Stu started 14th but close enough...... Yeah cant wait to see them at Mid-Ohio.

Also.......If you watched the race that cam on after the world challenge.........liddell did the same move to block at the very end of the race , but the car that he blocked got ran off. seems kinda funny......

Good day for Hayner ends in 11th place.

Braselton, Ga. – April 17, 2005 The #5 GMAC Commercial Finance / Trenton Forging GTO, driven by Stu Hayner, finished in 11th place after starting in 14th in the SCCA Pro Racing SPEED World Challenge GT race. The series is running as part of the Sportsbook.com Grand Prix at Road Atlanta, in Braselton, Ga., April 15-17. The race ran at 8:55am EST and aired on SPEED Channel same-day tape delay at 1pm.

“We needed a run like this,” commented Hayner after the race. “We finally got to see what the car would do after pushing it hard for a full 50 minute race. We’ve got some balance issues to sort out and need to take a look at the brakes and tire-wear… but these are the things we needed to learn. We can improve from this.”

Hayner ran has high as eighth during the race.

congrats to the whole team ! they got a little more t.v. time than they did in the st pete race , with one comment on the team getting better . i thought for sure they were looking at a top ten going into the last couple of laps , i believe within the last 5 or 6 laps they were up to ninth ! but hey 11th is not bad , atleast they are improving in each race . also when are they starting the second car ! mid ohio ? for those that missed it , replay is on tuesday 4;30 or 5:30 p.m. i missed the first 30 minutes so i'll be watching .

If you seen the end of the race. Stu was in 8th place, and I think got spun out or caught in lap traffic and ended up in 11th.

I was glad to see Greg and Dorsey make some good comments about Stu and the GTO. Seeing the car do well was fun.

I predict a top five finish by the end of the season...
