That’s exactly what happened Sunday afternoon at Road America.
Speed was important and precision vital, but ultimately the Continental Tire Road Race Showcase was decided on fuel economy.
Enter Colin Braun.
No driver anywhere in racing has a closer connection to the man with the calculator.
Jeff Braun has known Colin for all of his life. His calls and coaching put Colin in the lead for the first time with two laps to go and helped the team to its second victory in the premier Prototype class of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season.
“I have a great engineer in my dad, obviously, who I know well,” Colin Braun said. “I can hear in his voice how much fuel savings we’re doing or how much we should be doing or if that was good or bad. I knew we were really, really tight.”
