“This is going to be an incredible weekend,” noted Tomy. “Racing at the Brickyard is always a special occasion for any driver. But looking at this week’s entry list, Trans Am has attracted a star studded list of entries across all of its classes.”

“The TA class will see the return of Boris Said,” added Tomy. “We haven’t seen Boris in a TA car since 2005. It’ll be great having him in the field.”

“The Burtin Racing crew will be fielding two Camaros this weekend,” Tomy continued. “Lawrence Loshak will be driving the No. 2 Pennzoil / GoShare Camaro… hopefully, working together, we’ll be able to gather twice the data through practice.”

In addition to racing for the overall TA win, Tomy will also be going for the Trans Am West win, accumulating points for his championship campaign. The Berryman Trans Am at the Brickyard is a combined event for the Series.
