Lime Rock Will Be First Road Course Race for Zach Germain
Mooresville, N.C. (June 30, 2010) -- Zach Germain is very pleased with the variety of race tracks that are represented by the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East. The rookie driver will make his road course debut this weekend at Lime Rock Park, just a week after racing on the second of three Sprint Cup Series race tracks on the K&N Pro Series. Germain thinks his team is ready for the challenge of turning right and left at Lime Rock.
"With what this Germain.com Camry team has been able to accomplish in the last two races, I am very confident that we can have a good race weekend at Lime Rock. The track is another unique race course that is part of why the K&N Pro Series East has such a strong field of rookie contenders. Driving in this series gives sponsors exposure on SPEED and it gives drivers and teams experience with a wide variety of race tracks to prepare them for their NASCAR careers," said Germain.
In preparation for the Lime Rock race weekend, Germain, a graduate of Miami University of Ohio, has gone back to school.
"I've enrolled in the Skip Barber Racing School at Lime Rock and the program has been amazing. All of the tracks we race in the K&N Pro Series are new to me, so usually I will try to prepare on a simulator, or to go through notes from our Germain Racing teams. For Lime Rock, the experience has been much different. We had classroom time, then ride-along time before we drove on the course. One of the Skip Barber instructors is a former East Series driver who has competed at Lime Rock, so the information I've been able to learn has given me a lot of comfort heading into the race weekend," said Germain.
With Germain Racing's No. 30 Germain.com Tundra team off this weekend, Tom Ackerman, shock specialist for the points-leading truck, will travel to Lime Rock to work with the No. 24 Germain.com Camry team.
"This will be the second time Tom has been a part of our race team this season. He came to Martinsville Speedway along with several of our teammates from the 30 truck. Tom has been a crew chief in the Truck Series, he's won races, and he's a tireless team player. I know the guys are excited about having him along this weekend at Lime Rock," said Germain.
