HOMESTEAD, Fla. — Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas won the Grand Prix of Miami for the second straight year Saturday to extend their Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series winning streak to a record five races.

Pruett and Rojas, driving for Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates, won the final three Daytona Prototype races last year and took the season-opening Rolex 24 At Daytona.

On Saturday at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Rojas started the No. 01 MBW/Riley on the pole, was shuffled back to 11th because of a drive-through penalty for aggressive driving, then advanced through the field and eventually regained the lead.

Rojas turned the car over to Pruett with approximately an hour remaining in the 2-hour, 45-minute event. After falling back to third, Pruett battled and finally got by Max Angelelli in Turn 8 in the closing minutes, leading the final seven laps.

Darren Law passed Angelelli with 3 minutes remaining and went on to finish second in the No. 5 Porsche/Riley started by co-driver David Donohue. Angelelli held on for third in the No. 10 Chevrolet/Dallara started by Ricky Taylor, after the team led a race-high 47 laps.
