Meyer Motorsports Charging To Mid-Ohio

COLUMBIA, SC (June 17, 2008) --Meyer Motorsports' second KONI Challenge event was this past weekend as the series traveled north to Mosport. The team had some mixed fortune although the #16 RamTECH entry was able to put together a solid run to the checkered finishing in 16th place.

One of the many highlights for Meyer Motorsports at Mosport was team chemistry. The team really gelled and was able to work as a team. All of the team members worked hard on and off of the track and knew their roles and executed. Mechanically the cars were sound and the handling was awesome for the team's Mazda's. "Seeing the guys come together and work well as a team is a really neat thing," commented owner and driver Eric Meyer, "They worked hard to make sure the cars were in the best possible condition and communicated well with the drivers to make things even better."

Due to unfortunate circumstances at Mosport, Meyer Motorsports has decided to focus all of its energy on the #16 RamTECH entry driven by veteran Andy Brumbaugh and series rookie Sam Stuard for the next few weeks. This will really allow the team to fully develop the car and learn much more. Having the crew focus everything on one car instead of splitting the time and effort between two cars will allow everyone to have a better understanding of what makes these cars go fast and be competitive. When the #30 Mazda rejoins the series in a few races, the team will know it is absolutely ready and competitive.

This weekend is Mid-Ohio, a favorite for many drivers and teams in the KONI Challenge. A field of 51 cars has entered the event and it is sure to provide lots of close racing. "Mid-Ohio is one of my favorite tracks, I was born in Ohio and usually have friends and family attend this event. I have always been competitive at this track and I see no reason why we can't be up front this coming weekend," said RamTECH driver Andy Brumbaugh. Meyer Motorsports and RamTECH are confident that the #16 Mazda will be near the front of the grid for this weekends race.
