LAKEVILLE, Conn. (AP) -- Jordan Taylor and Max Angelelli won the final Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series Daytona Prototype season championship, racing to their third straight victory Saturday.

Driving the No. 10 Wayne Taylor Racing Corvette DP, Taylor took the lead for good with 69 laps remaining in the 173-lap event at Lime Rock Park and was never seriously challenged en route to a 5-second victory over Gustavo Yacaman in the No. 6 Michael Shank Racing Ford/Riley.

The race closed the 14th and final Grand-Am season. The series is merging with the American Le Mans Series next year to form the United SportsCar Championship.

Taylor won the championship for the first time, while Angelelli also won the Daytona Prototype title driving with team owner Wayne Taylor, Jordan's father.
