Mid-Ohio - Home Track Advantage?

ORISON - Planet Earth Motorsports heads to round 7 of the ROLEX Grand American Series at Mid Ohio Sports Car Course.

Mid-Ohio is the team's home track. Since the track is close to home, the team can test there quite frequently, securing the best possible set up. Also, the track is a favorite of the Nonnamaker family, making them extra quick there.

But does all of this add up to a home track advantage? In the tightly contested SGS class, any advantage, no matter how small, adds up on the track at the end of the day.

"We know that it is going to be tough at Mid-Ohio. Just because we won at the most recent event, held at Daytona, does not mean anything for the next race. So we have to go back out and maximize all areas so that we can hopefully be back on the podium here as well." States Crew Chief Mike Thomas.

Mid-Ohio marks the start of the 2nd half of the 12 race ROLEX series. Currently, ORISION's #41 Porsche is in 2nd place in the Team Championship. And ORISON's #42 is coming on strong at the 10th position. Plus, Joe and Wayne Nonnamaker are tied for 4th place in the Driver Championship.
