Owen Trinkler Is Looking To Jumpstart Season In Grand AM: Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Series

Altamonte Springs, FL/April 8, 2010 - Racing star, Owen Trinkler is seeking to mount a strong rebound in the Grand AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Series at the Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama on Saturday, April 10, 2010. Barber, a course that has always been good to him, from what has been a rough start of the 2010 series season to date. His car will be car 196, a Mini Cooper S, sponsored by Cruise America/Grand Fondo Cycles and P1 Groupe.

"The past two races have been hard pills to swallow. First, at Daytona, we had a car that was very good but had electrical problems in the race," said Owen Trinkler. "Then we had another issue come up in test day at Homestead and we had a winning race car. From the get-go, I knew that was a car capable of contending. It's frustrating. It's a part of the sport that you know is there, but you still get frustrated when it happens to you when you know we can be at the front of the pack. The good thing is that we have had great race cars. The team has given me a my teammates a great car every weekend this year. That's the point we need to focus on."
