Real Time Racing's Kleinubing Shares Speed World Challenge Points Lead
After three of 11 races in the 2006 SPEED World Challenge for Touring Cars, Acura driver Pierre Kleinubing is tied for the points lead and the Acura entry is in a torrid battle with Mazda for the manufacturers' title.
Kleinubing, tied with Randy Pobst, has amassed 90 points on the strength of his consistency, finishing third at Sebring, third at St. Petersburg and second at Mid-Ohio.
The Brazilian is one of five RealTime Racing drivers in 2006. Team founder Peter Cunningham stood third in Touring Car points, as the series headed for Sonoma, Calif. in late June.
Cunningham, a two-time SPEED champion, has finished fifth, second and sixth in his TSX.
Teammate Brandon Davis ranks fifth, Nick Esayian sixth and Eric Curran is 12th.
