Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada (10 July 2016) – Hoping for another big result following a podium run at Watkins Glen last weekend, Michael Shank Racing with Curb/Agajanian faced frustration at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park on Sunday as the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship staged Round 7 of the 2016 championship.
After showing well in practice and posting the second-fastest time in theSunday morning warm up, a combination of unfortunate events saw John Pew and Ozz Negri finish sixth in the Mobil 1 Sportscar Grand Prix.
Pew started the race from the fourth row after qualifying the No. 60 Honda-Ligier seventh on Saturday. When the green flag flew for the 2 hour, 40 minute race, he worked to stay with the lead group of prototypes and traffic was a key element as the prototype class encountered the three other slower classes of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship just seven minutes into the race.
