Luhr, Graf win at Road America

ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (AP) - Lucas Luhr and Klaus Graf rolled to their fifth consecutive American Le Mans Series victory Sunday at Road America, holding on after a strong challenge by the revolutionary DeltaWing LM12.

The DeltaWing led for the first time in the series, topping the field twice for 16 laps. In the production-based GT class, SRT Viper took its first factory-backed victory since New Year's Eve in 2000 when Dominick Farnbacher and Marc Goossens won in the No. 91 Viper GTS-R.

Katherine Legge put the No. 0 DeltaWing into the overall lead on Lap 20, and led eight laps before giving way to Luhr's No. 6 Muscle Milk HPD ARX-03c. Co-driver Andy Meyrick regained the lead during pit stops, and also led eight laps before being passed by Graf in the Canada Corner with 51 minutes remaining.

Legge and Meyrick took third in class and placed fifth overall, running at the finish for the first time this season.

Luhr extended his ALMS-leading total to 46 victories, while Graf won for the 19th time.
