What an amazing event. This was the first official race we have entered since we began our relationship with Toyo Tires,” said Law. “We spent this entire season working with Toyo on the development of their racing slick and the tires were phenomenal all race; we had no issues. Obviously doing a race like this isn’t anything new for Flying Lizard Motorsports, the drivers did a great job and we brought the car home in perfect condition. It was a challenging race, we had rain, we had dry, it was dark for almost 14 hours and the closing speeds between all of the different classes was big. The priority for us was to just run a consistent pace and stay out of trouble. To come home with not only a class win, but a win overall was everything we could have wanted. We are looking forward to continuing this relationship and defending our win next season."
“It was good to be back under the Flying Lizard umbrella for this race. I’m very impressed by Toyo. When Darren (Law) called and asked if I wanted to do this thing, you never know about tire programs and how they’re going to go. However, I have to say, it completely blew me away,” said van Overbeek. “We didn’t have a single puncture. The performance was great, the balance was great. The rain tires were unbelievable. We had a little bit of everything to try with these tires and they always came out on top. Hats off to Toyo Tires for delivering a really good tire. Hats off to Flying Lizard for putting together yet another race winning car.”
