***A total of 15 Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America entries are set for this weekend’s pair of races, with the No. 33 US RaceTronics entry of John Hennessey having been withdrawn due to an “urgent family commitment”.

***Hennessey made his series debut last time out at Road America, collecting a pair of second place finishes in LB Cup.

***Madison Snow and the US RaceTronics pairing of Steven Aghakhani and Jacob Eidson headed into the weekend tied for the points lead, although poles for both Race 1 and 2 for the No. 6 team have put them with a provisional two-point lead over the Change Racing driver.

***Snow is driving solo this weekend after teaming up with Bryan Sellers at Road America. Sellers told Sportscar365 that he has elected to put his entire focus with Paul Miller Racing’s IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship effort, which returns this weekend after missing several races.

***Accidents for both the No. 87 Prestige Performance/Wayne Taylor Racing Lamborghini of Sydney McKee and sister No. 25 entry of Ashton Harrison in qualifying on Saturday morning have put questions into the two car’s participation for the pair of 50-minute races.

***McKee had an off in Turn 6 in Q1 while Harrison crashed in Turn 10 in the closing stage of Q2, which was shown the checkered flag three minutes early.

***IMSA Prototype Challenge veteran Lance Willsey is making his Super Trofeo debut as part of Wayne Taylor Racing’s expanded four-car effort this weekend. “I would like to thank everyone at Wayne Taylor Racing as well as Chris Ward at Lamborghini for this opportunity,” he said.

***Willsey and fellow WTR driver Stevan McAleer will be pulling double duty between Super Trofeo and IPC this weekend, with Willsey entered in the No. 33 Sean Creech Motorsport Ligier JS P3 Nissan and McAleer in Robillard Racing’s Norma M30 Nissan for Sunday’s 1 hour and 45-minute prototype race.

***Madison Snow is another double-duty driver, competing in the Michelin GT Challenge WeatherTech Championship race later today in Paul Miller’s Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo.

***TPC Racing, meanwhile, will have cars entered in both Super Trofeo and Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama, with the Mike Levitas-owned team making its Super Trofeo debut this weekend.

“We couldn’t have done this without Lamborghini Sterling, right down the road from our headquarters, and the entire team at Lamborghini Squadra Corse,” said Harris Levitas, the team’s director of race operations.

***Brandon Gdovic has been a busy driver, having taken part in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at the Daytona International Speedway road course last weekend. While having run inside the top-15, Gdovic ended up finishing 28th after an incident. 

***Race 1 of the weekend gets underway at 5:10 p.m.. ET, while Race 2 is set for Sunday at 12:55 p.m. Both will be streamed live on featuring commentary from IMSA Radio’s Brian Till and Jeremy Shaw.
