Wins LMP2 Class at Rolex 24
IMSA
January 27, 2019
The No. 18 DragonSpeed Oreca of Saavedra, Pastor Maldonado, Roberto Gonzalez and Ryan Cullen picked up LMP2 class honors in the Rolex 24, despite the Colombian's accident that indirectly led to the race-ending red, sportscar365.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Fortunately for Saavedra and his teammates, he had a four-lap lead on the second-place team in the LMP2 class when he crashed. There were only four entries in this class, so competition was limited. The red flag would mark the final action of this 24-hour race, and would give DragonSpeed's No. 18 team the class victory.
