A brief race recap (Porsche)

MONTEREY, Calif., Saturday, May 12, 2012 –  What began as a “clean and green” beginning for the second round of the IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge by Yokohama doubleheader at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, rapidly turned into a dogfight that culminated in a five-car incident just before the checkered flag fell on the weather-shortened 40-lap race today.

And while foggy, inclement weather may have affected the day’s start, the subsequent “Snow storm” that ensued at the end was a welcome one.  Sixteen-year-old Madison Snow and his mother Melanie swept under the checkers this morning to take the victories in the Platinum and Gold Classes respectively, which certainly seemed like a fitting way to celebrate Mother’s Day weekend in the Snow family.
