At The Glen (Yet)
The Thursday practice sessions at Watkins Glen were both cancelled
– following an injunction granted to Krohn Racing and Colin
Braun by New York State Supreme Court Judge Judith O’Shea.

have filed an appeal, which will be heard this morning (Friday).
A decision is expected by midday on Friday.
“It is important to point out that Krohn Racing and Colin
Braun are well within their rights to take this action,” said
Grand American President Roger Edmondson. “It is also unfortunate
that the rest of our Daytona Prototype teams must wait until Friday
for a decision on the status of their event. However, we must respect
both the decision of the court as well as our race promoter, and
are prepared to alter our plans if necessary.”
There is an alternative plan being put together, if Saturday’s
race cannot be held.
