After qualifying in 2nd, just 1-tenth behind a Mini Cooper. Morgan took the lead on lap 3 with a move exiting PIR's infamous "Festival Curves," before opening up a gap on the Mini. Morgan held on to win the B-Spec class, his first win behind the wheel of the Team KBR B-Spec.

Race 2 saw Morgan drive a clean, conservative race, en route to his 2nd win of the season. Having enjoyed a successful racing career in the early 90's, Morgan praised the Kia's great handling and easy to drive platform.

For our next B-Spec event, we head south to Thunderhill Raceway Park, for Round 3 of the US Majors Tour. Kyle Keenan will return to the seat, attempting to collect his first US Majors Tour win.
