Hindman rejoined the field in tenth, just before the second yellow flag was deployed. After pitting for fuel only, the 24-year old restarted the race from seventh, where he engaged in a tight battle for position with Andrew Davis while holding off a charging Kyle Marcelli.
The final hour of the race was plagued with two more full course cautions and two more flawless pitstops; Both of which, complied with Hindman’s heads up driving, allowed the VOLT Lighting Porsche to advance to second with nine laps remaining. Despite drifting back to fourth position, strong fuel strategy played in the group’s favor when the second place car ran out of fuel on the last lap, advancing Hindman to the final podium slot.
The Archangel Motorsports team will return to action with a double-header IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge event at Mid-Ohio SportsCar Course, September 25-27

Trent Hindman | Driver, No. 7 VOLT Lighting Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport - “Today’s podium really came down to the VOLT Lighting and Archangel Motorsports team. Mike Johnson’s strategy and all of the guys going over the wall did perfectly. We maximized everything we had with a car that didn’t necessarily have the pace. Thanks to Alan, Mike and the whole team for the great effort to get us a great result.
