Portugal's Joao Barbosa led home an Action Express Racing 1-2 on the streets of Detroit Saturday night in the Chevrolet GRAND-AM 200, with teammate David Donohue in tow and helping to complete a dominant run for the Corvette Daytona Prototype team.

Ganassi Racing's Scott Pruett crossed the finish line in third, just 3.9 seconds behind Barbosa in his BMW-powered Riley.

The pole-sitting GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing team led initially, but was forced to settle for fourth. Ozz Negri was the first Ford-powered DP home in fifth.

“Sweeping both the Daytona Prototype and Grand Touring races at Belle Isle, in the shadow of its world headquarters, makes this a very special day for Chevrolet Racing,” said Jim Lutz, Chevrolet Grand-Am Program Manager. “Joao Barbosa and Darren Law both drove extremely well on a course that is not very forgiving, and they needed that effort in order to outpace their Action Express teammates, Terry Borcheller and David Donohue.”

The No. 9 Action Express Corvette DP led a race-high 21 of the 72 laps of the two-hour race.

“Winning at Detroit with the Corvette -- it can’t be better than this,” Barbosa said. “Being part of the Action Express crew, I have no words.”

“You know what? If I bit my nails I would have no nails left,” Law, who started, said about being a spectator at the end of the race. “I was going crazy, but Joao did a stellar job. I have to thank all the crew and Action Express and also to win this in Detroit in front of Chevy’s headquarters, this is unbelievable. I’m just super happy.”

Jon Fogarty and Alex Gurney started on the pole and led the first 19 laps, but a wreck while leaving pit road on lap 36 caused damage and left the No. 10 GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing Corvette DP with a 10th-place-in-class finish.

The No. 90 Spirit of Daytona Corvette DP, driven by Michael Valiante and Richard Westbrook, briefly led before it, too, was involved in a wreck that caused damage, leaving it with a ninth-in-class finish.

In GT, Le Mans-bound Jordan Taylor upheld GM's honor by adding an additional victory for its Chevrolet brand, piloting the Autohaus Motorsports Camaro GT.R to a 1.92-second win over Mazda's Jonathan Bomarito.
