BRASELTON, Ga. – Tim Minor stalked Kyle Connery for 16 laps and then passed him on a green-white-checkered restart in turn one to take his third win in a row and first at Road Atlanta in race one of the doubleheader F2000 Championship Series weekend.

Connery would finish second, bagging valuable bonus points for pole position and the fastest lap of the race. David Grant scored his first F2000 podium in third place.

“Our cars were very evenly matched today,” said Minor, who is off to a great start to the season, winning all three events thus far “With the restart I kind of just went with it and looked forward, it was clean racing into turn one.”

Minor went on to thank his Ski Motorsports crew in victory circle, who put in a long day on Thursday fixing a suspension pick-up point on the No. 88 Citation chassis. The Masters Class veteran adds a couple of points to his Championship lead over the No. 91 of Connery.

Connery, furthermore, edged closer to returning to the top step of the podium – a place he hasn’t visited since October of 2011. That year marked six race wins for the then-rookie before a challenging year in 2012 developing another chassis.

“It was our race to lose today,” explained Connery. “Tim and I had a great battle for the entire race and if it had stayed green it probably would have been ours. It was a great fight and that’s why I’m in the F2000 Championship Series.”
