Quadracci Rolls to Win in Incident-Filled Masters Endurance Legends Race
Two mid-race incidents resulted in an extended full-course yellow that saw this afternoon’s Masters Endurance Legends race at the WeatherTech International Challenge with Brian Redman end under yellow, with Joel Quadracci (2013 Oreca 03) inheriting the lead after the intersection of the double-yellow and mandatory pit stops in the 30-minute race jumbled the field.
At the checkered flag, Quadracci was followed by Travis Engen (2005 Audi R8 LMP) and Keith Frieser (2012 Oreca LMP2), with David Porter (2007 Peugeot 908 HDI) and Gregory Thornton (2013 Oreca03 LMP) rounding out the top 5.
Quadracci had qualified fourth; Engen, sixth; Frieser, fifth; Porter, second; and Thornton, 19th.
At the start of the race, Bennett established a small lead over Porter and held that lead through the first six laps of the race, with Quadracci, Engen, and Frieser in hot pursuit. However, on lap 7, after setting the race’s fastest lap on lap 6, Bennett went off course in the Carousel, initiating the yellow.
So much for an end-of-the-day race.
Masters Endurance Legends teams will return to the track here at Road America at 10:30 a.m. CDT tomorrow.
