Racing shines through soggy day at IMS



“This is amazing,” Curran said. “Hats off to GRAND-AM and everybody who put this event together. It’s great to be here, could not be more excited.”

Aschenbach met his teammate just past the start finish line and climbed the fence to celebrate their victory.

“I don’t think it sunk in until we crossed that checkered flag right at the end of the race here and kissing those bricks,” said Aschenbach, who led 15 of the No. 01’s 25 laps led. “An awful lot of history, all of the races and winners and everything happens here really does mean something.”

Taking the Street Tuner victory was the No. 82 BimmerWorld Racing team of Daniel Rogers and Seth Thomas in their BMW 328i, the first career victory together in the series.

“We are really happy. Both of us are happy to get our first win together at Indy which is huge but for me I’m over the moon,” Rogers said. “I mean, how can you beat your first professional win at Indianapolis Motor Speedway? That’s just incredible.”
