Wright Motorsports Grabs Podiums in Nashville

9 August 2021 GT America

Charlie Luck’s effort in SRO America’s new GT America series has been an impressive one all year, with the bronze-rated driver finishing second in both of his races this weekend in Nashville, Tennessee. The Music City Grand Prix held two races for the GT America championship, letting the field of sports cars storm the downtown city streets. After securing a second-place finish in class and third overall on the street course on Saturday, Luck looked to be a strong contender for Sunday’s podium as well. The No. 45 Porsche 911 GT3 R was a victim of contact in the opening of the race, as the field of bronze drivers drove into a narrow turn, hoping to gain position. Though Luck went wide to avoid the bottleneck, another car crashed into him, dropping him down the charts. He was able to continue, and despite a series of cautions, he charged back through the field to earn another second-place finish. The result keeps Luck firmly in the points lead heading into the next event at Road America, August 27-29.

I had a great weekend overall with two second-place positions in masters, and one third and a seventh-place finish overall. I totally love the Nashville street course and I can’t wait to go back again next year. In race two, we took our bad situation from the first turn and came back from last to finish seventh. Overall, I am very happy with the weekend.
