    BMW Drivers Post Strong Finishes at Kansas Speedway;
    Pruett/Rojas Second in DP, Borcheller/LaMarra Take ST Point Lead

    Woodcliff Lake, NJ – Aug. 17, 2013 Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas continued to fight for a fourth consecutive GRAND-AM Daytona Prototype driver’s championship by posting a runner up finish at Saturday’s inaugural Rolex Sports Car Series race at the Kansas Speedway. With three top-five finishes in the last three races, the CGRFS duo has moved to sixth in the standings. With only five points separating the top-six positions in the championship, Pruett and Rojas join Starworks Motorsports co-drivers Ryan Dalziel and Alex Popow as the top BMW-powered drivers in the title battle.

    Coming to Kansas, Starworks Motorsport had won the two previous races at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Road America, but had a disappointing evening in the Sunflower State. Brickyard Grand Prix winners Ryan Dalziel and Alex Popow finished 11th in the No. 2 BMW Riley and dropped to third in driver points. Teammates Brendon Hartley and Scott Mayer, winners at Road America, finished sixth in the No. 8 machine.

    Team Sahlen equaled their performance in Detroit by posting a double top-10 finish with the No. 42 BMW Riley (seventh) and the No. 43 BMW Riley (tenth).
