TRG eagerly anticipates double-header at The Glen
Watkins Glen, NY (August 11th, 2011) - Following a noteworthy performance at their "home track," Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, TRG rejoins the Grand-Am Rolex Series this weekend with a strong one-two punch at the historic Watkins Glen International.
Daytona 24 winner Steve Bertheau will be back with co-driver Spencer Pumpelly. They will pilot the No. 67 Sargent & Lundy/TRG Porsche GT3 Cup. Earlier this season, Bertheau and Pumpelly earned a podium spot at Road America, with a strong car that led much of the race. Pumpelly, meanwhile, is fresh off an American Le Mans Series win at Mid-Ohio a week ago.
"Spence and I work well together," said Bertheau. "We came so close at Road America, and we would like to reel one in for TRG here at this historic track."
Joining the No. 67 Sargent & Lundy/TRG Porsche GT3 Cup on the grid will be the No. 66 Racer's Roast/Fox River Coffee/TRG Porsche GT3 Cup. Driving the No. 66 car will be Duncan Ende and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Andy Lally. Riding the momentum off two straight victories in ALMS GTC class, Ende looks forward to the pairing with seasoned sportscar veteran Lally.
