Henri Richard Returns to TRG for Mosport

Petaluma, CA - Following several weeks of travel with business and sponsor commitments, Henri Richard will return to TRG for this weekend's Mobil 1 presents the Grand Prix of Mosport, the penultimate round of the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patron.

Joining Andy Lally in the no. 63 Freescale Semiconductor/Future Electronics/Green Hills Software/LifeStudio by Hitachi Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car, Richard will return with the team for the final two races as the duo pursues its second victory for the season.

For Richard, a return to the series is a great welcome home following several weeks of travel.

"I really look forward to getting back to North America," stated Richard. "Being so close to Toronto, our sponsors will have a lot of guests out for this race, and we look forward to putting on a good show for everyone. The team has had a rough couple of races but hopefully we can finish the season strong, the guys work very hard and deserve a good result."

Following a few challenging weekends in Mid-Ohio and Road America, Team Owner Kevin Buckler looks forward to attending the race in the hopes of improving fortune.

"I truly believe we have the best team in the paddock, but we've had a challenging few weeks especially after the win at Lime Rock," stated Buckler. "We had the fastest lap at Mid-Ohio, and the car and team were ready for the green flag at Road America after having to do some late night repairs, we really need to run a clean, solid race. Mosport is a classic track, and definitely one we look forward to competing at. TRG and myself as a driver had a BIG win here in 2002 at the ALMS race. We look forward to repeating that this weekend and we have the driver lineup and team to do it."
