MULTIMATIC MOTORSPORTS LOOKING TO BOUNCE BACK AT WATKINS GLEN

Multimatic Motorsports has been working around the clock preparing for the second of back-to-back races when it heads to Watkins Glen International (June 4 - 5) for the Continental Tire 150 at The Glen.

The historic circuit is amongst the favorite tracks of many racecar drivers and it's no different for the four Multimatic Motorsports pilots. Scott Maxwell, Joe Foster, Gunnar Jeannette and Frankie Montecalvo are all enthusiastic about heading to the 3.4-mile, 11-turn road course.

They not only have a preference for the circuit because it is more of a 'driver's track' but its fast and flowing configuration should be a perfect match for the Ford Mustang Boss 302R.

After posting some disappointing results in the previous rounds of the GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, the Multimatic Motorsports team is looking for a different result at The Glen, one that more reflects the proven speed of the Boss 302R, and skill of the drivers and team.

The team will be looking to get on the podium at The Glen, and also to continue its streak of front row starts. The #15 car has started either on pole position (Homestead and Barber Motorsports Park) or beside it at all races this season.

15 car on track The duo of Maxwell and Foster is eager to build on the previous success they have had at Watkins Glen International whilst Jeannette and Montecalvo are hoping to create some positive memories of their own.

With only a few days between events, Multimatic Motorsports has been busy getting their cars ready after a bruising race at Lime Rock.

Joe Foster, #15 Ford Mustang Boss 302R
"I'm looking forward to the Watkins Glen race. I really like that track because it's a really cool, fast and scary place and there is a lot of history there. I think we have a good car for that road course and we've done well there in the past so hopefully we can continue to build on that."

Scott Maxwell, #15 Ford Mustang Boss 302R
"I really enjoy the Watkins Glen circuit so I am looking forward to this weekend. Personally I love the track. It's a driver's track, it's fast and flowing and it's a fun place to drive. It's been a few years since I've won there but for the longest time every time I was there we would pretty much either win or be on the podium so I have very fond memories of the track and I hope I can add to those memories."

Frankie Montecalvo, #16 Bayshore Recycling Ford Mustang Boss 302R
"Watkins Glen is such a great track and I'm pretty excited to go there with the Mustang Boss 302R. I think the Mustang will do very well because of the track configuration. It should be a fun race."

Gunnar Jeannette, #16 Bayshore Recycling Ford Mustang Boss 302R
"I can't wait to get to Watkins Glen. It's a track that we've always previously been strong at and it's one of my favorite tracks in the US. I think the characteristics of the track should suit our car very well so hopefully we can expect good things."
