|Stacy drove a great opening stint, setting up Marcelli to jump in for the second stint. Marcelli drove a lean fuel strategy, taking the checkered flag on mere fumes before running out of fuel on the way to Victory Lane.
“It’s a pleasure racing here at home,” said Marcelli. “I love the weather, I love the racetrack, the people. It was a good day. It was a tough stint for me…it became a fuel conservation race for us. I went to the ‘fuel used’ page on the dash and just watched it and called out the number every single lap, so much that we were lifting early for turn one, two and eight, and basically just using the gearbox to slow the car down. It paid off. We saved about two-and-a-half laps of fuel and were able to win.”
The No. 80 AWA team of Martin Barkey and Brett Sandberg finished a strong second, following up their win in Watkins Glen. In addition, the No. 7 VOLT Racing Ford GT4 finished just off the podium in P4.
