Owen Trinkler and his RSR Motorsports team heads into this weekends' Koni Challenge Series race at Homestead-Miami Speedway looking for the results that escaped them at the season opener in Daytona in January.

Trinkler spent the short break between races with new twists off the race track as he spent Valentine's Day saying "I do!" to his new bride and honeymooning in sunny Mexico. Owen now heads to the track with a renewed enthusiasm and support for this weekends' race in his #196 Mini Cooper S.

"It feels really good to be heading back to Homestead this weekend. I need to rebound back from a rough outing in Daytona and there's no better place to do that at track that I have had success in the past" states Trinkler. "This is important race also because Cruise America once called South Florida its home that gives me added incentive to get a great finish for them as well as myself."

Owen knows that if he and team mate Jade Buford hope to have any shot at a Championship run, they have some catching up to do on the series leaders. "The last race at Daytona was extremely disappointing and we've dug ourselves a hole in the standings, but it's early in the year and I've got a great group of people behind me. All their support gives me the confidence I need heading into this weekend."
