Riley Dickinson completed a clean sweep of the opening two rounds of the Porsche Deluxe Carrera Cup North America season with his flag-to-flag victory in Race 2 at Sebring International Raceway.

The Texan dominated the weekend in his No. 53 Kellymoss Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car, leading both practice sessions and claiming two pole positions which he converted into pair of race wins with the fastest lap in each to wrap up the perfect weekend.

Dickinson once again leapt away from the green flag to an early advantage over his fellow Pro class competitors.

He crossed the finish line with a 4.952-second edge over McElrea Racing’s Tom Sargent, who finished second.

Jason Hart took his No. 20 MDK Motorsports to the final step of the overall podium, with Will Martin (JDX Racing) and Dan Clarke (Nolasport) rounding out the top-five in Pro.

Battles in Pro-Am and Am were less straightforward, as leaders in both classes were taken out of contention over the course of the 40-minute contest.

Marco Cirone passed Pro-Am pole-sitter Efrin Castro on Lap 1 to hold an early advantage in class but would be later spun by the Dominican driver in Turn 10.

Cirone rejoined the field in fifth, while Castro took the Pro-Am lead in his No. 65 Kellymoss Porsche.

While Castro crossed the finish line first in class, he was handed a 38-second post-race time penalty, dropping him to fifth position in class and handing the win to Kellymoss’ Alan Metni.

The No. 3 Topp Racing Porsche of Jess Mosing was subsequently promoted to second, while ACI Motorsports’ Moisey Uretsky came home in third.

Two Am class front runners retired from the race early as pole-sitter Scott Noble lost control of his No. 10 MDK Porsche over the bumps in the final corner, spinning into the path of John Goetz, who was running second in class.

Having started third in Am, Mark Kvamme emerged unscathed and inherited the class lead. He remained out of trouble to take the checkered flag and deliver MDK the Am class win.

Multiple incidents are being investigated after the race, including the collision between Castro and Cirone.

Sabre Cook was also handed a ten-second time penalty post-race for contact with the No. 4 of Elias De La Torre, dropping her to 16th overall.
