Exciting Racing the Name of the Game for Grand Prix of Kansas
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (June 7, 2014) – Road racing fans weren’t disappointed at Kansas Speedway tonight with great racing for the second consecutive year on Kansas Speedway’s infield road course.
A familiar name to NASCAR fans visited Victory Lane as Collin Braun and his co-driver Jon Bennett of CORE autosport won the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship Prototype Challenge Series race.
“We rolled off the truck good, made a few changes and we had a good car from there,” said Braun. “This win is a testament to the team.”
For Bennett, it was a surreal weekend as he watched his son graduate and capped the weekend off with a win.
Kris Wilson and James Davison with TRG-AMR won the Grand Sport (GS) class of the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, giving Aston Martin its first win in the series.
