After crashing out of the lead in the closing moments of Saturday’s race, Bret Curtis bounced back to claim victory in the second GT America powered by AWS round of the weekend on the streets of Nashville.
Curtis took his No. 62 Scuderia Corsa Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo 2020 to top overall honors in the 40-minute scheduled race, which ended under a full course caution due to an accident by the No. 26 Prive Motorsports/ Topp Racing McLaren 570S GT4 of Thomas Surgent.
Having started from pole, Curtis took the early lead ahead of a four-wide move triggered by the No. 191 Rearden Racing Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo of Jeff Burton, which forced both the No. 14 GMG Racing Audi R8 LMS ultra of James Sofronas and Charlie Luck’s No. 45 Wright Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 R into the run-off area.
A heavy crash for the No. 8 GMG Audi R8 LMS GT2 of Elias Sabo moments later brought out the first caution, with the field restarting with 17 minutes to go prior to the race-ending yellow with ten minutes left on the clock.
The No. 27 Audi of Jason Daskalos finished second overall, with Burton taking another overall podium and Masters class win in his Rearden Lamborghini.
George Kurtz in the No. 04 DXDT Mercedes-AMG GT3 Evo and Sofronas, who charged back from 20th after the first corner incident, completed the top-five overall.
GT4 class honors went to the No. 39 RENNtech Mercedes-AMG GT4 of Chris Cagnazzi, who finished ahead of Race 1 class winner Alex Welch in the No. 76 ROTR Motorsport Audi R8 LMS GT4.
RESULTS: Race 2
