Kenton Koch has scored a weekend sweep in the IMSA Prototype Challenge presented by Mazda series at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, after taking another dominant win in Race 2 on Sunday.

The P1 Motorsports driver outran the No. 14 Kelly-Moss Road and Race Norma M30 of Colin Thompson by 12.847 seconds to score his third win of the season in his No. 8 P1 Motorsports Ligier JS P3.

As was the case on Saturday, Koch led flag-to-flag, but in a much less eventful race, which only saw a single full-course caution for a spin by a MPC car on the opening lap.

Kyle Masson collected his seventh class win in eight races in the MPC class, finishing third overall in the No. 18 Performance Tech Motorsports Elan DP02.

Masson finished more than 15 seconds ahead of the No. 3 Extreme Speed Motorsports Ligier of Naj Husain, who came home fourth overall and took LMP3 Masters class honors.

A late-race spin by the No. 31 Eurosport Racing MPC entry of Michal Chlumecky knocked him out of the MPC Masters class lead and handed the win to Jon Brownson in the sister No. 34 Eurosport Elan. 

Television coverage of the CTMP weekend will air July 27 at 8 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 2.

RESULTS: Race 2
