ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (AP) — Dane Cameron and Eric Curran raced to their second consecutive IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship victory of the season and second in a row at Road America on Sunday.
Curran started the No. 31 Action Express Racing Corvette Daytona Prototype from fifth on the grid and drove the opening stint, before handing the car over to Cameron for the finish in the 2-hour, 40 minute event. Cameron passed Jordan Taylor in the No. 10 Wayne Taylor Racing Corvette DP to take the lead for the first time with just over an hour remaining.
Cameron briefly lost the lead during the final pit-stop sequence, but retook it with 35 minutes to go. He was able to get away from teammate Joao Barbosa in the No. 5 Corvette DP on a late restart with approximately five minutes remaining and held the advantage over the closing three laps, winning by 1.152 seconds over Barbosa.
It was the third consecutive 1-2 finish in IMSA competition for the Action Express Racing team. It enabled Cameron and Curran to close the gap in the Prototype class championship standings to one point, 253-252, behind two-time defending champions Barbosa and Christian Fittipaldi with two races.
