Johnny O'Connell pushed the Katech powered CTS-V.R up to 2nd place despite an electrical problem at St. Petersburg this weekend. Andy Pilgrim led the race for a while but dropped back to 8th because of another undetermined vehicle problem. It was very disappointing because we had the opportunity to take 1st and 2nd, but overall it was nice that Johnny pushed to second. He is an amazing driver and a fun guy to hang out with. His move to 3rd place passing 3 cars at once with about 6 laps to go had me cheering off my couch.
