Loudoun Motorsports Suzuki's Ken Snyder and David Yaakov won the Formula USA/Engine Ice 200-Mile Team Challenge on a Metzeler DOT-equipped Suzuki GSX-R1000 at Pocono International Raceway Friday afternoon. Snyder took the lead from the start and handed a one-lap advantage to Yaakov just after the halfway point of the 80-lap race. Yaakov brought Loudoun Motorsports home one minute and 33 seconds in front of second-place Edge Motorsports.<BR><BR>Edge Motorsports' Greg Leffler and Michael Fitzpatrick finished second overall, and in the GTO class, on a GSX-R750 equipped with a single-sided swingarm and Pirelli slicks. Third overall, and in GTO, went to Imotosports.com's Brandon Bashore and Fred Stucky on a 109-horsepower Aprilia RSV1000 Mille on Bridgestone slicks.
