History Favors Dyson's Chances at Mid-Ohio Trans Am

POUGHKEEPSIE, NY (June 18, 2024) – Over the past five seasons Chris Dyson has finished on the podium at every Trans Am by Pirelli race at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, winning twice and finishing runner up twice. This weekend Dyson will be looking for his second race win of the season, as well as his third career Mid-Ohio Trans Am victory and first pole position start of his Trans Am career at the circuit.

Mid-Ohio marks the midpoint of the 11-race 2024 TA-class season and the three-time series champion and defending race winner will be looking to put behind him several episodes of misfortune that marred the first half of the season.

“With the exception of earlier this month at Pittsburgh where we had some braking issues and frankly just missed the race setup,” Dyson said, “our GYM WEED Ford Mustang has been fast enough to win every time we’ve taken the green this year. Contact in the first corner twice in the first five races has hurt our season so far, but Mid-Ohio is one of my favorite tracks and I’m optimistic for our chances this weekend.”

The record confirms Dyson’s feeling for the challenging circuit. In addition to his two Trans Am wins and three other podium finishes, he has run well in other series over the course of his career.

“I've had some of the most memorable days of my career at Mid-Ohio over the years. It was where I competed in my first SCCA (National Championship) Runoffs. We won the IMSA American Le Mans Series race there in 2010 overall and it is where I did my first NASCAR race. It is a classic North American circuit, flowing and very challenging. I'm eager to see how the grip level has changed as they have repaved the whole track since we raced there last year. We are really pushing for race wins now."

Matos Looks For Hat Trick In TA2
