Barbosa teamed with Darren Law to give the Action Express Corvette DP team the lead in the North American Endurance Championship, a special three-race competition that began with the Rolex 24 at Daytona and ends July 27 at Indianapolis.
“Obviously, I was able to use the (slower) traffic a little bit to my advantage,” Barbosa said. “Gurney did a great job but when I saw my opportunity, I knew it was probably my best shot and I had to go.”
In the production-based GT class, Robin Liddell and John Edwards co-drove their Stevenson Auto Group Chevrolet Camaro to the win, and took the lead in the NAEC’s GT points.
Action Express leads Starworks Motorsport — which finished third place Sunday — by two points in the NAEC’s Daytona Prototype standings going into the Indianapolis finale.
