Ebben edges Peterson for fast lap, Lawrence sets pace in TA2
The Trans Am Series opened Round 2 of the 2014 Trans Am Championship with a late morning practice as the 52-car entry felt out the road course at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
In the TA class Cliff Ebben, in the #36 Stumpf Ford, McMahon Group Ford Mustang, led the way with a time of 1:25.043. In doing so, Ebben edged out the likes of TA Champion and Round 1 victor Doug Peterson, in the #87 3Dimensional.com Chevrolet Corvette, who put in a time of 1:25.300, and RJ Lopez, in the #06 Disco Optical Lopez Chevrolet Corvette, who rounded out the top three with a time of 1:25.31. This race will mark Lopez’s return to Trans Am after a yearlong hiatus, and will be his sixth Trans Am start. Lopez also won the 2011 Trans Am Race at Sebring International Raceway.
