GIMPLE AND EVERSLEY NOW SECOND IN CTSCC CHAMPIONSHIP RUN
Questionable call by officials caps off a forgettable weekend for C360R in the deep south
(Birmingham, Alabama) -- Compass360 Racing's #75 Honda Civic Si headed into the third round of the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge with a five-point lead in the Driver and Team's championship. Hot shoes Kyle Gimple and Ryan Eversley were optimistic of a good result despite the fact that the tight, twisting and traditionally low-grip circuit isn't an ideal track for the Hondas. By the end of the weekend, they'd dropped to second place, 12 points out of first, after being thrown curve balls by a combination of heavy weather during the test and practice days, and new interpretations of long-standing rules from the tower. And of the three C360R cars in attendance, they fared best of all.

JAMES COLBORN REPORTS ON DAYTONA RACE WITH ANDREW JORDAN
What an amazing place Daytona is. It’s huge! Rumor has it that when the NASCAR races happen here, Daytona becomes the 8th largest city in Florida. 500,000 people can pack into here but for us, we’re lucky to have 10% of that. Not a bad number though. In some places, racing draws friends family and the strange bloke walking his dog and so even the smaller number of people is always amazing to see.
