Driver Darren Law back home for Grand Am California 250

It will be a homecoming of sorts for veteran race driver Darren Law, as he returns to his native southern California to compete in the Grand American 400, a Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series endurance event to be held at California Speedway in Fontana the weekend of June 6-8. Law will be piloting the G&W prepared Valley Group/USI Insurance BMW powered Picchio in the Daytona Prototype class, and is excited about returning to southern California.

Said Law about his return, " It'll be great to get back to California and see all my old friends. I grew up and started my racing career in southern California, and I can still remember racing karts out at Adams kart track in Riverside."

Law is currently in 2nd place in the Daytona Prototype driver standings and is confident that the upcoming race will allow him to further solidify his position.

"The G&W crew has really worked hard at making sure we have a competitive car ,"said Law. "We had kind of a rough weekend in Birmingham, but we're determined to bounce back for this next race."

The 2.8 road racing course set up at California Speedway promises to show both the speed and handling versatility of the Daytona Prototype machines, and Law hopes to take full advantage of the track layout.

Darren had this to say about the track, "California Speedway is a terrific facility, both for the teams and the fans, and it is really fast. I wouldn't be surprised if we see speeds upwards of 165 mph on the banking, and I'm confident our BMW powerplant will keep us in the hunt."
