Henzler was fastest in the first practice on Friday, and third in the second practice, although he would eventually qualified fifth on the 2.1-mile street circuit.

Determined to improve his position, Henzler drove hard, taking third in the class at turn one on the first lap put him. He then worked his way up to first by the end of his stint.

Sellers received the car in third position after an unfavorable yellow flag, and maintained an incident-free run with consistent lap times that advanced him to first where he opened a gap on the field.

Team Manager Walker commented: ?"What an event! The City of Baltimore was a great host to the race, especially after Hurricane Irene delayed construction of the track. The venue was packed and the fans were so friendly and enjoyed themselves. It was great to have our first dry race win at the first ever Baltimore Grand Prix."

Now the team moves on to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, CA, for a six-hour race on Sept. 15-16, and the season finale - the 1,000-mile/10-hour endurance classic Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta, September 28 - October 1.
