Rookie Corey LaJoie Wins Career-First ARCA Race at Chicagoland Speedway JOLIET, IL (July 21, 2013) - Corey LaJoie led when it counted, winning the Ansell ActivArmr 150 at Chicagoland Speedway in just his second career ARCA start. LaJoie passed the leaders just before taking the white flag and sailed to his biggest career win. LaJoie, driving the Eibach Springs equipped No. 17 Roulo Brothers Ford, led 36 of the first 52 laps. His team decided to pit on lap 80 for fuel and two tires, a strategy that worked in his favor. "With about 20 to go, Harold Holly (crew chief) said we were going to come in for fuel and tires and see if we can out smart them a little bit," LaJoie said. "I came in to get tires. After that it was just all-out racing." The 100-lap, 150-mile race took just under 1 hour and 10 minutes to complete. 

North American Endurance Championship (NAEC) -
Stevenson Motorsports Wins North American Endurance Championship
 INDIANAPOLIS, IN (July 26, 2013) — It was a big day at the Brickyard for Stevenson Motorsports and Eibach Springs as drivers Robin Liddell and John Edwards combined to score second in the Eibach Springs equipped No. 57 Camaro at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. While a run to second wasn't what the team had been targeting, it still brought with it a huge reward as Stevenson Motorsports won the 2013 North American Endurance Championship (NAEC) title. Liddell opened the race from the second position and wasted no time in moving forward as he took over the point on Lap two as he chased the leader into Turn one. He led a race-high 24 laps until the team's first pit stop about 50 minutes into the race. Shrewd strategy from the team saw Liddell called to pit lane just before a full course caution was displayed for a stalled car on course. Liddell dove into the pits to gain track position as the rest of the field pitted under the yellow and restarted fifth in the order. The team took advantage of the next full course caution which was displayed with 1 hour and 20 minutes complete and brought Liddell to pit road for a driver change and only three tires to gain track position once again. Another great stop by the Stevenson crew saw Edwards strap into the No. 57 Camaro and emerge from pit lane in fifth. The Stevenson squad made its last pit stop with about 50 minutes to go under green for four tires and fuel, as the final stop for the No. 61 saw the team take advantage, as they needed less fuel and took no tires. But a strong run from Edwards in the final stages of the race saw him run among the top-five and move his way up the order to take second at the checkered flag and claim the NAEC title. The team has scored eight podiums and five victories so far in GRAND-AM competition, and the Rolex GT effort is now just four points shy of the championship lead.

 INDIANAPOLIS, IN (July 26, 2013) — Bryan Sellers and Mark Boden crossed the famed finish line at the 'Yard of Bricks' in first place of the Continental Tires Sports Car Challenge (CTSCC) series race, making it two in a row for the Fall-Line Motorsports pair. Boden drove the first stint in the Eibach Springs equipped #46 Fall-Line Motorsports BMW after starting 13th. He drove a long stint- over an hour- and handed over the reigns to Sellers in 11th position. The #46 car's strategy worked out perfectly, and the extensive caution periods played into their hands making the race on only one stop. In typical Bryan Sellers form, he drove his BMW to the front, taking the lead and then holding off a challenge for several laps. The two were in a tight battle, just a few tenths separating the two, but ultimately the race ended under full course caution. Sellers led his third race in a row in the CTSCC series, and wins his second race in a row following the duo's first victory at Watkins Glen just weeks prior. Boden now moves into 6th in overall standings.
