Wright Motorsports' Kuhlman Wins Masters Class

Wright Motorsports' Kasey Kuhlman backed up his two Masters class victories at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca earlier this month with another one Saturday afternoon in IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge competition at Lime Rock Park.

The 45-minute race was supposed to be the first half of a doubleheader, but a similar race scheduled for later Saturday afternoon was "abandoned" before the start due to heavy rain and a local curfew. IMSA will decide if that race will be rescheduled, and is so, when and where it will be held. Another Wright Motorsports driver, Michael Schein, had the pole for the nightcap.

Schein, of New York City, started second in the series' first race of the day but was passed by Christina Nielsen on the first lap. He ran in third place until lap 31 with only 15 minutes remaining in the race, but dropped to sixth at that point. He ended up seventh at the checkered, right behind Kuhlman, who finished sixth overall in addition to being first in the Masters class.

Kuhlman, of Cincinnati, started fifth overall with his Kuhlsport #15 but dropped to eighth in the early stages of the race. He got seventh by passing another teammate, Santiago Creel of Mexico City, Mexico, on lap four, and sixth when he passed Schein on lap 32. Schein was 9.318 seconds behind Kuhlman at the finish, but he set the fastest lap of any of the 25 drivers in the race with a 53.231 (103.474 miles per hour) on lap six of 47, which was a new track record.

Creel qualified eighth and was as high as seventh at one point, but he had to be content with a top-10 finish when he placed ninth overall. His #60 Porsche is sponsored by Hotbook and Under Armour.

Wright Motorsports' representative in the Gold Cup class, Kristin Treager of Tulsa, Okla., placed sixth in that division with her #52. It is sponsored by the Sheehan Racing Team, Women's Sports Foundation, Women in the Winner's Circle Foundation and Boston Avenue Law PLLC.

Treager qualified seventh in class for the race, which was held on her birthday. She got a great start, moving up to fourth in class by the end of lap one, but she spun working lap four and dropped to ninth. She then worked her way back up to sixth before the checkered dropped.

The next event on the series' schedule is another doubleheader at Watkins Glen International in Watkins Glen, N.Y. June 27-28.
