CORVETTE RACING IN CANADA: Garcia, Magnussen Reclaim GTLM Points Lead

Corvette Racing and the Corvette Daytona Prototype program each had days to remember Sunday in the Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix presented by Hawk Performance. Jan Magnussen and Antonio Garcia regained the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship's GT Le Mans Driver points lead while Jordan Taylor and Ricky Taylor led a 1-2 overall finish for the Corvette DP at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

Garcia and Magnussen drove their No. 3 Chevrolet Corvette C7.R to a third-place finish - a result that seemed unlikely in the race's opening half. The duo moved from seventh at the one-hour mark to the podium for the first time since the third race of the season at Long Beach.
