Garcia/Westbrook team up to win Porsche 250
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Richard Westbrook and Antonio Garcia won the Porsche 250 for Corvette's first Daytona Prototype victory.
The pair, who started on the pole Saturday, ended the two-year winning streak of Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas on the 2.38-mile road course at Barber Motorsports Park.
Westbrook got his first win and Garcia his second. It's the first DP victory for Spirit of Daytona Racing.
They are drivers of a Corvette Daytona Prototype, which made its debut at the Rolex 24. Garcia pulled away over the last three laps after a caution.
Westbrook had captured his first career pole in the series to lead a Top 3 qualifying sweep for the new Corvette DP.
Alex Gurney and Jon Fogarty finished second in the 2-hour, 45-minute race, followed by Rojas and Pruett.
