Double podium for Sloan Urry in No. 02 SecurityNational Porsche
Tooele, Utah (24 August 2015) – Racing at Sloan Urry’s home track, SecurityNational Mortgage had a big weekend at Miller Motorsports Park with a significant marketing activation as well as strength on track. Contending the MOMO GT Cup class of Pirelli World Challenge competition, Urry scored a double podium finish with a run to third on Saturday and then returning to the podium again on Sunday with an encore third place result.
The strong finishes marked Urry’s ninth and 10th podium results of the year in his first season of Pirelli World Challenge MOMO GT Cup competition after showing himself as a race winner in IMSA last year.
The Pirelli World Challenge staged a double header at Miller over the weekend and after qualifying third on the grid for Race 1, Urry converted that into a run to third place with a quickest lap time of 1:55.596-seconds.
“It’s hard to be unhappy with a podium finish, and I think we put on a good show for the hometown crowd and all of our sponsors,” said Urry following Race 1. “The support I’ve had this weekend is unbeatable. SecurityNational Mortgage, Alder and Tweed, Metro National Title and so many others have really stepped up to come and bring a large contingent of guests and make it quite the event so hats off to them. I really appreciate everything they do for me and the team and hopefully tomorrow I can give them a little bit more of what we’re expecting.”
Once again racing in front of a packed house of SecurityNational Mortgage guests, Urry took to the challenging road course for Race 2 on Sunday. The race saw a standing start and though Urry didn’t get the best start off of the line, he made up for it with his experienced driving at the track to once again drive to a podium finish.
“The car was good – it was pretty similar to yesterday,” said Urry. “The TruSpeed guys put a good car under me. I didn’t get the start I wanted, I just bogged down the motor off the line. I had traffic I had to work through after that and it separated me a bit from the leaders. I was really hoping for a yellow to give me a shot to step a little higher on the podium but considering the start I got, I’m pleased to have finished on the podium. Hats off once again to SecurityNational Mortgage, Alder and Tweed, and Metro National Title for just showing me a great amount of support this weekend. I think everyone was very pleased this weekend.”
Urry and SecurityNational will be back in action when the Pirelli World Challenge stages the penultimate rounds of the 2015 championship at Sonoma Raceway next weekend.
