Vilarino Gets Revenge In Spain
VALENCIA, Spain — Ander Vilarino took his revenge after a difficult Saturday race by winning the second ELITE 1 race of the Valencia NASCAR Fest ahead of fellow countryman Borja Garcia and Bert Longin Sunday afternoon.
This is his 14th career NASCAR win.
The two-time champion started from the pole and drove away after an early restart, but the local hero Garcia managed to keep him in sight and crossed the finish line 2.4 seconds behind him, edging a very consistent Longin, who obtained his second podium finish of the weekend.
Anthony Kumpen came home fourth leading to an all PK Carsport tie at top of the standings and marking a very strong debut for the Belgian team. Kumpen edged Frederic Gabillon by just .110 seconds in a close sprint to the finish line.
Saturday winner Yann Zimmer couldn’t defend the points lead due to a late retirement in today’s race.
