are improving as a team, used some great strategy to get back in the race and to the podium, not only today but one race ago at Montreal as well. Alex ran a great race, he kept his head in the game, ran every single lap like qualifying, and with a little less traffic we might have pulled it off."
In addition to the runner-up showings today and at Montreal, GAINSCO also finished second at Barber Motorsports Park in April and in July's Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen. The team has one more shot a victory this year in the season-ending GRAND-AM Road Racing Championship Weekend at Lime Rock Park, September 27 - 29. The weekend's featured GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series race can be seen live on SPEED, Saturday, September 29, at 3 p.m. EDT/12 p.m. EDT.
- Just escaping the fuel-filler malfunction was almost a victory in itself for GAINSCO on Sunday. "We were worried," Fogarty said. "That fuel was gushing out and was flowing to the back of the car and had the potential, if it hit a hot header or something, it could have ignited, and that would have been really bad news. So we got back in the pits ASAP and all it took was a quick tap and it reset itself. It was definitely a potential tragedy narrowly averted, we have no idea what happened, it has never happened to us before, and we will have to take a look at it closely."
