Lally Takes Checkered Flag in Season Debut at Watkins Glen International

Lally Takes Checkered Flag in Season Debut at Watkins Glen International

In his first start of the season, Andy Lally won Round 3 of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America series at Watkins Glen International.

Sports car veteran Lally joined the series last season for the final two rounds at Road Atlanta and made his return this weekend for Change Racing in the No. 99 Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo representing Lamborghini Carolinas, capturing a victory by .745 of a second over Richard Antinucci.

"This was a lot of fun!" Lally said. "These cars are pretty wild, and this was a blast. I had a lot of pressure from (Edoardo) Piscopo and then Antinucci at the end. I had an incident coming into the apex of Turn 9, and I had to rim-shot the corner and he (Antinucci) gained a bunch of time on me, but I was able to hold on. It was a really good time."

After starting second behind Edoardo Piscopo, Lally took the lead when Piscopo made his mandatory pit stop and never relinquished it.
