Victory for No. 80 ACS Manufacturing/Lone Star Racing Mercedes-AMG GT3 Team Sunday in Pirelli World Challenge SprintX Race at VIR with Mike Skeen and Scott Heckert


DANVILLE, Virginia – After just missing the pole in qualifying and being hit with a hard-to-take penalty Saturday at the start of this past weekend’s first Pirelli World Challenge SprintX GT race at VIRginia International Raceway (VIR), the No. 80 ACS Manufacturing/Lone Star Racing Mercedes-AMG GT3 team went into Sunday’s final race determined to score a victory.

When the checkered flag waved, the No. 80 team, and co-drivers Mike Skeen and Scott Heckert, accomplished exactly that, combining impeccable pre-race preparation, a perfect pit stop and flawless driving for the team’s first win of the 2018 season.

“This win is truly a credit to the team and how hard they’ve worked,” Heckert said. “The car was flawless, our pit stop was right at the target time and we had great strategy. My goal was to pick up a few spots and chase down the leaders as best I could. I had a lot of confidence that Mike could get the job done from there, and he did just that.”
