ALTON, Va. (Aug. 24, 2015) – Spencer Pumpelly, a Virginia native, finally scored his first career win at VIRginia International Raceway. Pumpelly was victorious in Saturday’s Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge win, but was unable to repeat the performance in Sunday’s TUDOR United SportsCar Championship race.
In CTSC, Pumpelly’s Rennsport One teammate, Luis Rodriguez Jr., qualified the No. 17 RS1 Porsche Cayman 10th on the ST grid in a qualifying session with limited green time. Pumpelly knew the starting spot was not representative of the car, nor his teammate’s speed, since Rodriguez Jr. was blocked on his best qualifying lap.
