The team was able to make all the necessary repairs to the #23 McNichols Co./Goodyear/Cenweld Chevrolet Corvette after the mishap at the Road America race. This weekend’s 23rd Annual Coca-Cola Muscle Car Shootout Drag Races & SCCA Pro Racing Road Races will feature two 100 mile Trans-Am Series races for the teams, with a race on Saturday and one on Sunday. It will be a very busy weekend for the teams, as there will be three official practice sessions, two qualifying sessions, and two races on the 2.5 mile – 13 turn road course.

“I’m looking forward to checking out the BIR track,” said Ruman. “I really hope our luck turns around here, it has been a tough year on the team. We have two shots at a win this weekend and that’s even better!”

The official event starts Friday and runs through Sunday, all times are Central Daylight Time. Trans-Am practices will be Friday at 6:20pm, Saturday and Sunday at 8:40am. Qualifying will take place 11:30am Saturday for race 1, and 11:00am Sunday for race 2. The green flag will fly on Saturday at 3:40pm and Sunday’s race will be at 2:35pm.
