Ruman Switches Gears To Join Trans-Am in Canada for Round 6 at Honda Indy Toronto Weekend
Munroe Falls, OH -- A very busy two months of racing will continue for the #23 McNichols Co./ Goodyear/Cenweld Chevrolet Corvette this weekend as Amy Ruman and the team head north of the U.S. border to Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Ruman has had 3 new track records, 4 GT-1 National wins and 7 top-5's this season--including a podium 3rd in the Road America Trans-Am race in June.
The SCCA Pro Racing Trans-Am series will join the IZOD IndyCar series along with five other sanctioned support races for the largest sporting event in Ontario. The races will be held on the streets of Exhibition Place, a unique site situated along the shores of Lake Ontario immediately west of downtown Toronto. Exhibition Place is home to more than 100 special events and trade and consumer shows annually. This will be Ruman's first time competing on the 1.765 mile (2.84 km), 11-turn temporary street course.
"This should be a really cool event to participate in," exclaimed Ruman. "It will be my first time running a street course in the #23 McNichols Corvette and I'm looking forward to the unique challenges of street racing. The Canadian fans are always great--as we know from racing at the Trans-Am Trois-Rivieres races with Bob Ruman in the driver's seat--so I know they will enjoy the show we put on for them."
