Norman, Oswald and TRG Head to Salt Lake City
Petaluma, CA (April 25, 2011) – Following a competitive first round of competition at the famed Sebring International Raceway, Dr. Jim Norman and Randy Oswald will return to the IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge for this weekend’s third and fourth rounds near Salt Lake City, Utah, at Miller Motorsports Park.
Randy Oswald, from Canada, had a stellar showing in the previous round at Sebring, including a top-five finish during the second race of the weekend. Headed in to this weekend’s rounds, all goals are set on continuing that streak.
“We had a great run at Sebring, and I’d really like to improve on our top-five,” stated Oswald. “As the week went on I felt like the team and I really understood what we needed from each other, and I think it will really show this weekend.”
Norman, who at Sebring ran double duty both in the IMSA GT3 Challenge as well as American Le Mans Series, will return as part of his full season effort in the series. Setting competitive lap times and showing that he’s not afraid to go wheel to wheel with the competition, Norman rounded out a successful weekend for the team with an eighth place during the second round at Sebring, and looks for greater glory this weekend.
“We had a great experience at Sebring and are looking for strong results this weekend,” stated Dr. Norman. “Everyone at TRG did a great job of getting the car and team ready, and I look forward to seeing us really make a strong run this weekend.”
For Team Owner Kevin Buckler, everyone is set for what should be a great weekend.
“Randy and Jim did a great job at Sebring, and I continue to be impressed with their delivery on track,” stated Buckler. “Both have been extremely focused and intent on moving up the grid, the kind of attitude that inspires us, and have both been a real joy to work with. The guys will do a great job putting a strong car under them at Miller, and I’m sure we’ll have a great weekend.”
Round three of IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge will take place this Saturday at 12:30PM MST, and the fourth round taking place the next day at 12:45PM MST.
