Brian Frisselle Heads West for Rolex Sports Car Series Race after Week at Boggy Creek
The GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series took a two-week break following the last round at Road America and Brian Frisselle took advantage of the time off to head to Orlando, Florida and Camp Boggy Creek – the official charity of GRAND-AM.
Frisselle and brother Burt Frisselle spent the week volunteering as camp counselors with children who have immune deficiency disorders. The Frisselles took part in activities such as swimming lessons, dances, high-energy meals, skits and the “Silly Olympics.”
“Camp Boggy Creek is such a special place,” said Frisselle of his weeklong session. “There are kids challenging themselves in new ways every day and accomplishing things that before camp they never thought they would. There is this magic that happens at camp because the kids are in an environment where they feel safe, respected and loved. It was a great week and I was honored to spend time with such amazing kids.”
As Frisselle ends his week at Camp Boggy Creek, he returns to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca this weekend for the Continental Tire Sports Car Festival Powered by Mazda and Round 8 of the championship with years of experience at the 2.238-mile California road course.
Frisselle follows up a strong performance at the circuit when GRAND-AM last visited Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in 2009. The Colorado driver set a blistering fast lap time in qualifying to start the race on the outside of the front row and stood on the podium when he and SunTrust Racing co-driver Max Angelelli drove to a third place finish in the No. 10 Daytona Prototype.
Frisselle and Doran Racing co-driver Henri Richard have not had the season they had hoped for throughout the first seven races with a season-best finish of fifth in the Bosch Engineering 250 at Virginia International Raceway, but the duo hopes to turn their luck around as they return to a track that they both enjoy.
“Laguna Seca is one of my favorite tracks,” said Frisselle. “It’s also Henri’s (Richard) home track so we’re really looking forward to going back. Hopefully a little luck comes our way and we can get the Office Depot machine back up front.”
