Around the World and Back, RHR Ready to Return to Laguna Seca

Our staff has worked in every form of Motorsports, from Formula One, to the NHRA, Nextel Cup to the AMA.

Party in the Streets with HVM and RHR:Herdez Competition and their drivers Ryan Hunter-Reay and Mario Dominguez will participate in the Bridgestone Street Party Friday night on Alvarado Street in downtown Monterey. The team will have a racecar on hand for fans to test their Bridgestone Champ Car tire-changing skills as well as a booth with free Herdez Salsa samples and giveaways. Both Ryan Hunter-Reay and Mario Dominguez will be signing autographs and answering questions at the booth from 8:00 -- 8:30.

Ryan on Laguna Seca: "Laguna Seca is one of my favorite racetracks. I earned my first pole and first victory there in Atlantics so I have great memories there. It is a very challenging racetrack; it is more of a rhythm track, on the same level as Mid-Ohio. There is a fast right-hander at the bottom of the hill, after the corkscrew that I really enjoy. It is been a crazy time since we were in Montreal, I've been to Australia and back to help kick off the promotions for the Lexmark Indy so I am excited and anxious to get back in my racecar."
