Rayhall has remained consistent in Monterey, Calif., and so has his young rival Ryan Booth. The Performance Tech driver placed second in today’s race, just as he did at the 61st Anniversary Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh from Florida. Booth went on to win the second race at Sebring Int’l Raceway, and is satisfied with his start to the weekend.
“It was a good race, I just didn’t have the pace to keep up with Sean,” Booth said. “I think the only thing he did wrong was not let me catch up to him and pass him. But congrats to him. The car guys did awesome and I’m glad we were able to get second and secure some solid points.”
The field went yellow from lap 13 to 17 when Christian Potolicchio of 8Star Motorsports and Daniel Mancini with Performance Tech made contact at turn four. With less than five minutes to go the race was restarted.
Scott Tucker and Level 5 Motorsports finished third overall and won the Master’s championship with a race time of 30:20.650.
“The race was pretty good, nothing major,” Tucker said. “We had a pretty good start and got out front. That late caution got tricky and guys just warmed up tires right so it was all pretty good.”
