Faulkner, Rabe Score First Continental Tire Challenge Win In ST After Penalty
No. 21 Bodymotion Racing Porsche Cayman co-drivers Max Faulkner and Jason Rabe took their first Continental Tire Challenge race victory when the No. 52 MINI JCW Team entry co-driven by Colin Mullan and Mark Pombo that crossed the finish line first in class was penalized due to a technical infraction.
Post-race technical inspection revealed that the No. 52 exceeded maximum boost pressure and was moved to last in class.

The No. 81 team was elevated to third post-race when the No. 37 MINI shared by Nate Norenberg and Derek Jones encountered a drive-time infraction and then moved to second following the penalty to the No. 52.
Mat Pombo and Mike LaMarra wound up third in the No. 73 MINI JCW entry. Galante and Jones are now 13 points ahead of Mat Pombo and LaMarra, 257-244.
