Ruman Eyeing another Win at Lime Rock Park this Weekend
May 21, 2015
TEAM RELEASE Munroe Falls, Ohio – Can Amy Ruman make it four wins in a row this season? We will soon find out as the Trans Am Series heads to the road race center of the East, Lime Rock Park, Lakeville, CT for Round 4 of the Championship lineup.
After Ruman’s dominant performance in Round 3 of the Championship at Road Atlanta on May 9, she remains poised and focused looking for that fourth win as Trans Am heads to one of the most famous road racing tracks in America. The 1.5-mile quick “bullring” style track is very different for the drivers compared to the longer tracks the series sees throughout the year. The iconic seven-turn natural terrain road course, features corners with names like “Big Bend,” “The Uphill,” “West Bend,” and the last corner the “Downhill,” that thrusts the field down the front stretch seeing lap times clicking off in less than one minute.
“Lime Rock is a very challenging, different, fast, drivers track. You have to be precise here, lap after lap, which is the key. As I’ve stated in the past, I’m just taking in one race at a time and looking for the best possible finish – another win,” remarked Ruman. “We are excited to be here once again on the all-American traditional Memorial Day weekend venue, and the fans here are just awesome!”
Ruman’s best Lime Rock finish was 3rd here in 2012, so she is looking to climb up two more steps in Saturday’s 3Dimensional Services Next Dimension 100 and get another essential win in her battle for the Championship title. Ruman, piloting the No. 23 McNichols Co. Corvette, will have her work cut out with competitor Paul Fix, who is currently second in the point standings and has won the last two years at the Lime Rock Park event.
The weekend will be a short schedule, with practice and qualifying taking place on Friday, May 22. Saturday, May 23 will showcase two races, the TA2 race will start at 1:00 PM and the combined TA/TA3 green flag will drop at 3:15 PM. All times listed are EDT.
Ruman currently leads the Championship points standings with a total of 102, Fix is second with 81, and Peterson is third with a total of 71. The 3Dimensional Services Next Dimension 100 at Lime Rock Park will be broadcast on CBS Sports Network on Saturday, June 6, 12:00 PM, and the TA2 3Dimensional Services Muscle Car Challenge will air on Saturday, June 13, 12:00 PM EDT.
