Scott Pruett
Scott Pruett put another check on his victory list Sunday, taking advantage of sizzling conditions to post his first career victory at New Jersey Motorsports Park - one of only two circuits that the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series visits where he had never won.

Pruett and Rojas took their fifth triumph of the season in the No. 01 TELMEX BMW/Riley, taking another step toward a second consecutive Daytona Prototype championship in front of the largest crowd for a GRAND-AM event in the four years the series raced at the circuit.

Max Angelelli passed Alex Gurney in the closing laps to take second in the No. 10 SunTrust Chevrolet/Dallara started from the pole by Ricky Taylor. Gurney held on to finish third in the No. 99 GAINSCO Auto Insurance Chevrolet/Riley co-driven by Jon Fogarty.

In a change from the TELMEX Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates strategy for the sprint races on the Rolex Series schedule, Pruett both started and finished the event, with Rojas driving the middle hour. Pruett rebounded from a drive-through penalty early in the race when he spun out Taylor while battling for the lead. Taylor led the opening 36 circuits before the contact.

Pruett took the lead for the first time with less than one hour remaining when Angelelli pitted on lap 99. He led the final 19 circuits to score his 36th DP victory, sharing 23 of them with Rojas.

In the production-based GT class, Mazda scored a podium sweep led by Sylvain Tremblay and Jonathan Bomarito in the No. 70 Mazdaspeed/Castrol Edge Mazda RX-8. Unlike last year - when SpeedSource cars took the top three positions, three different teams finished on the GT podium as the marquee took its first victory of the season.

Bomarito took the checkered flag .685 seconds ahead of John Edwards, who won the pole in the No. 42 TheRaceSite.com Mazda RX-8 he shared with Wayne Nonnamaker. James Gue and Dane Cameron took third in the No. 41 Dempsey Racing Mazda RX-8.

Jordan Taylor and Bill Lester finished fourth in the No. 88 Autohaus Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro, narrowing the gap in the point standings to one point behind Brumos Racing teammates Andrew Davis and Leh Keen with three races remaining. The championship-leading No. 59 Porsche GT3 was never a factor, going several laps down in the early going with a thrown alternator belt.

The Surprises

Antonio Garcia and Paul Edwards finished a season-best seventh in the No. 90 Spirit of Daytona Chevrolet/Coyote after Garcia led 15 laps in the early going.
Ryan Dalziel finished fourth for the third consecutive event, moving to the Starworks Motorsport No. 7 Ford/Riley with new co-driver Raphael Matos.
JC France, Terry Borcheller and Joao Barbosa finished fifth in the No. 9 Action Express Racing Porsche/Riley, their best finish since winning at Virginia International Raceway in April.
Dane Cameron and James Gue finished a season-best third in the No. 41 Dempsey Racing/Team Seattle Mazda RX-8.
Boris Said and Eric Curran combined to lead 37 laps in the No. 31 Whelen Engineering Corvette and were in contention to give the team its second GT victory of the season before being sidelined after contact with Charles Espenlaub in the No. 40 Visit Florida Mazda RX-8.
