NO. 4 KV RACING TECHNOLOGYCHEVROLET/DALLARA/FIRESTONE
Started: 21st (Gridded by entrant points)
Finished: 16th“I’m disappointed about how the race ended! We were fast in the wet and making up positions but when I switched to slicks I hit the tire barrier in turn 3 and lost a lap! The conditions this weekend were really tough and we definitely had a car to be up front in both races. Unfortunately thought we are going home with 15th and 16th instead. I have to congratulate my team mate Sebastien on a great win today and hopefully that will be me on the podium soon.”

NO.11 TEAM MISTIC E-CIGS – KVSH RACING CHEVROLET/DALLARA/FIRESTONE
Started: 9th (Gridded by entrant points)
Finished: 1st“Obviously, after getting everything wrong yesterday it is an awesome feeling coming out on top today. Yesterday we couldn’t do anything right, we were always on the wrong side of the fence. Today everything went our way. The Mistic E-Cigs crew had flawless pit stops. We had a great strategy and we made the fuel mileage we needed to. It was one of those days where everything went our way. To win here in Detroit, in Chevy’s hometown, is pretty special. Hopefully this is just the start and we can get a couple more wins for the team and our sponsors, Mistic E-Cigs, Hydroxycut, Circle K, Plantroncis, GEICO everyone.”Fast Facts:
