Paul Fix Returns To Trans Am To Defend His Lime Rock Park Winning Streak
May 23, 2019
Williamsville, NY- (May 21, 2019) Paul Fix will enter the 2019 Trans Am Series race in The Trans Am Memorial Day Classic at Lime Rock Park in Lakeville CT. Fix will be racing the #4 StopFlex/Classic Tube/ Car Coach, Ford Mustang, driving for Tony Ave Racing.
Fix comes back to the series with the determination to defend his winning streak at the historic track. Winning for three straight years in 2013, 2014 and 2015, Fix will be going for a four-peat.
It’s been 4 years since The Trans Am Series has visited Lime Rock Park and this event will also celebrate 55 years of Mustang with a SVRA featured Marque Reunion and race.
“It’s great to be back at one of my favorite tracks and on such an important weekend when we remember and honor the people who have sacrificed while serving in the United States Armed Forces.”
While the Lime Rock Park track layout is one of the shortest courses the series will compete on, it still presents sufficient challenges to master.
“The fans are fantastic here at Lime Rock and they have been supporting the Trans Am Series here since 1968. It’s fitting I’ll be piloting a Mustang as we celebrate 55 years of the pony car. I’m sure we’ll put on a great show for the fans on Monday.”
The official weekend starts Friday with on track testing alongside SVRA. The TA race wraps up the four-day race weekend on Monday with qualifying starting at 9:05 a.m., culminating with a 100 miles, 67 laps or 65 minutes feature starting at 12:50 p.m.
Several other fan activities are also scheduled for Sunday. View full schedule and purchase tickets here: LimeRock.com/memorial-day-weekend
