A brief race recap

16-year-old rookie driver Tristan Nunez continued the 2012 Cooper Tires Prototype Lites Powered by Mazda season with a double-header weekend at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.  Nunez ran flag-to-flag in both races to capture the wins from the pole positions and increase his 2012 IMSA Lites season total to five victories in only six races.

The first race of the third event weekend in the 2012 IMSA Lites season took place on Fri., May 11 where Nunez ran well in the lead for the 30-minute race to earn his fourth career win. Starting from the pole position, Nunez was able to run very few green laps, as there were several cautions, but he finished 2.821 seconds ahead of the second-place competitor.

The second IMSA Lites race in support of the American Le Mans Monterey Presented by Patron race event was slightly delayed when the morning started off with severe fog over the racetrack. Due to the delay in the schedule, the race was shortened from its original time of 45-minutes in length to 40-minutes. Regardless of the change, Nunez still dominated the entirety of the race keeping at least a three-second lead over the field at all times.
