AMY RUMAN CRUISES TO EASY WIN AT BEAVERUN

Munroe Falls, OH - Amy Ruman cruised the #23 McNichols Corvette to an easy third victory of the season at BeaveRun Motorsports Complex in Pennsylvania last weekend. Ruman only faced one other GT-1 on Saturday, Bill Rozmajzl, whose car broke during the second qualifier on Saturday. He was unable to get it fixed for the race, so Ruman was the sole GT-1 competitor.

The team followed a conservative strategy and raced 18 laps of the 30 lap race, while starting on the pole. The rules state that if a driver finishes more than half of a race, it is a race completion. In this case, Ruman was able to finish half the laps and win the GT-1 class for the weekend.

"Unfortunately, not many GT-1 guys showed up for this race! I felt really bad for Bill; he broke the rear-end and that was it for him. We decided as a team to just grab the points and the win, rather than wear down the car racing against myself. I tried to get the track record, but the track was just too hot and greasy by late afternoon," exclaimed Ruman. "It would have been fun to battle with some others, but I guess we will just take the easy win this time."

Ruman remains solidly leading the GT-1 Northeast Division 2007 points chase.

Next up: July 15: National at Watkins Glen International Speedway, NY
