Matt and Hugh Plumb finished the Grand-Am Cup season strong with a win in the ST class at Virginia Motorsports Park. Driving the #27 Bill Fenton Motorsports Acura RSX-S, the brothers scored their second win of the season and helped Acura edge out BMW for the manufacturers' championship.

"The goals for drivers and the team owner run parallel," Team owner Bill Fenton said. "Drivers want a driving championship to advance their career. As a team owner and a Honda dealer, my focus has always been on winning the team championship for our overall program, and the manufacturer championship for Acura as our way of validating product reliability."

The Plumb brothers, who drive as a team, were consistent all season. They scored points in seven of the last 10 races, including two wins. They had seven podiums and finished second in the team championship, a mere eight points behind the team of Don Salama and Will Turner of Turner Motorsports. Combined with the efforts of Bob Beede and Bill Fenton in the second BFM car, the team finished 14 points ahead of BMW.
