CD Racing Looks For Second Straight Winning Weekend As Trans Am Visits New Orleans
March 7, 2023
POUGHKEEPSIE, NY (March 7, 2023) – This weekend at NOLA Motorsports Park Chris Dyson will be looking to bounce back from mechanical problems that knocked him out of last month’s series opener at Sebring and prevented the two-time defending Trans Am champion from joining his CD Racing teammates – eventual race-winner Matthew Brabham and runner-up Adam Andretti — in an unprecedented Trans Am podium sweep.
“How could my emotions after Sebring be anything but mixed?” Dyson said. “Great for the team; disappointing for me personally. Still, in racing everyone has good luck and bad. I think it’s better to get misfortune out of the way early.”
Dyson said he was pleased to have Brabham back for NOLA. At New Orleans Dyson will be behind the wheel of the #16 GYM WEED Ford Mustang while Brabham will be driving the team’s #20 GYM WEED Ford Mustang.
“Matty has done such a great job for us when we’ve needed him,” Dyson said. “Beginning at the 2021 season final, he's raced with us six times. Sebring last month was his fourth win and in his other two races he finished second. We are still developing our new Riley-chassis car and comparing it with our double-championship Meissen. I’ll be driving the Riley car this weekend while Matty will be using the Meissen. Clearly they both are fast enough to win, but I think it’s important that both Matty and I be making input on the development of the Riley.”
Dyson has not previously driven at NOLA but Brabham has, and his previous experience and input will no doubt be helpful for the New York-based organization. Dyson says he’s looking forward to racing there. “It looks to me like it’s got good flow,” Dyson said. “I expect it will be a bit like VIR and Mid-Ohio. We don’t have a book on the circuit, so we’re going to have to make the most of the test and practice sessions so we’ll be ready for qualifying on Saturday.”
Dyson said he expected stiff competition for the pole and for the race.
“Tomy Drissi overcame some challenges at Sebring and scored a solid finish in the end,” Dyson said. “He’s going to be tough this weekend and so will Justin Marks, who's going to be racing with us all year.” Dyson noted that Marks had taken pole at Sebring and was battling Dyson for the race lead before they both had mechanical problems.
Qualifying takes place Saturday, March 11, 3:35 – 3:50 p.m. CT (4:35 – 4:50 ET)
The 100-mile race takes the green flag Sunday, 12 at 12:30 p.m. CT (1:30 ET)
