Liddell/Davis Score Continental Tire SportsCar Win
- Updated: July 25, 2014
The Grand Sport-class team of Robin Liddell/Andrew Davis scored a 3.49-second over-all win Friday in the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, run on the2.43 mi. road course at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
In the Street Tuner class, leader Remo Russcitti’s Porsche ran out of fuel on the final lap, giving the class win to a surprised Corey Lewis, also in a Porsche, who had resigned himself to a second-place finish.
“I couldn’t believe it when I came around the last corner,” Lewis explained as he saw the slowing car of Russcitti, with the checkered flag in sight.
Liddell’s silver Camaro took the lead for good on lap 58 and held off Trent Hindman’s BMW for the win.
“We started seventh and kept moving forward, “said Liddell, whose team has won at Sebring and Watkins Glen earlier this year.
Three caution periods slowed the pace of the 86-lap, 2.5- hour race.
The ST finish was shuffled in the last laps when the second-in-class BMW of Terry Borcheller was running low on fuel and slowed to conserve what was left in the tank.
Later, thinking they could run fast enough to hold position, the crew radioed that Borcheller, the 2013 ST-class champion, could speed up enough to finish.
He finally limped home in 25th-place, one lap down.
Shelby Blackstock, who also competes in the Pro Mazda open-wheel series for Andretti Autosport, finished third in the GS class. Blackstock is the son of country music star Reba McEntire.
