Altamonte Springs, FL – RSR Motorsports and P1 Groupe driver Owen Trinkler entered into the gates of Daytona International Speedway looking to start the season off with a strong finish.
The Nashville native, who is also Team Manager at RSR, has been winning in every car he has driven over his successful career.
With a young and fast co-driver in Corey Fergus with him for the year, this could be the time Trinkler captures the GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Series Street Tuner title.
The veteran Trinkler jumped in after his co-driver had had enough seat time to secure points. The team would go one lap down to the leaders, before gaining it back on a late caution flag.
Even though there were times it seemed like the finish would be low, Trinkler would fight his way to a Top-15 finish in 12th.
“The car was actually very good" Trinkler stated. "Corey did a great job during qualifying and his stint, giving us a chance for a good finish. We were able to claw our way back to for a twelfth-place finish, and even though it wasn't what we wanted, it is a point for us to build off of."
Owen Trinkler currently sits 12th in official CTSCC Driver Points Championship Standings, while RSR Motorsports currently sit 12th in Official CTSCC Team Points Championship Standings.
