Martin and Camus take TA3, as 51 cars participate in Trans Am races
RJ Lopez and the #06 Disco Optical Lopez Chevrolet Corvette came away victorious from Round 2 of the 2014 Trans Am Championship at Homestead-Miami, his home track and first appearance in Trans Am since 2012.
“It’s a great feeling to win here at home in front of all my friends and family,” said Lopez. “I thought I was going to be in trouble; the car was wicked loose and the track was incredibly hot and slippery. I was really holding on, but I guess everyone was too. I’ve got to be honest with you, I felt like I had to win, with everyone here watching; but I’ve driven thousands of miles on this track, not in this car, but still. Our equipment was great—Meissen does a great job with these cars, and we got the job done!”
Lopez started the race on pole next to 2013 TA Champion Doug Peterson, in the #87 3Dimensional.com Chevrolet Corvette, with Cliff Ebben, in the #36 Stumpf Ford/McMahon Group Ford Mustang, and John Baucom, in the #86 Road Race Parts.com Ford Mustang, in the second row.
