Ruman Returns for Trans Am Season Finale at COTA

Munroe Falls, Ohio – Amy Ruman will return to racing this weekend for the final round of the 2021 Championship Presented by Pirelli at the Circuit of the Americas (COTA), Texas. Heading into COTA, Ruman dropped to fifth place in the Championship points standings after missing Round 10 at VIRgina International Raceway in September after testing positive with breakthrough Covid-19.
 
This is the last stop on the 2021 SpeedTour, Trans Am’s seventh consecutive appearance at the signature purpose-built Formula 1 track. Running in conjunction with the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA), fans will be welcomed with a weekend full of Texas fun and entertainment. The 3.4-mile world-class track is made up of 20 turns and dramatic elevation changes, including the 133-foot climb up to an extremely tight turn 1.
 
“I am really happy to get back in the No. 23 McNichols/Cornertech Chevrolet Corvette at COTA this weekend. Missing the VIR race was a huge disappointment for us. Unfortunately, the circumstances were out of my control, but I’m happy to report I’m feeling great and I’m ready to race!” stated Ruman. “I’m looking forward to ending the season on a high note. I’ve had much success at COTA with a win and several podium finishes. Hopefully, we can find our rhythm again quickly and settle in. It should be a great race!”
 
Seventy-seven competitors are entered across all classes for the weekend, one of the largest fields ever, with twelve running in Ruman’s TA class. Testing, practices, and qualifying will take place Friday through Sunday. Both races will be held on Sunday November 7th, with the TA2® race at 10:50am CT, followed by the TA/XGT/SGT/GT feature race at 1:50pm CT, each for 30-laps.
