Munroe Falls, OH – Coming off a very successful season last year, Amy Ruman and Ruman Racing will be back in action to compete again in the 2011 SCCA Pro Racing Trans-Am Series and SCCA GT-1 National venues. Ruman returns to Trans-Am driving her trademark red #23 McNichols Co./Goodyear/Cenweld Chevrolet Corvette.

Ruman’s long time primary sponsor, McNichols Co., is returning for another season with the Ruman Racing team. This marks the 10 year anniversary of sponsor partnership between McNichols Company and the Ruman Racing team.

“I can’t believe we are entering into our 10th consecutive year together with McNichols Company! Our partnership throughout the years with McNichols has really developed into a “HOLE PERFORMANCE” package,” exclaimed Ruman.

McNichols Co., headquartered in Tampa, FL, is the largest U.S. distributor of “Hole” products with service centers across North America. McNichols' product selection is the most diverse in the industry. McNichols stocks perforated products, both metal and plastic. A toll free number 800-237-3820 connects you to the McNichols Co. distributor in your area and the company’s extensive website,, has online customer service and online ordering.

Goodyear Tire & Rubber is backing Ruman as a tire sponsor again. Cenweld Corp., a well-established manufacturer and distributor of truck bodies and equipment throughout Ohio, is also returning as a sponsor.

Trans-Am at Sebring

Ruman and the team are headed to Florida on Monday to compete in Trans-Am Round 1, which is part of the famous American Le Mans Series 59th running of the Twelve Hours of Sebring race week.

“Sebring couldn’t be a better race to start off the season since McNichols is headquartered in Florida. We know we’ll put on a great show for them as well as the other fans at the 12 Hours of Sebring race week. “We are really looking forward to Amy and the team competing so close by,” said McNichols Vice President Steven McNichols, who will be attending Friday’s race.

At Sebring, Ruman will take to the track for two test sessions on Tuesday March 8th, followed by a practice session Wednesday afternoon. Qualifying will be Thursday morning and start of the 100 mile Trans-Am race will be Friday morning at 9:10am.
