Doran Racing's two Nissan 370Zs started third and fourth in Friday's Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge (CTSCC) race, and they finished in the exact same spots – although they swapped places and saw a lot of drama under the hot Texas sun during the 150-minute contest at Circuit of the Americas Friday.
The Doran Racing Nissan 370Z #14 of Brad Jaeger and B.J. Zacharias led half of Saturday's Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge race at VIRginia International Raceway, but the team didn't get the results they wanted when the two-and-a-half-hour race was decided by fuel mileage. There were no full-course cautions for 30 laps when the team needed one to save fuel, and although it had the two fastest cars in the 66-lap race, it ended up just two minutes/two laps short of a victory.
