Danny Formal claimed his and teammate Kyle Marcelli’s second win at Watkins Glen International to sweep the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America weekend.

Jaden Conwright led the field to green from the pole position but was overtaken by Race 1 winner Marcelli in the No. 1 Prestige Performance with Wayne Taylor Racing machine.

Edoardo Piscopo and Patrick Kujala claimed second for O’Gara Motorsport/Change Racing/USRT in the No. 50 Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO2 after the pair made up places lost at the start.

Nelson Piquet Jr. came home on the final step of the overall podium.

Behind the leaders, Pro-Am entries Dario Capitano and Patrick Liddy each made up three positions on the opening lap, as Conwright slotted into fourth overall.

Marcelli elected to stop early in the mandatory pit stop window, handing the lead to Capitanio. With 25 minutes remaining, the top four drivers were all Pro-Am entries with their pro drivers behind the wheel ahead of their stops.

Out of the pits, the No. 1 Prestige/WTR Lamborghini regained control with Formal behind the wheel.

Liddy’s teammate, Damon Oakey briefly held onto second place before settling in sixth position as the Pro class cars behind charged through.

Oakey and Liddy claimed their first Pro-Am class victory of the season in the No. 8 O’Gara/Change/USRT entry.

The No. 47 Precision Performance Motorsports car of Sebastian Carazo and Bryan Ortiz finished second in class, while the No. 25 Wayne Taylor Racing Lamborghini of Ashton Harrison and Tom Long rounded out the top three in Pro-Am

In the Am category, Randy Sellari drove his way to a solo victory in the No. 3 Wayne Taylor Racing car. Jon Miller briefly made an appearance in the top-ten as the Am leader, but ultimately finished fifth in class.

Slade Stewart took victory in the LB Cup class after finishing runner-up in yesterday’s contest.

As it was in Race 1, a full course caution was brought out on the first lap with a spin at the Bus Stop chicane. The No. 46 PPM Lamborghini Bryson Lew was retired after he spun over the curbs, making contact with the barrier at corner exit.

A second yellow came out for the No. 7 Forty7 Motorsports car of Caleb Bacon, who spun and hit the wall before limping back to pit lane.

Almost simultaneously, Am class leader Shehan Chandrasoma pulled the No. 19 MCR Racing machine off track with a suspected mechanical issue. The race concluded behind the safety car.

RESULTS: Race 2
