Just off an outstanding 2nd place finish with the ALMS at Long Beach, Drissi will drive the #37 Rise of the Planet of the Apes Ford this weekend and then the NASCAR Nationwide Series at Watkins Glen and Montreal later this season. Additionally, Drissi will race the 50th running of the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, an event he has wanted to race his entire career but not had the right opportunity until now.

“Having Tomy Drissi in the No. 37 car is exciting,” stated both Larry Gunsleman and Rick Ware. “We have watched Tomy race his entire career. Being able to put him into the No. 37 and bring him to our NASCAR program will provide another avenue for our collective marketing partners.”

"I'm really excited and looking forward to this opportunity," said Tomy Drissi. "We think this will provide our sponsors, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Muscle Milk, with fantastic exposure to a much wider audience. I really appreciate the effort Rick Ware and Larry Gunsleman have put into bring me into their program."
