Muscle Milk once again too strong for ALMS field at Motorsport


Muscle Milk Pickett Racing
continued its dominance at
Canadian Tire Motorsport
Park, winning for the third
straight year at the track on
Sunday in the fifth round of
the American Le Mans
Series. Klaus Graf and Lucas
Luhr brought home the win
in the No. 6 Honda
Performance Development
ARX-03a by more than 10
seconds over Dyson
Racing’s Chris Dyson and
Guy Smith.
There were spirited battles
in both the P2 and GT, as
Conquest Endurance’s
Martin Plowman and David
Heinemeier-Hansson won
their first race in the No. 37
Morgan-Nissan with
Plowman’s late-race drive
to hold off Level 5
Motorsports’ Christophe
Bouchut in P2.
In GT, Flying Lizard
Motorsports’ Jörg
Bergmeister and Patrick
Long won their second
straight ALMS race with a
close finish that saw the top
three cars finishing within
0.781 seconds. Bergmeister,
in the No. 45 Porsche 911
GT3 RSR, first fought off Jan
Magnussen in Corvette
Racing’s No. 3 Corvette C6
ZR1, then Johannes van
Overbeek in the No. 01
Extreme Speed Motorsports
Ferrari F458 Italia.
A late caution with 20
minutes remaining bunched
up the GT field, which didn’t
really need much bunching
up anyway. Bergmeister,
Magnussen and van
Overbeek raced nose-to-
tail with 11 minutes
remaining. Magnussen, who
teamed with Antonio Garcia
in the Corvette, hounded
Bergmeister for 10 of those
final minutes until van
Overbeek, driving with Scott
Sharp, got around the Dane
at the exit of the turn 5
right-hander. That move
gave Bergmeister just
enough breathing room for
the win.
In P2, Bouchut in the No.
055 Honda Performance
Development ARX-03b
chased down Plowman at the
final restart, and each of
the cars used traffic to their
advantage. Bouchut was too
aggressive with five
minutes left; he drifted into
the pit exit lane and drew a
stop-and-go penalty.
Plowman eventually won by
19.713 seconds in a race
that the Conquest car led
overall for the second
straight race.
At the front of the grid, Luhr
and Graf were firmly in
control in P1. Luhr
celebrated his 33rd birthday
by leading the majority of
his opening stint a day after
Graf won the pole position
on his 43rd birthday. The
Muscle Milk entry ran a
nearly flawless day. The
only blemish was a penalty
in the pit lane late in the
race.
RSR Racing’s Bruno
Junqueira and Tomy Drissi
won in Prototype Challenge
for the first time as a
pairing. Junqueira in the No.
9 ORECA FLM09 finished a
lap ahead of CORE
autosport’s Colin Braun and
Jon Bennett in the No. 05
entry.
The victory was the first in
ALMS for Junqueira since his
jump from open-wheel
racing. Drissi was a two-time
winner last year in the
class. The victory also was
the first for RSR after the
Paul Gentilozzi-owned team
fielded a Jaguar GT effort
from 2009-2011.
TRG won the GT Challenge
class for the second year in
a row at CTMP. Spencer
Pumpelly took advantage of
late engine troubles for JDX
Racing and drove the No. 66
Porsche 911 GT3 Cup to a
1.440-second victory over
Alex Job Racing’s Leh Keen.
The next round of the
American Le Mans Series
presented by Tequila Patrón
is the Mid-Ohio Sports Car
Challenge. The sixth round
of the 2012 championship is
set for Aug. 4 from Mid-Ohio
Sports Car Course.

A really reliable supply informed me Harry Reid will not likely launch the taxes and tax returns as she has certainly not compensated his full 10% (of overall “increase”) tithe to The Cathedral regarding Jesus Christ regarding Latter-Day Bienheureux (LDS). — any trust he gives having Romney. If Harry Reid are not this type of despicable hypocirite he’d launch the taxation assessments hence the Bishop connected with his LDS Ward can determine if Harry completely lied during their Forehead Suggest Interview the brow recommend like a Mormon’s “admintence card” in order to religious Forehead règles.
