Recap: After appearing to struggle to find speed during the practice sessions for Sunday’s Continental Tire Road Race Showcase at Road America, Acura Team Penske put down two good laps when it counted as both the No. 6 and No. 7 Acura Prototypes will start inside the top five. Ricky Taylor, who came into this weekend with four-consecutive top-five starts at Road America, finished the session with the second-fastest lap in the No. 7 Acura. Juan Pablo Montoya, a Verizon IndyCar Series veteran at Road America, will start fifth in his first IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race at the historic Wisconsin layout.
