WERC Goes From Start to Finish in the Dark at Buttonwillow

Races in the Western Endurance Racing Championship series nearly always begin in the warm orange glow of a setting sun and finish in the pitch black of California’s San Joaquin Valley — but not the October event.

In ES, Team TruSpeed brought the biggest gun to the knife fight with its Porsche Cup car, but the car suffered a mechanical breakdown after just three laps, and retired. At the end of hour one, Team Prototype Development Group was leading, but before the two-mark the team suffered a crash in the Grapevine turn, and retired.
