October 13, 2016
After season-long development effort, Texas based TA2 team ready for return
AVONDALE, La. [October 13, 2016] – Napoleon Motorsports will officially unveil its revamped three-car effort in the Trans Am Series’ TA2 class at NOLA Motorsports Park this Saturday, October 15. The father-son team of Joe and Justin Napoleon will return, sporting their new Mike Cope Racing built Chevrolet Camaros developed over the course of the 2016 season.
Justin Napoleon will make his 15th career start this weekend in the No. 90 Turnkey Industries/ Moon Shine Camo Chevrolet Camaro, while Joe Napoleon also returns in the No. 91 Turnkey Industries/ Moon Shine Camo Chevrolet Camaro—also set to make his 15th career start.
The Napoleon Motorsports team is also pleased to announce the addition of a third car to the Magnolia, Texas, based team, the No. 92 2015 Wildfire Camaro, with Trans Am veteran John Atwell joining the team for the NOLA and COTA events with an eye to potentially participating at the season finale at Daytona. Atwell has 25 career starts in Trans Am to his name and adds five seasons of TA2 racing experience to the Napoleon Motorsports team.
The end of the 2016 season will allow the team to put their new TA2 machines through their paces as the team prepares to run the entirety of the 2017 Trans Am Championship along with select Trans Am West Coast Championship appearances.
“We’re excited to jump back in the TA2 action at NOLA and COTA,” said Justin Napoleon. “These two local tracks are ideal for us to showcase our new Mike Cope Chevrolet Camaros and introduce our partners, as we prepare for the 2017 and the challenge that is a full season of TA2 racing. We’ve put in some serious time developing these cars and are ready to finally put them to the test this weekend.”
The close of the 2016 Trans Am Championship also allows the Napoleon Motorsports team to showcase and acknowledge the addition of a multitude of new partners and host an in-paddock celebration for Turnkey Industries’ various customers, clients, vendors, employees, friends and family at Trans Am’s penultimate round at Circuit of the Americas, Saturday, November 5th.
Napoleon Motorsports will proudly fly the colors for those partners throughout the remainder of the 2016 Championship, including Turnkey Industries, Moon Shine Camo, PMS Excavation, Southern Star Brewery and COOLSHIRT Systems. The NOLA and COTA events will showcase COOLSHIRT displays while COTA will feature a beer tasting from Southern Star.
