Ruman Finishes 4th Overall in 2020 TA Trans Am Championship After Scoring 5th and 7th Place Finishes at Road Atlanta Double
November 26, 2020
Munroe Falls, Ohio – The wild and crazy 2020 Trans Am Championship presented by Pirelli wrapped up this past weekend at Road Atlanta, GA. The season finale shifted up due to the cancelation of the December Laguna Seca, CA, event due to the state’s COVID-19 restrictions.
Ruman and team had a busy weekend running the No. 23 McNichols/Cornertech Chevrolet Corvette in two separate races last weekend to cap off the season. After qualifying in sixth place for both races, Ruman took home a fifth-place finish in race one, followed by a seventh-place finish in race two.
“I was really confident we would end the season here on a bit of a higher note, but unfortunately we just didn’t have the speed this weekend. I was third in the points heading into race two, but then Dyson won and that gave him the points advantage over me to take over third. After a chaotic season with the pandemic and some up and down finishes for us, I guess fourth place is not too bad,” commented Ruman.
“I just have to take a moment to thank my outstanding crew – Dave, Mike E., Mike W., Bobby, Blaine, and my parents – without them none of this would be possible! Also, I must thank McNichols Co. for their steadfast support throughout the years, they are the reason we get to do what we love so much. Also, a huge thank you to our new partner in 2020 – Cornertech CNC Solutions, I am so grateful for your support and I am so proud to represent you! And lastly, I want to thank the fans of Trans Am and Ruman Racing, thank you for tuning into the new LIVE streaming on the TA app or braving the conditions to come out to the tracks that were open to spectators, we are truly grateful your support!”
