text size: A- A+
Dalziel and Popow finished 3.438 seconds ahead of the No. 01 Chip Ganassi Racing BMW Riley driven by Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas, who took second place. BMW’s victory at the Brickyard Grand Prix marked the debut race for the new 4.5-liter engine.
This weekend’s success moved Ryan Dalziel and Alex Popow to the top of the Daytona Prototype drivers’ championship standings.
“I am so thrilled for everyone; this win is great,” said Peter Baron, Starworks Motorsports Team Principal. “We can’t thank everyone at BMW of North America and Dinan Cars enough for getting us here in a week. Our crew was also unbelievable to get to grips so quickly with a new engine; a different handling car and the drivers were all amazing too. It feels so great that we are kissing the bricks again and now, with a 10 points lead in the Championship, this win could not have come at a better time for our title bid.”
