Recap:
•Dane Cameron and Juan Pablo Montoya are the hottest duo on the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship circuit after scoring their second-consecutive series win, this time on the streets of Belle Isle Park in Detroit, in the No. 6 Acura DPi.
•With the win, Cameron and Montoya become the first team with multiple wins on the year.
•Montoya started the weekend off in spectacular fashion with a track-record run in qualifying to score the team’s second pole position of the season.
•After keeping the Acura in the lead, Montoya pitted under caution at the 31-minute mark and gave the reigns over to Cameron for the rest of the race.
•The only point in the race that the No. 6 machine was not in the lead was following this pit stop as they restarted from the third position, but Cameron quickly passed both positions in front of him and withstood numerous caution periods to bring home the win for team owner Roger Penske in his hometown.
•The No. 6 team is now second in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship DPi standings, five points out of the lead.
•The IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Series will next visit Watkins Glen International on Sunday, June 30 for the Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen.
