Chevrolet Sports Car Classic, Belle Isle Park, June 2

 

Winners

P: Eric Curran/Felipe Nasr, No. 31 Whelen Engineering Racing Cadillac DPi-V.R

GTD: Katherine Legge/Mario Farnbacher, No. 86 Meyer Shank Racing Acura NSX GT3

How the Champions Fared

The 100-minute battle in Detroit proved to be the lone victory of the season for the No. 31 team, but it turned out to be enough for the eventual champions. The win moved them into a tie for the Prototype points lead with their No. 5 Cadillac teammates Barbosa and Albuquerque.

It also was an important race for the GTD championship fight, mostly because the victory by Legge and Farnbacher led the Meyer Shank team to continue running the car in the WeatherTech Championship after initially planning a Tequila Patrón North American Endurance Cup run only.

Sellers and Snow claimed their fourth straight top-three result with a third-place run in the No. 48 Lamborghini and departed the Motor City with a three-point advantage in the GTD standings over Legge.

The GTLM class got the weekend off to focus its attention on the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
