Archer and Andretti aim for podium finishes at Mid-Ohio
August 11, 2016
Duluth, MN – After a successful 2nd place finish a month ago at Brainerd International Raceway, Tommy and the Archer Brothers team will join their ECC Motorsports team driver Adam Andretti this weekend for the next round in the Trans Am TA2 series at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course located in Lexington, OH. Tommy and Adam are both anxious to return to a track loved by many, both racers and spectators, due to its vast history dating back to 1962 and a multitude of opportunities to view road racing at its finest in many of the 13 turns within this 2.25 mile track.
Mid-Ohio will be the half-way point of the 12 race season and both drivers are hoping this race can improve their current position in the points standings of 9th and 11th, with many of the top 11 drivers separated by less than 10 points. Past experiences and successes at this track have Andretti and Archer approaching this race with confidence and last year’s results of Adam finishing on the podium in 3rd position and Tommy finishing 8th, gives the teams a great starting place of what works well. “Going to Mid-Ohio always brings back so many great memories for me. This track has always been in my top 3 favorite tracks, I’ve had some great success there and is a little extra fun to drive at because it is such a historic track that always brings exciting racing,” says Tommy.
Tommy, Adam and the other 25+ drivers will hit the track for testing and practice sessions today and the ‘Pura Vida Tequila Muscle Car 100 Presented by ETE Reman Race’ – 101.96 miles/45 laps or 75 minute race on Saturday, August 13th beginning at 12:45pm EST.
