04/07/2008 - Krohn Racing on Podium at Brumos Porsche 250 at Daytona

Brumos Daytona 250

The Krohn Racing team showed that their hard work and persistence with the development of the new Proto-Auto Lola is paying off, as the team celebrated a podium finish in the Brumos Porsche 250 at Daytona International Speedway. Round eighth of the 2008 Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series was the second podium finish for the Krohn team, both third-place finishes. Nic Jönsson and Ricardo Zonta drove their No. 76 Krohn Racing Pontiac Riley from the 13th starting position to third place. Team owner/driver Tracy Krohn and Eric van de Poele started 17th and finished 14th after a 60-second penalty for running over their sister car's air hose cost them time which they could never recover during the 70-lap, two-hour and 25 minute race.

Eric van de Poele, driver, No. 75 Krohn Racing Pontiac Lola:“The car didn't quite have the performance we were looking for this week, but we did find a little more speed before the start of the race. We had an unfortunate incident of receiving a penalty for running over the other car's (No. 75 Krohn Racing Pontiac Lola) air hose when we both pitted at the same time. After the 60-second penalty, we were finished. It was too long of a penalty to be able to recover.”
