Corvette Racing fans:  

We need to help Corvette Racing win the last race of the year, the "TEAM TO WIN" award!

Corvette Racing has been nominated based on winning a previous "Team to Win" award from the Watkins Glen International race.  (see below).

Let's show IMSA that we fans are a powerful group, that we stand behind Corvette Racing and we will be a factor Atherton, Elkins and IMSA will have to contend with in 2015.  If you ever wanted to make a statement to IMSA this is it!

Nominees:

6) Corvette Racing - Watkins Glen International
This year’s Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen marked Corvette Racing’s first event at the world-famous Watkins Glen International in the team’s 15 years of existence.  It was certainly a debut to remember, as drivers Antonio Garcia and Jan Magnussen led the team to a dominant GT Le Mans (GTLM) victory in the No. 3 Chevrolet Corvette C7.R.   The duo led most of the day to earn their third straight class victory in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.  In the process, Garcia and Magnussen moved into the lead of the GTLM driver's championship, as did Chevrolet in the manufacturer standings and the No. 3 Corvette C7.R in team points.  Garcia and Magnussen also won the third round of the Tequila Patrón North American Endurance Cup - a four-race championship made of the TUDOR series' four endurance events.  The Garcia/Magnussen combination led 154 of the 185 GTLM laps.  Magnussen drove the opening stint and took the lead from the pole-sitting BMW on the first lap.  Despite holding as much as a 30-second lead at various points, the final minutes were tense ones.  A full-course caution with 25 minutes left brought the Corvette inside its fuel window for the rest of the race.  A final yellow period just after the restart meant a final-lap dash that saw Garcia hold off the second-place Viper by 0.185 seconds.  It was a dramatic finish to a historic day for Corvette Racing.
