A month or so after Justin Wilson helped Michael Shank Racing claim the overall victory in the Rolex 24
at Daytona International Speedway, another IZOD IndyCar Series driver walked away with a win in a prestigious sports car event.
E.J. Viso, who will drive the No. 5 CITGO-KV Racing Technology Chevrolet in IndyCar this season, helped CORE Motorsports pull off a triumph in the Prototype Challenge class at the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring. The team of Viso, Alex Popow and Burt Frisselle finished 12th overall in a 64-car field.
Audi's trio of Dindo Capello, Tom Kristensen and Allan McNish claimed the overall win in their Audi R18.

Andretti Sports Marketing will pay $10,000 more to lease the Milwaukee Mile for its IZOD IndyCar Series event this season than the previous race promoter did for last season's running.The Milwaukee Business Journal reports
that ASM is leasing the famous facility (which is owned by the Wisconsin State Fair Park) for $25,000, with half the amount due on April 1 and the rest on June 13. The previous Milwaukee promoter leased the Mile for $15,000 last season; unfortunately for them, the race did not perform up to expectations in terms of attendance.
