New York – The F.A.S.T Auto Racing team arrives at Virginia International Raceway (VIR) for this weekend’s
Trans Am presented by Pirelli event after some serious hammer time at their New York shop. The team has
been “all in” to repair the major damage received after being hit from behind at Watkins Glen International.
Team Owner Adrian Wlostowski said, “We’ve had to do a ton of work in a very short amount of time to get to
VIR. Everyone on the F.A.S.T. Auto Racing Team as well as at Howe Racing Enterprises stepped up once again.
In our first season I’ve had to call on my guys over and over to go above and beyond and they haven’t flinched.

penultimate round at VIR.
“We had a great finish Sunday at the Glen coming home fifth despite the damage from the previous day. The
car has been really good, and my team continues to give 100 percent,” said Wlostowski. “We’ve been close to
our first top-three finish, and I’d love to stand on the podium for my team and Hawk Performance. Everyone
has worked really hard, and it would mean a lot to all of us to have a podium finish.
“VIR will be tough, the track is super fast and it takes a lot to stay hard on the gas. All the front runners will be
back despite the number of cars that were damaged at the last event. The racing in TA2 is some of the best in
the country, the teams are first class, and the competition is extremely tough – and that’s exactly how we like
