Matt Bell + Lawson AschenbachTOP-FIVE IN DETROIT: The Jacksonville, North Carolina-based team heads north again following a fifth place finish for Davis and Liddell in their No. 6 Audi R8 LMS around the streets of Belle Isle just a few short weeks ago. The brother No. 9 Audi R8 LMS of Bell and Aschenbach fought back from a mechanical issue to return to the track and take the checkered flag despite having to go behind the wall following the first yellow of the short street sprint.
LOOKING TO CONTINUE GLEN WINNING STREAK: Stevenson Motorsports has stood on the top step of the podium at Watkins Glen every year since 2012 with Liddell and John Edwards driving to a win in GRAND-AM Rolex Series competition in both 2012 and 2013 while Davis and Liddell drove to back-to-back wins in Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge competition at the track in 2014 and 2015, en route to the 2015 IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Championship title.
PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT: While the 2016 edition of the historic six-hour race marks the first race laps for the team’s new twin Audi R8 LMS machinery, Stevenson Motorsports tackles the circuit with no shortage of experience. The team has 27 starts around the circuit, starting back in 2003 and has notched an impressive six starts in the Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen event with two of those resulting in a win and seven podium performances overall. Outside of their success as a team, driver Aschenbach also boasts a win in Continental Tire competition in 2010 with Compass360 Racing and Liddell scored a GT class win in the Six Hours in 2006.
Long History of Podiums at Watkins Glen: The track record at Watkins Glen goes back to 2003, when team owner Johnny Stevenson scored a podium finish in his Rolex GT Class debut. And in celebration of the team’s return to where it all started at the Glen, a look at Stevenson Motorsports:
