After Michael McCann jr took a thrilling victory in yesterday’s TC America Race 1 at Virginia International Raceway, his McCann Racing teammate Britt Casey jr claimed a dominant win in today’s Race 2.
At the start Michael Hurczyn took the lead in the FCP Euro Volkswagen Golf GTI, while Victor Gonzales sprinted from fourth on the grid to second ahead of Bryan Putt and Nate Vincent.
Casey, who was sitting outside on the front row, found himself at the bottom of the field and began to recover.
In a few laps Vincent and Casey joined Gonzales in a close fight for the second position and, after a few skirmishes, they both went through. Later on Casey overtook Vincent for second and began to close in on Hurczyn.
Midway through the 40-minute race the silver Audi caught up the Golf and managed to overtake it. However Hurczyn didn’t lose contact and continued to follow at a striking distance. Despite this threat, Casey scored his first victory in TC America from Hurczyn and Vincent.
Hurczyn extended his leadership in the standings to 27 points over his teammate Vincent.
TC America’s will then visit Sonoma on June 8 and 9.
