Telmex dominates at Watkins Glen

Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas won the Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen Saturday June 5 in the Daytona Prototype class. This is the third consecutive time they have been able to pull off a win at WGI. Their car was very strong in qualifying on Friday as it broke the track lap record with a time of 1:40.562 (121.716 mph).
Pruett led the final 30 of 191 laps on the 3.4-mile Watkins Glen International long circuit, beating Max Angelelli to the checkered flag by 1.623 seconds. On Monday, the Chip Ganassi team finished last in the Daytona Prototype field after Rojas went off in Turn 1 at Lime Rock Park.
"I love coming to Watkins Glen and I love racing here," said Pruett, who scored his 27th career victory driving a Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates Daytona Prototype - with an event record four of them coming in the six-hour Glen event.
The No. 99 GAINSCO Chevrolet Riley of Jon Fogarty, Alex Gurney, and Jimmie Johnson was also a strong competitor, however a spin late in the race took them out of contention for the win.
Max Angelelli, who placed second in the June 5th race, was competitive as expected in the SunTrust Racing Ford Dallara based on his previous finishes of third in 2006, 2007, 2008 and second last year.
In GT, Andy Lally, Spencer Pumpelly and Bob Doyle came from last in the 29-car field to win. It was Lally's second triumph of the season, joining Ted Ballou when TRG won in its most recent Rolex Series appearance in April at Virginia International Raceway. Lally and Pumpelly also won the GT portion of the race in 2007.
The next race for the Rolex Series will be the June 19 EMCO Gears Classic presented by Key Bank at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.
