Pumpelly Kicks Off 2016 With Podium and Strong Pace at Daytona

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.

Pumpelly's 2015 Season His Best Yet

 


ATLANTA, Ga. (Dec. 15, 2015) – Spencer Pumpelly’s 15th season of professional racing was possibly his very best. Competing in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge and Pirelli World Challenge, Pumpelly amassed 11 podiums and seven victories.
 
All of these results came with teams new to Pumpelly and in some cases, new to professional racing. Never the less, he leveraged his knowledge and skill to help Park Place Motorsports, Rennsport One and DWW Motorsports the results they deserved.
 
"The 2015 season will be memorable for the opportunities I had,” Pumpelly said. “I was able to drive for three great teams with several great teammates and help bring each team to victory lane. The season had several ups and downs but when I look at the seven wins and 11 podiums we were all able to secure, it's hard not to call the season a resounding success."

BRASELTON, Ga. (Oct. 5, 2015) – Spencer Pumpelly battled hazardous rain conditions at his home track, Road Atlanta, for the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge and TUDOR United SportsCar Championship season finales.

Though the series is prepared to compete in wet conditions, the 2.54-mile, 12-turn road course became completely saturated and at times was plagued with dangerous puddles and rivers.
