3rd (-3 points to leader)
CTSCC: 2nd (-51 points to leader)
