|The in-class racing was fierce and would come down to the final laps of the race. Starting with the second to the last lap of the race, the No. 67 regained the lead. Westbrook, managing his tires and fuel, brought the battle worn Ford GT across the finish line to take the checkered flag and regain the championship points lead.
“It’s just an incredible run we’re having right now,” Westbrook said. “Confidence is so high. The wins aren’t coming easy by any stretch of the imagination. We’re having to work for them. This is a track that really suits our car, but it was tough at the end. The BMW was fast, but I guess they short-fueled too much. We’re just delighted to get the win. It’s such a great run for the whole program, Ford CGR. It’s a hell of a ride right now and we’re just enjoying every moment of it.”
