(Team Release) Homestead, FL – After coming off a podium finish in Round 1 of the Trans Am Championship at Sebring, a 9th place finish at Homestead-Miami was not the result the Ruman Racing team was hoping for.
In their first appearance at Homestead since 1998, beautiful weather greeted the Series back with open arms. However, the sunny South Florida weekend helped make for hot and slippery track conditions for the Trans Am drivers. Amy Ruman started with decent practice sessions placing 7th in the combined grid. Ruman saw improvement in her times in the Saturday qualifying session, moving her up to 5th for the start of Sunday's race. The Trans Am grid was tight all weekend, and in qualifying first though sixth were within a second of each other.
