Luhr, Graf prevail at Lime Rock

LAKEVILLE, Conn. -- Lucas Luhr survived an early battle with Chris Dyson to help score the third consecutive American Le Mans Series victory for Muscle Milk Pickett Racing and co-driver Klaus Graf in the Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park on Saturday.

Luhr started from the pole in the No. 6 Honda and turned the car over to Graf with 45 minutes remaining. By then, the Dyson team encountered problems that removed them from contention, allowing Graf to cruise to a six-lap victory.

John Edwards and Dirk Muller teamed to win the GT class in the No. 56 BMW Z4 GTE co-owned by IndyCar champion Bobby Rahal, David Letterman and Chicago businessman Mike Lanigan.

Ryan Briscoe, also competing in Sunday's IndyCar race at Pocono Raceway, won the P2 class with co-driver Scott Tucker.
