Bailey Returns to Grand Am Cup Action at Laguna Seca this weekend
Monterey, Calif. - Brian Bailey of Southlake, Texas, returns to the Grand Am Cup Series for this weekend's U.S. Sports Car Invitational at the challenging Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. It was February 4th at the Daytona Motor Speedway that Bailey last drove for the Autometrics Motorsports Porsche team. Bailey looks forward to returning to the Porsche 996 for the remainder of the season. "I'm very excited to get the Autometrics Motorsports Porsche 996 back onto a traditional road course. I think our car is one of the best handling in the series as our performance in the infield at Daytona showed," stated Bailey. The team qualified in 29th position but moved through the pack to finish in a respectable 16th position. "Because the banking at Daytona takes up a significant amount of your lap time, our car's horsepower did not allow us to be competitive up front. Laguna Seca will better suit our team and car. Therefore I have high hopes for this coming weekend," said Bailey.
"Jay Brown will again be joining the Autometrics Motorsports team this weekend as my co-driver, replacing Cory Friedman for this round. I am really excited to have Jay co-driving with us again. He's a very talented up and coming young driver and I have very high expectations. He had a good run at Fontana several weeks ago and with the performance adjustments the series has made since then, I think we'll be a team to watch out for," said Bailey. "Autometrics Motorsports has put together a great car and I am looking forward to being in the thick of the fight this weekend. With approximately 70 cars entered and 46 in our class, it is going to be a dog fight at the front all weekend," exclaimed Bailey.
