FOUR TOP-TEN RESULTS FOR ALLIANCE RACING AT WATKINS GLEN

Share this Post

It was the first trip to Watkins Glen International for Alliance Racing as they battled the ultra-competitive Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America program. Entering four drivers in a pair of cars, Cole Kleck and Al Morey IV raced alongside André Lagartixa and Robert Soroka and earned a quartet of top-ten results, including a P5 finish for Morey and Kleck.

“After winning a few events ago, we have been hungry to repeat that success so weekends like this make it difficult,” explained Alliance Racing’s Toney Edwards. “Leaving with a top-five result and four top-ten finishes is good, but we strive for perfection.”

A pair of qualifying sessions would set the grid for races one and two with Morey and Kleck leading the way for the team. Earning a third-place starting position for race one, it was a P8 effort for race two. André Lagartixa and Robert Soroka placed their Lamborghini inside the top-ten with ninth and tenth-place results.

The first wheel-to-wheel racing of the weekend saw Lagartixa and Soroka score the team-best finish, crossing the line eighth as the #28 car of Morey and Kelck ran into some issues relegating them down the running order to a tenth-place result. Back to the track for race two, Morey and Kleck rebounded to drive their way forward to finish fifth on track, while Lagartixa and Soroka put their car inside the top-ten in ninth.

Edwards continued, “We have a two-month gap in our schedule now that allows us to regroup and refocus as we work hard to get back to the top step of the podium.”

The next stop for Alliance Racing will be a trip to Austin, Texas and the famed Circuit of the Americas over the August 31 to September 1 weekend. Stay tuned to the Alliance Racing social media pages for news, information, photos, and results throughout the rest of the season.
