    Default GrandAm Cup - Homestead Miami

    The GrandAm Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge is at Homestead-Miami Speedway this weekend. Figured I would make a thread for us to chat & follow Billy, Craig S, etc!

    Billy was fastest in P1 and P2!

    I do believe he has improved a lot over the last season with some good coaching

    Congrats to them, hopefully the car holds together for this one. Race at 1:15Eastern time tomorrow.

    Got some bad news, looks like they'll be starting at the back of the field. I'll let Billy explain details because I dont know much beyond that.

    What happened?!?! Justice would be served if he still finished first by passing everyone and lapping a few.

    Original fast qualifier Jack Roush Jr., seeking his first pole position, had his time for the No. 61 ROUSH Performance Products Ford Mustang GT disallowed after officials found an unapproved part on the car.

    Off the press comments on the series. They do not say which part it was.

    Like Oli said, maybe carpet padding?????

    Yeah no kidding. Rarely in GAC do you see one car fastest in P1, P2, and Quali.
