Fresh off a win at its home track in Canada, the Multimatic Motorsports Shelby GT350R-C team chalked up its second win in a row for Ford Performance at Lime Rock Park last weekend. Drivers Billy Johnson and Scott Maxwell qualified in the second spot and got great support in the pits to take another victory.

The Multimatic Motorsports Shelby GT350R-C team picked up big chunks of time at Lime Rock thanks to efficient pit stops.

“Our pit stops were superb,” Scott said. “Billy and I didn’t make any mistakes, but really, we won it in the pits today. We gained five or six seconds each time (we stopped). That was enough to win the race.”

It was definitely a clean race as the teammates led a combined 88 of the 150 laps around the 1.53-mile course. It was in the pits where they really picked up an advantage. After the first stop the Multimatic car gained five seconds and on the last stop they only took on two tires to gain more precious seconds.
