For Immediate Release
Jeff Westphal notches up a second win for Scuderia Corsa in 2014, at none other than Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the capital of motorsport in the US. This is the second win of the year for Westphal and Scuderia Corsa in the United Sportscar Championship, North America’s premier sports car series.
“We knew it would be a tough race, Indy is so special and everyone would be pushing extra hard to take top honors at the Brickyard. Having said that, I am extremely proud of my team and my teammate, we faced adversity in practice and qualifying only to overcome and win at Indy, which makes it all the more sweet!” explained Jeff.
Jeff started the #63 Ferrari from 9th on the grid, only to advance the car up to the lead of the race before hour 1 of the race had passed for the fourth time this season. “I was able to do laps with used rubber that stood up to the best laptimes for most of the race, which allowed me to pass a handful of cars in my stint and catch the lead pack in the opening 30 minutes.” Said Jeff.
The United Sportscar Championship plays host to the top manufacturers duking it out on North American soil, Ferrari vs. Audi, BMW, Porsche, Aston Martin, Viper. Westphal drives the #63 Ferrari and will be headed to Road America August 10th, in Elkhart Lake Wisconsin. Follow Jeff and the team on Fox Sports one, or on one of the social channels;
