The CTF/R4R racing season has moved off to a winning start in 2013. Primary team partner drivers James Sofronas, and the "all Patrick" lineup of Long and Lindsey, made it to victory lane this past weekend. Sofronas drove his No. 14 Audi GMG/Racing4Research Audi R8 LMS to his second 2013 Pirelli World Challenge GT win in a row on the streets of Long Beach while Long and Lindsey made it to victory lane for the first time as a duo in the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series Road Atlanta race. The second place finish was also the first top-three result for Park Place Motorsports and its No. 73 Children's Tumor Foundation/HITRUST Porsche 911 GT3.
"A fantastic day for our race team," Lindsey said. "The Park Place Motorsports guys did the best job in the paddock. Wish our friends back in Dallas could have been here and everyone at the Children's Tumor Foundation. We were thinking of all of our NF Heroes today."
The Road Atlanta race also saw the No. 01 TELMEX/Chip Ganassi Racing BMW Riley of Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas win overall for the second time this year. The perennial powerhouse team is the first top-level GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series Daytona Prototype team to support the CTF/R4R cause.
