Frisselle Brothers Gear Up for Double Duty in 2007: The Brother Duo Returns to Rolex Series while also Making Debut in NASCAR Whelen All-American Series
(Aspen, CO)--19 January 06- Burt and Brian Frisselle are just one week away from launching into the 2007 race season. The brother duo, who raced together as teammates in both the 2005 and 2006 Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series with Synergy Racing, will once again return to the series as teammates. This year Burt and Brian will drive for AIM Autosport and will share the second seat in the No.61 Riley powered Lexus Daytona Prototype, taking turns co-piloting with teammate Mark Wilkins.
The 2007 season kicks off for the Frisselle brothers at the Rolex 24 At Daytona, which will mark their third consecutive Rolex 24 start together. Burt and Brian will race along with teammate Mark Wilkins and two-time Toyota Atlantic Champion David Empringham, and the brothers are thrilled to be a part of the AIM Autosport team.
"AIM runs a top-notch operation in everything they do and both Burt and I are very excited to be working with them this season," said Brian. "Our performance at the test days demonstrates how hard this team is working to make a competitive debut at the 24 Hour, and I believe that we will. I'm looking forward to a great season and I'm confident that we will achieve good results."
The Frisselle brothers will not only race as teammates this season, they will be competitors as well. In addition to their Rolex commitment, Burt and Brian will begin their climb of the NASCAR development ladder as they make their debut in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series. The Frisselle brothers will both be racing for Stacy Compton's team, but will be competing against each other in separate cars. Burt and Brian will be driving in Division I, competing each weekend to earn enough points to race in the NASCAR Whelen Weekly Series Divisional and National championships.
"Brian and I are very grateful that the opportunity to race in this competitive development series has come our way. We both dream of racing a Cup car one day, and this is our first step in reaching that goal. I am looking forward to a very busy and rewarding season," Burt stated.
As the Frisselle brothers look ahead to what will certainly be a hectic season, they are more thankful than ever for their partnerships with CDOC, their equipment provider, and Performance Drink. "We are very grateful to continue our partnerships with both CDOC and Performance Drink in 2007," Burt commented. "CDOC provides us with essential racing equipment, everything from our driver suits to our shoes," Brian stated, "and I can't even imagine getting in the car without Performance Drink. It is a truly superior product that allows Burt and I to achieve optimal performance behind the wheel."
