Ruman to Run at Daytona for Trans Am Season Finale this Weekend

Munroe Falls, Ohio  – Amy Ruman will race in Round 11, the Trans Am season finale, at Daytona International Speedway, FL this weekend in the No. 23 McNichols Chevrolet Corvette.  She’s coming off a 3rd place finish at VIRginia International Raceway and currently sits in third place in the Trans Am Championship standings, just 8 points behind Simon Gregg.  Ruman is eager to be back in the car after the long six week break since the VIR race.

“I’ve been looking forward to another shot at Daytona,” stated Ruman, who was taken out of the race on the first lap last year. “It is only my second time here so I’m looking to improve my times and speed every session I’m out there.”

“We’ve had a lot of great racing this year in Trans Am and I know we’ll put on a good show at Daytona this weekend. We really wanted the Championship title and it just didn’t happen for us this year, so I’ll be aiming for a win and will continue to chase Gregg for 2nd place overall.”

Teams can participate in a promoter’s test day on Wednesday, November 12, 2014 and the official Trans Am weekend will start on Thursday. First practice session will be at 11:00 a.m. EST, followed by a second practice later in the day at 4:45 p.m. Trans Am qualifying will take place on Friday, at 11:30 a.m., with the TA2 and TA3 classes to follow separately at 12:30 p.m.  The 103.24 mile, 29-lap final race of the 2014 Trans Am Championship will begin at 10:30 a.m. Saturday morning.
