Ruman Ready for Road Atlanta Trans Am Round 3
May 10, 2017
TEAM NEWS Munroe Falls, Ohio – Ruman is race ready and will be back in action this weekend for Round 3 or the Trans Am Series Championship Presented by Pirelli. The Series is heading to Road Atlanta in Braselton, GA alongside the Formula Drift series.
Ruman and team have enjoyed much success at the 2.54-mile iconic Road Atlanta circuit driving the No. 23 McNichols Co. Corvette, as she has scored three career victories here; 2016, 2015, and captured her historic first ever Trans Am win here in 2011.
“I love Road Atlanta and can’t wait to get back in action this weekend!” exclaimed Ruman. “We have had some strong dominate wins here in the past and I’m just going to try and repeat that again on Saturday. I definitely haven’t been running as well as I should be this year, so I’m looking to turn that around.”
There are 55 competitors entered for this weekend’s races across the four classes, with 17 entered in the TA class. The weekend will start off with a promoter test day on Thursday May 11th. Two official TA practices and a qualifying session will take place on Friday May 12th. Saturday will feature two Trans Am races – the TA/3/4 race at 8:55am followed by the TA2 at 11:30am, both at 40-laps (101.6-mi) – all times listed are ET.
