Rick Ware Racing (RWR) is proud to announce that 2009 Trans Am Series Champion, and Rolex Grand Am Series and American Le Mans Series driver, Tomy Drissi is ready to take to the track at Watkins Glen.

Tomy Drissi will make his organizational debut at Watkins Glen, followed by the race at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, in Montreal.

Drissi will drive the #41 Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked/Muscle Milk, Ford Mustang at both remaining road courses for the organization and then the 50th running of the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona road race that strangely he has wanted to race his entire career but never given the opportunity until now.

Drissi finished 18th last year in his series debut at Montreal and has recently captured podiums in the American Le Mans Series at Lime Rock and Long Beach and tested a RWR Ford just last week.

“I am very excited to race at Watkins Glen and Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. I have done very well at these tracks in the past and I feel I have a great opportunity to run at the front in both races,” stated Drissi.

Drissi’s entrance into the RWR organization has been heavy anticipated. “We had to shake him down real good in these new cars and with the recent test, we feel that he is more than capable of running at the point in each race,” state Rick Ware, owner of RWR.

“Tomy will be one of our major features in the 50th running of the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona for 2012 for RWR. To get him in a car this early, no matter what kind, gives us a strong baseline of what he likes and needs to go fast. He is a great addition to our program.”
