Joao Barbosa, Darren Law win at Watkins Glen in Action Express Corvette DP

Barbosa and Law combined to average 102.827 mph, with Barbosa edging Gurney by 0.238 seconds at the finish at Watkins Glen International.

“Obviously, I was able to use the (slower) traffic a little bit to my advantage,” Barbosa said. “Gurney did a great job but when I saw my opportunity, I knew it was probably my best shot and I had to go.”

In the production-based GT class, Robin Liddell and John Edwards co-drove their Stevenson Auto Group Chevrolet Camaro to the win, and took the lead in the NAEC’s GT points.

Action Express leads Starworks Motorsport — which finished third place Sunday — by two points in the NAEC’s Daytona Prototype standings going into the Indianapolis finale.
