As the season hit its halfway mark, the Grand Am Cup series headed to the Mid Ohio Sports Car Course for round five of the ten race endurance series. As well as the halfway point of the season, the Mid Ohio race acts as a home track for four of the teams competing in the C2K Class (HART, Planet Earth Motorsports, Lucas Motorsports, and Baglieracing).
At the start of the race, the pole sitting #42 Comptech Sport Planet Earth Motorsports Acura Integra GS-R of Mike Fitzgerald took the lead for the first hour of the race. For the first several laps, Fitzgerald was followed by his teammate, the #41 Comptech Sport Integra of Wayne Nonnamaker. An electrical glitch dropped the #41 Integra back from the top three in class after several laps unfortunately.
At the caution period, the #42 Comptech Sport Integra and the #69 HART Civic both pitted for regular service and a driver's change. Under the yellow though, the #42 Integra was lucky enough to be in front of the overall leader, and therefore was waved by the pace car under caution to be on a lap of his own in the C2K Class. Will Nonnamaker, who was finishing the #42 Integra, knew that all he had to do now was just bring the car home to the end of the race.
As the #42 Integra was cruising to the victory, the action was still intense behind him. The #69 HART Civic had been taken over by Pete Halsmer and was running second, and John Schmitt had given controls of the #00 HART Civic to Kevin Adams who was now running third.
