Luhr, Graf win Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock
Lucas Luhr survived an early battle with Chris Dyson to help
score the third consecutive American Le Mans Series victory for
Muscle Milk Pickett Racing and co-driver Klaus Graf in the
Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park on Saturday.
Luhr started from the pole in the No. 6 Honda and turned the car
over to Graf with 45 minutes remaining. By then, the Dyson team
encountered problems that removed them from contention, allowing
Graf to cruise to a six-lap victory.
John Edwards and Dirk Muller teamed to win the GT class in the
No. 56 BMW Z4 GTE co-owned by IndyCar champion Bobby Rahal, David
Letterman and Chicago businessman Mike Lanigan.
Ryan Briscoe, who is also competing in Sunday’s IndyCar race at
Pocono Raceway, won the P2 class with co-driver Scott Tucker.
