Ladder Series: Allmendinger leads flag-to-flag at Lime Rock Barber Dodge Pro Series championship leader A.J. Allmendinger converted his pole position into a win at the Lime Rock Park Grand Prix presented by Mohegan Sun. Marc Breuers in the Sunoco Special and Rafael Sperafico driving the Barber-CART Rookie of the Year Scholarship Dodge-liveried Reynard joined Allmendinger on the podium, with Nilton Rossoni and Julio Campos rounding out the top five in Monday’s race. Starting from the pole, A.J.

Allmendinger ‘s biggest concern before the race was that the start of the race would give his competition a good opportunity to pass him. He knew that if he could get the jump on second-place starter Breuers, that he would be able to control the pace of the race and let him build up a gap over the field. He was right, making an excellent start and quickly building up a lead early in the race over Breuers.

What Allmendinger did not know was that he would have to do it again as a yellow flag late in the race bunched the field up erasing the 5.2 second lead he had built up over the field and giving Breuers one last chance to pass.
