Vasser Sullivan Racing and Corvette Racing looked pretty evenly matched on pace in GTD PRO, so it was pit stop strategy and execution on which the Michelin GT Challenge for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship ultimately turned to the favor of the No. 3 C8.
Vasser Sullivan Racing and Corvette Racing were evenly matched in terms of pace in the GTD PRO race at VIRginia International Raceway. However, it was the pit stop strategy and execution that ultimately gave the No. 3 C8.R driven by Jordan Taylor and Antonio Garcia the victory. Despite the win, it only had a small impact on their championship hopes as Ben Barnicoat and Jack Hawksworth still hold a 144-point lead going into the final two races. In the GTD race, Madison Snow and Bryan Sellers dominated, securing a record-breaking fifth win of the season in their Paul Miller Racing BMW M4 GT3. This win almost guarantees them the Sprint Cup Championship for the second consecutive year. Despite a couple of cautions, the race overall was uninterrupted and the battle for the lead intensified during the pit stops. Taylor made a strong attack on Barnicoat, but was unable to take the lead until the second round of pit stops. Corvette Racing’s pit strategy played a crucial role in securing the victory.
