Michael McCann, of North Canton, Ohio, earned the first win of his SCCA Pro Racing SPEED World Challenge career, taking the SCCA SPEED GT portion of the 54th Annual Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring by 11.571 seconds in his No. 82 McCann Plastics/K&N Filters Dodge Viper. Reigning SPEED GT Drivers’ Champion Andy Pilgrim, of Boca Raton, Fla., was second for the third year in a row at Sebring, and Bob Woodhouse, of Blair, Neb., finished third – the highest finish of his SCCA SPEED World Challenge career.
“I think I’m more Irish today than I’ve ever been,” McCann said. “You work so hard to put yourself in this position, to get to the podium. Sometimes, you need a lot. You need some luck. Sometimes you need the big guy upstairs to shine on you, and he shined on me today.
