AMY RUMAN BRINGS HOME A WIN AND BOB GRABS TWO TOP TEN'S AT NELSON LEDGES

Munroe Falls, OH - Amy Ruman needed to accomplish two things this past weekend at Nelson's Ledges - get a finish and get a win - she did both. In an exciting qualifier, Ruman and Ryan McManus battled it out for the pole position, trading spots several times during the session. Ruman came out on top by only two tenths over McManus and put the #23 McNichols Co./Goodyear/Cenweld Corvette on the pole.

The weather was great for a race on Saturday, and Ruman and McManus took the green. Ruman got out in front and took the lead by turn one with McManus hot on her tail. Each were faster then the other in different parts of the track, but Ruman led flag to flag for the win.

"That was a great race. Ryan filled my mirrors almost the whole race, and traffic played a big role during the race," commented Ruman. "This win was particularly satisfying because the competition was intense."

Bob Ruman tried his hand at racing the #23 McNichols Co./Dynasty Motorsports Spec Racer again, finishing both races in 9th position. In Saturday's race Ruman started 10th, and he battled it out with DG Lex nose to tail the whole race. Ruman started 8th on Sunday, and unfortunately got hit at the start of the race, slowing his momentum a bit.

"I had fun racing both days," stated Ruman. "This is why I like this class so much, no matter where you are in the field there is always someone to race against."

The team is headed to Watkins Glen this weekend, where Amy Ruman will compete in Round 6 of the Muscle Milk SCCA Trans-Am Series and Niki Ruman will take over the reigns of her Spec Racer for the National race.
