ELKHART LAKE, Wis. – Rearden Racing continued its regular trips to SRO America victory lane this weekend at the famed Road America four-mile road circuit with the combination of Kris Wilson and John Allen keeping their winning ways in the GT4 SprintX Am class and Paul Terry making three podium showings in the GT4 Sprint Am category.
Fighting wet conditions on Friday at the historic Wisconsin racing plant, the Rearden Racing operation worked hard to battle towards the front of the field in the 60-minute GT4 SprintX events with the duo of Wilson and Allen, both of Colorado, scoring the GT4 Sprint Am win Saturday in the No. 16 John Allen Racing/Rearden Racing Mercedes-AMG GT4 sports car. Wilson also set the fastest lap of Saturday’s Am division contest.
On Friday, Kris and John took the third place in wild rain showers with Wilson just missing the win in a nose to tail finish.
In the GT4 Sprint Am class, Terry, a two-time race winner from Fillmore, Utah, also fought the rain-soaked track Friday in his No. 59 Terry Trucking/Rearden Racing Aston Martin Vantage GT4 machine but took second in the 50-minute sprint event. Paul also clocked the fastest race lap Friday in the GT4 Sprint Am division.
On Saturday and Sunday, Terry piloted his mount to third in both 50-minute GT4 Sprint races to move him to second in the current GT4 Sprint Am point standings. In addition, Jeff Burton drove his No. 91 Burton Lumber/Rearden Racing Aston Martin Vantage GT4 car from the rear of the field to fourth on Sunday in GT4 Sprint Am after experiencing some issues in the early weekend races.
After a hardworking Rearden Racing crew repaired its Aston Martin Vantage on Saturday, Burton and co-driver Vesko Kozarov came back to finish sixth Sunday in the GT4 SprintX Pro-Am category at Road America.
The GT4 Sprint and SprintX highlights from Road America will be televised through the CBS Sports Network on Sept. 10 with Sprint action at 9 p.m. EDT and SprintX racing at 10 p.m. EDT.
