Kasemets Keeps Pushing In Protype Challenge Race

ALTON, Va. — There’s no low gear for Tonis Kasemets inside a race car, and he showed it again Sunday when he dominated the IMSA Prototype Challenge race at VIRginia International Raceway. The victory also increased Kasemets’ points lead to 140 with only the season finale on Sept. 30 at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta remaining. “I have only one pace,” Kasemets said in victory lane. Yet he still kept pushing, turning the first race lap under 1 minute, 43 seconds on lap 19. After establishing a comfortable lead again, he proceeded to turn his two fastest laps of the race on the 44th and 45th times around. 23 Duqueine with Memo Gidley, was handicapped on the final restart with six lapped cars between him and Kasemets. Despite the 140-point deficit with just one race remaining, Gidley said there’s no give up in the No.
