As Trans Am makes its way East for the third race of the 2013 season, it brings with it a field far larger than any in recent years as the series continues to make progress in what has been a milestone season.
The Lime Rock entry is another step forward in a series of entry highs. Earlier this year at Sebring International Raceway, Trans Am featured a decade high entry of 38 cars. That effort was then followed up with a 28-car entry at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, which featured a record high 16-car TA2 entry. Now, the 29-field is another move in the right direction for the longest running road racing series in North America.
Plenty of drivers head towards Lime Rock with momentum, but none more so than Doug Peterson, driver of the #87 3Dimensional.com Chevrolet Corvette. Peterson comes into the Lime Rock weekend with three consecutive wins behind him, dating back to last year’s season finale at Road Atlanta.
“Our current run has just been awesome,” Peterson said. “I didn’t even realize we’ve won three in a row. I’m incredibly proud of the effort the team has put in. Tony Ave has prepared such a fast car and its been a lot of fun to drive and compete in.”
