Owen Trinkler Daytona Race Preview

Owen Trinkler finished off the 2008 Koni Challenge season the way he's looking to start off the new 2009 season, with a top-5 result. Armed with a competitive team effort comprised of three Mini Cooper S's, Owen is certainly positive about the potential outcome of the first event of the new season.

"I'm really excited about the opportunity to run with RSR Motorsports for the full season again this year. We have a great team and we're all very comfortable with Mini Cooper S package." Trinkler continues: "It's great to have one of the best owners in the Koni paddock because Randy Smalley is 100% behind us. This team has so many guys who have been here from the start, that everything is seamless and well organized. It's a great environment and that kind of organization can contend for the ST Championship in 09."

The team is equally aware of what Owen will bring to the table for the team in the 2009 season as Team Owner Randy Smalley states: "I'm very excited to be back at Daytona for the start of the new Koni Challenge season. Daytona is always my favorite circuit on the schedule. I couldn't be happier having Owen back in the #196 Mini Cooper S, sharing the car with Jade. That pairing will be one of the most competitive lineups in the field and we're all very hopeful for a successful 2009 racing season.
