Richard Antinucci and Corey Lewis have claimed a sweep of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America weekend at Watkins Glen, with the Change Racing duo taking another controlling victory in Race 2 on Saturday.

Antinucci drove his No. 29 Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO to a 3.420-second win over the No. 27 Dream Racing Lamborghini of Paolo Ruberti and Cedric Sbirrazzuoli, who led early rom pole.

Lewis ran third in the opening stages of the 50-minute race, prior to the mandatory pit stop, which saw Antinucci leapfrog to the lead.

The No. 1 Prestige Performance/Wayne Taylor Racing entry of Andrea Amici and Sandy Mitchell completed the overall and Pro class podium in third after an intense late-race charge by Amici, who pressured Ruberti for position.

Pro-Am class honors went to the No. 09 US RaceTronics entry of Damon Ockey and Jake Eidson, who finished runner-up in Friday’s race.

Edison finished fifth overall, behind the No. 46 PPM Lamborghini of Brandon Gdovic and Conor Daly, who were unable to continue their streak of podium finishes.

Supercross star Chad Reed and co-driver Ryan Hardwick came home second in class, improving on their third place class finish in the No. 22 Dream Racing Lamborghini on Friday.

Steven Aghakhani claimed a sweep of the weekend in the Am class, with the 16-year-old finishing 6th overall in his US RaceTronics Lamborghini.

Aghakhani overcame an early race incident with Paul Tracy to finish ahead of the No. 33 Prestige/WTR entry of Cameron Cassels, who came home second in class.

McKay Snow, who had led the opening laps, ended up crashing out in the early stages, resulting in the race’s only full course caution.

LB Cup honors, meanwhile, went to the No. 08 GMG Racing Lamborghini of Mel Johnson.

RESULTS: Race 2
