Rebel Rock Wins at Road America

It was a dramatic pass at the finish line that allowed Robin Liddell and Frank DePew to claim victory at Road America, winning the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge GS class with their #71 Rebel Rock Racing Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R on Forgeline one piece forged monoblock GS1R wheels.

The Rebel Rock Camaro started the race at Road America with momentum from a slew of recent successes, including a win at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park in July. But severe thunderstorms in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin forced a delayed start and a shortened race length to just 75 minutes.

As usual, Liddell displayed his driving brilliance. Sitting in 4th place on the final lap, he made a brilliant pass around the famed Canada Corner, moving past Corey Fergus in the #69 Motorsports-In-Action McLaren GT4 and Eric Foss in the #56 Murillo Racing Mercedes-AMG GT4 to take second place. Then just inches from the finish line, Kuno Wittmer made an error in the #75 Compass Racing McLaren GT4, allowing the hard-charging Liddell to seize victory quite literally at the finish line!

Congrats to Frank, Robin, Chevrolet, and everyone from Rebel Rock Racing for another outstanding performance! And thanks for trusting Forgeline to carry the load!
