Opening Races of the Weekend Majors Doubleheader Checkered at Mid-Ohio

LEXINGTON, Ohio (May 30, 2015) – Rain showers threatened throughout the day on Saturday, but only affected one race of the U.S. Majors Tour Northern Conference Round Three and Northeastern Conference Round Five race at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

A quality turnout represented drivers from 27 Runoffs-eligible classes who took to the 15-turn, 2.4-mile circuit to complete 25-minute sprint races. The aforementioned rain was a brief shower that occurred during the middle laps of the Production and GT-Lite races. The rain fell for less than five minutes and was gone as quickly as it came. Sunshine followed and completely dried the course before the race was complete.
