Gregg Keeps Trans-Am Momentum Going

LEXINGTON, Ohio – Simon Gregg picked up his second Trans-Am Series victory in his 100th start Saturday at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

“This is fantastic,” said Gregg. “It’s just an amazing feeling. I’m so happy for our team and the crew. Those guys deserve all the credit. They work so hard.”

Simon was chased most of the day by Amy Ruman from in the No. 23 McNichols Corvette. Ruman made a valiant effort in front of her hometown crowd, but as the race wore on, the car’s handle slowly got away from her.

In third place, making his first appearance of 2012, was Denny Lamers in the No. 66 McMahon Group Ford Mustang.

In Trans Am 2 Bob Stretch enjoyed a repeat victory driving the No. 98 Fix Rim Mobile Wheel Repair Camaro. Following his win at Lime Rock, Stretch was pleased but disappointed in not having the opportunity to win against Pete Halsmer.

Halsmer withdrew from the race Saturday citing back problems resulting from a preexisting condition.

“As much as I enjoy winning,” said Stretch. “I really missed racing against Pete. He’s such a great competitor and it would have been nice having him back there pushing me. You always want to race and win against the best, and I hope Pete’s back in the car soon. I was glad to see Pete’s teammate Mike Miller finish second and have that team enjoy a strong showing. They’re good competitors and great for the Series.”
