WeatherTech.ca Finishes Fifth at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park

Cooper MacNeil (Hinsdale, Ill.) had the wheel of the No. 22 WeatherTech.ca Racing Porsche for the start of the race. The young University of Colorado at Boulder student had a strong opening stint handing the white and black WeatherTech.ca Porsche over to teammate Leh Keen (Charleston, S.C.) in the lead on lap 52. As the field cycled through pit stops Keen was busy making up ground. He managed to move up three positions during his stint to give the team a strong points weekend. Unofficial points have the WeatherTech Racing duo in third, just three points out of the championship lead in GTD.

"It was a good points day," Keen said. "It was a tough weekend all the way around. We made a lot of changes all weekend trying to find the ultimate set-up. The track was really tricky out there today. Everyone looked like they were struggling with their cars as well. The guys made a great change late on the car and I was able to get a good top five finish today. We have had a few top five's this year and that is why we are up at the top fighting for the points lead."

MacNeil likes the finish after a very tough 12th place at The Glen two weeks ago.

"Overall it was a good weekend," MacNeil said. "After a tough race at The Glen a top five finish is really good. I was fighting understeer and then back to oversteer during my stint. It made it difficult. Leh did a great job to get us back up there in fourth. We finished ahead of the two cars that were in front of us coming into this race in points, so that is a pretty good day."

Alex Job, team owner, likes the points day.

"We struggled with the car all weekend," Job said. "Leh and Cooper were providing good direction, but we just couldn't hit it just right for them. Throw in the threat of rain and I think we did a good job to come out of here making up points on those in front of us."

The TUDOR United SportsCar Championship will travel to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Brickyard Grand Prix to run July 24-25.

The TUDOR United SportsCar Championship GTD (GT Daytona) Class is made up of some the world's most sophisticated cars, including the Porsche 911 GT America, Ferrari 458, Aston Martin, BMW Z4, Viper SRT and Audi R8. All GTD Class cars run on the spec Continental tire.

Alex Job Racing is one of the most successful teams in sports car racing with 70 wins (since 1995); including two Rolex 24 GT Class wins in 1999 and 2013. This record is supported by 48 pole positions and 106 podium finishes. The team has won five championships (GTC 2013, 2012, GT in 2004, 2003 and 2002) complimented by their two GT class wins at Le Mans. The team also boasts nine Sebring 12-hour wins.
