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.
