Michael Levitas of Pikesville won the Gold Cup class of the IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge series today. Trailing by 12 seconds and taking second in the class was his teammate, Annapolis resident David Williams, who was in his first race on a street course.
Levitas and Williams are first and second in the class, respectively, and their team, TPC Racing, is atop the team standings. Levitas took ninth overall in the race, and Williams finished 10th.
The 17-year-old Madison Snow, a member of the Platinum Cup class, easily won the overall race. It was Snow’s fifth win of his second season in the Platinum Cup class of the Porsche series.
Snow ran away from the pack after the first half of the race, stretching three-second lead out to 4.9 seconds by the finish of the 27 laps.
Racers David Ostella and Brett Sandberg were locked in a race for second behind Snow until the final seconds of the race, at which point the bumpy Baltimore roads and some brief contact caused Sandberg to spin out. Sandberg finished fifth in the race after the wreck, being passed by Michael Mills and Craig Duerson.
Snow is the youngest racer in the series, and he continues to impress in his second season, as he racked up an additional 20 points to pad his lead against the field, which he now leads by 29 points.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
