Steven Aghakhani and Jacob Eidson have claimed their first overall victory in Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America competition, following a costly pit lane penalty for Change Racing in Saturday’s second race of the weekend at Road America.
Aghakhani crossed the line 3.313 seconds behind the No. 16 Change Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo of Madison Snow, although Snow’s car received a five-second post-race penalty for not meeting the minimum pit stop time.
Snow emerged as the leader following the mid-race pit stop and driver change after a slow stop for the No. 6 US RaceTronics entry, reportedly due to the driver change from Jacob Eidson to Aghakhani.
The 17-year-old, who rejoined ten seconds behind Snow, however, began to quickly reel in the IMSA GT Daytona class veteran in the closing stages of the 50-minute contest.
Aghakhani needed to be within five seconds of Snow at the checkered flag to be declared race winners.
The No. 46 Precision Performance Motorsports Lamborghini of Brandon Gdovic completed the overall and Pro class podium in third.
Gdovic got by Stuart Middleton’s Prestige Performance/Wayne Taylor Racing entry for position in the closing stages of the race.
Corey Lewis and McKay Snow again scooped up Pro-Am class honors in their No. 63 Change entry, which finished fifth overall.
The No. 24 US RaceTronics Lamborghini of Leo Lamelas finished second in class.
Victor Gomez and Randy Sellari, meanwhile, swept the weekend in the Am and LB Cup classes, respectively.
As was the case on Friday, the second round of the season ran caution-free on the four-mile Wisconsin circuit.
