Driving the No. 9 Action Express Racing Corvette DP, Joao Barbosa held off Alex Gurney in the No. 99 GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing Corvette DP to take the win and give Chevrolet a one-two finish on July 1, 2012, in the Rolex Sports Car Series at Watkins Glen International. In a thrilling finish to capture the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen, Barbosa caught Gurney in traffic with 20 minutes remaining and used lapped cars to his advantage throughout the stretch run, to take the victory by a slim .238 seconds.
It was the second victory of the campaign for Barbosa and teammate Darren Law, while Gurney and teammate Jon Fogarty remain in the hunt for their first victory of the year.
Next stop on the Road Racing tour will be its inaugural visit to Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 27, 2012.
