Millville, NJ (May 3, 2009) – The Doran Racing / McDonald's team battled through conditions more suited to jet skis than race cars and scored another top-7 finish at this weekend's Verizon Wireless 250, round 3 of the 2009 Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series. Brad Jaeger, co-driver of the #77 Doran Racing/ McDonald's/Doran-Dallara Ford, qualified the car 10th on the grid for the start of the 250-mile main event and drove several stints, running consistently with the leaders and as high as second in the early stages of the race. The team called him in for a pit stop and driver change when two cars spun into the tire barrier, but the expected yellow flag was never displayed and the #77 car dropped a lap down. Gidley continued to battle his way back through the pack, finally finishing 7th after a long and difficult day.
