LNS Charges Into the VIR-200

April 3rd, 2006 - Knoxville, TN- LNS Motorsports has announced that FormulaTR regular Derek Sabol will complete the driver lineup for the upcoming Grand Am-Cup VIR-200 at Virginia International Raceway on April 22nd. Sabol will share the "Skin Wellnes Center" sponsored #89 Porsche 996 with Frank Rossi (Kleinburg, ON, Canada) while Barry Ellis (Ft.Lauderdale, FLA) and Fraser Wellon (Mississauga, ON, Canada) will once again team up in the "Hop-A-Jet" sponsored #88 Porsche 996. LNS Motorsports looks to improve upon their effort of a 9th and 24th place finish at the season opener in Daytona earlier this year.

Sabol, a young and talented racer from Lake Havasu, AZ, has primarily raced open wheel cars. In 2005 Sabol won the FormulaTR season opener in Fontana, California and was on the podium for all but one of the races.

In January of 2006, Sabol drove a Porsche 996 for Team Sahlen in the season opener at Daytona. Sabol led the race for two laps and finished the race in 27th place.

LNS Motorsports team owner Mike Grande is excited with the addition of the young driver. "The team hopes that with the energy and competitiveness that Derek brings, we will have a strong performance in the VIR-200."

LNS Motorsports is a privately funded professional race team based in Knoxville, TN.
