Fix set for Championship run
January 7, 2015
WILLIAMSVILLE, NY (January 8, 2015)… Championship contender Paul Fix will return to the Trans Am series in 2015 and compete in the entirety of the 12-race season. Fix will contest the nation’s longest-running road racing series at the controls of a fresh No. 4 Tony Ave Racing AR-1 car. The combination of Fix and Ave has provided wins and track records the past two seasons and will be a force to be reckoned with for the championship trophy come season’s end.
“The past two years I have run a limited schedule of races,” said Fix. “Now is the time to step the program up and go for the championship. The series is progressing, Tony has a top notch team and I have every confidence that this year we will be the car to beat.”
Fix will head into the new season coming off a streak of back-to-back wins and track records set during the 2013 and 2014 racing seasons. As the first event at Sebring, Florida looms, the team is preparing to enter into a new phase.
“We will have some exciting news in the coming weeks about our program and new partners,” said Fix. “Everyone involved is excited to get the season under way.”
For Tony Ave, the opportunity to run Fix and the No. 4 car for a full season of racing isn’t being taken lightly. The team is hard at work with preparations aimed at securing another championship for Tony Ave Racing.
Said Ave, “The guys in the shop haven’t really had much time off. Everyone is hard at work getting ready to assault the new season of racing. Everyone in the engine shop, suspension department, out on the shop floor—everybody—has their sleeves rolled up and grinding away.”
The pursuit for the 2015 championship will get underway the first weekend of March at Sebring International Raceway. Fans can follow Paul Fix at www.facebook.com/paulfixii for updates and photos, paulfix.com and on Twitter @paul_fix.
