DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Feb. 3, 2016) – Kicking off his 2016 season at Daytona International Speedway, Spencer Pumpelly got behind the wheel of two very quick and competitive cars, courtesy of Rennsport One and Change Racing. While one car took Pumpelly to the podium, the other was the victim of contact during a fight for the race lead.
After scoring four wins for Rennsport One in the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge last year, Pumpelly is back in the No. 16 Legistics/RS1/Cobra Golf/Sabelt Porsche Cayman. This season he is paired with a new co-driver: Nick Galante.
Galante qualified the Cayman 14th on the ST grid for Saturday’s BMW 200. The race itself was the first time Galante was able to get some dry weather running in the car, because of persistent rain during practice and qualifying. Despite this, he advanced through the ST field and handed the car over to Pumpelly in seventh.
