Muniz, Skerlong Ready for Action at Mt. Tremblant
Off to a Strong Start: Carl Skerlong heads to Mont Tremblant with his first front-row start and first podium of the 2008 season on his resume. Skerlong started and finished second at Laguna Seca. Muniz is looking to break-in to the top-ten for the first time this season. He came close last month at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca when he finished 13th.
Keeping Busy: The PCM Atlantic drivers have been keeping their skills sharp with go-karts since the last month's event at Laguna Seca. Skerlong has been competing in the Rotax karting series while Muniz is getting acquainted with a new kart track in Arizona. Muniz recently bought a home in Scottsdale, Arizona and will spend part of the year there.

Carl on Tremblant: "I can't wait to get back to Atlantic competition, especially at a track like Mont Tremblant. We had a strong run finishing second at Laguna and I am looking forward to taking that momentum with me to Quebec. The track is terrific, I especially enjoy the chicane. There are so many ways to get extra speed through there, it is a real challenge. I hope to score my first victory in the King Taco car at Mont Tremblant this weekend and strengthen our position in the championship."

Frankie on Tremblant: "I am definitely ready to get back racing. These long breaks are challenging because I want to stay focused on the season and our continued improvements on track. I've been training a lot at the gym and at the karting track. I've also been playing a lot of racing video games to stay focused. The Mont Tremblant circuit is incredible, very fast and very challenging, like a true European road racing circuit. I am looking forward to working with my engineer Tim Lewis and coach Lee Benthem, we have a couple of test sessions Friday which will be great for me for the weekend. I am still learning so much, this is drivers track and I am sure they will have a ton of valuable input for me this weekend."
