LAKEVILLE, Conn. (AP) - Lucas Luhr survived an early battle with Chris Dyson to help score the third consecutive American Le Mans Series victory for Muscle Milk Pickett Racing and co-driver Klaus Graf in the Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park on Saturday.

Luhr started from the pole in the No. 6 Honda and turned the car over to Graf with 45 minutes remaining. By then, the Dyson team encountered problems that removed them from contention, allowing Graf to cruise to a six-lap victory.

John Edwards and Dirk Muller teamed to win the GT class in the No. 56 BMW Z4 GTE co-owned by IndyCar champion Bobby Rahal, David Letterman and Chicago businessman Mike Lanigan.

Ryan Briscoe, who is also competing in Sunday's IndyCar race at Pocono Raceway, won the P2 class with co-driver Scott Tucker.
