Lucas Luhr and Klaus Graf won for the second straight year in the American Le Mans Series at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on Saturday.

Luhr became series career leader in victories with 43, and he and Graf are the first drivers to repeat at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca since 2007.

Luhr took advantage of a daring move at the downhill Corkscrew in his No. 6 Honda Performance Development ARX-03a and a late-race puncture for Rebellion Racing's Neel Jani to win the American Le Mans Monterey.

Luhr won by 6.352 seconds thanks to a late-race caution and a one-lap dash to the finish.

Corvette Racing's Jan Magnussen and Antonio Garcia won a close GT race, with the first five cars finishing within 3 seconds.
