Pintaric looks to rebound at Homestead-Miami

(Team Release) David Pintaric has told anyone that wants to hear it that he intends to put a full effort into winning the 2014 Trans Am Series Championship. He knows that means winning races and running up front. He also knows that it sometimes means making something out of nothing and that something might be the difference in getting that championship. The 2014 season opener at Sebring turned out to be one of those get something out of nothing races.

The #27 KRYDERACING/Carbotech/WRP Investments Corvette had a problem of one kind or another in every session of the event, yet Pintaric very likely passed more cars than any other driver on the race track and salvaged a solid 7th place finish when he needed to.

"We started 18th and ran as high as 6th.", said Pintaric. "We then got a puncture in an oil line and oil was everywhere including the windshield." You could hear Daniel Lacy on the public address system yelling about Pintaric fighting thru the closing laps with a smoking car. In the end the oil leak cut short the forward progress of his race, but he only lost one of the hard earned positions gained to get the checkered flag in 7th spot.

It was a struggle but usually professionally spoken Pintaric let his passion for the his racing and his team slip out when he said after the race, "There ain't no way I didn't finish. The crew worked too hard for me to just pack it in!"

Next for Pintaric and KRYDERACING is Homestead Miami Speedway. The March 9th race is at a track new to Pintaric. Its also a track located someplace warm. "Its 18 degrees here right now.", said Pintaric from his Ohio home.
