***Former Lamborghini junior driver Jeroen Mul has been late addition to the No. 16 Change Racing Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo, which he will share with Pro championship contender Stevan McAleer. McAleer drove solo at the most recent event at Virginia International Raceway prior to kicking off the season with Madison Snow at Circuit of The Americas.

***In another late adjustment, ANSA Motorsports’ entry of Nelson Piquet Jr. has changed car numbers from No. 13 to No. 33.

***McAleer entered the weekend with a 15-point deficit to Dream Racing Motorsport’s Richard Antinucci prior to Friday’s opening race of the weekend, which saw Antinucci notch his fourth win of the season.

***Kyle Marcelli escaped serious injury following a heavy accident in the early stages of Race 1 in his No. 1 Prestige Performance by Wayne Taylor Racing Lamborghini. Team manager Travis Houge told Sportscar365 that while they’ve looked at their options, it’s unlikely Marcelli and co-driver Danny Formal will take part in Race 2 today.

***The No. 6 O’Gara Motorsport/USRT Lamborghini of Steven Aghakhani and Jacob Eidson has been repaired following Eidson’s late exit from Friday’s race caused by a tire issue. The incident denied the duo an overall podium finish.

***TPC Racing is borrowing a spare chassis from Wayne Taylor Racing following an accident for the Scott Schmidt and Trevor Andrusko-driven No. 38 entry at VIR earlier this month that had initially put the duo’s participation this weekend in doubt.

“We have to thank Wayne Taylor Racing for helping us out in a big way this week at Watkins Glen,” said TPC’s director of race operations Harris Levitas said. “Our Lamborghini is stripped down to a bare chassis right now to be repaired, so Scott and Trevor are going to drive a back-up car that WTR owns.”

***Levitas said it’s a “true collaboration” between the WTR ad TPC crews this weekend.

***Change Racing’s Alan Metni is pulling double duty this weekend between Super Trofeo and Porsche Carrera Cup North America presented by The Cayman Islands, where he entered the event undefeated in the Pro-Am class with Kelly-Moss Road & Race.

***Kelly-Moss and TPC Racing also have entries in both of the IMSA-sanctioned single-make series, which are running in support of the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race this weekend.

***“The Pursuit of Speed,” a full-length documentary movie focusing on Steven Aghakhani’s 2020 Lamborghini Super Trofeo season, will premiere in a private red-carpet screening in Los Angeles on July 10. The film by Jeffrey John Hart focuses on both the driver/team director and father-and-son relationship between Steven and his father, Armik Aghakhani, while taking an inside look at what it takes to pursue a major sports car racing championship.

***The first batch of recently announced Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo2 cars are expected to reach U.S. shores by October according to Chris Ward, Senior Manager, Motorsport for Automobili Lamborghini America.

***Ward told Sportscar365 they’ve already received more than 30 orders for brand-new cars for the 2022 season in North America.

***Watch the second and final Super Trofeo North America race of the weekend today at 10:40 a.m. ET, with live coverage on, Trackpass on NBC Sports Gold and IMSA Radio’s Brian Till and Jeremey Shaw will provide commentary.
