On Saturday, August 3, the No. 57 IBERIABANK Mercedes-AMG GT4 took the green flag for the two-hour #RoadAmerica120 at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. At the checkered flag, Russell and Bryce Ward brought home a 13th place finish from the event.
The team improved on the No. 57 IBERIABANK Mercedes-AMG throughout the weekend. After practicing in the 19th and 15th places during the #RoadAmerica120 practice sessions, Russell and Bryce rocketed to the ninth place during qualifying, solidifying a top-ten start for the two-hour race.
“Bryce did an awesome job qualifying the car inside the top 10. I think it was one of his best qualifications of the year,” said Russell Ward. “He did an awesome job in a very wet start and managed to gain a few places. I jumped in in the dry and was one of the fastest Mercedes on the track. The team did an excellent job in constantly changing conditions.”
