Tomy Drissi Geared Up for TransAm at Road America

Following his 5th place finish at Mid-Ohio, Tomy Drissi is ready to take on the America’s National Park of Speed, Road America. Driving the No. 8 Tony Ave Corvette, for Murder on the Orient Express (in theaters November 10), Tomy will be joining a field of 58 additional Trans Am competitors across the Series’ four classes and two 101.2-mile races, the Trans Am Road America Classic, featuring the TA, TA3 and TA4 classes, and the Road America Muscle Car Challenge, featuring the TA2 class.  
Joining Trans Am at Road America this weekend are NASCAR Xfinity, holding its Johnsonville 180, and the ACRA Racing Series.  

“I’m really looking forward to the weekend,” noted Tomy. “Road America is one of those tracks, as a driver, you just love to drive. It’s not unlike getting on the best ride in an amusement park, you can’t wait until you get to go again. It’s challenging, it’s fast… and if you get it right, it’s really fast.”

“It’s been a few years since I’ve lapped Road America in a sports car,” added Tomy. “My last few visits I ran with NASCAR. So, it’ll be nice to pilot a TransAm car with plenty of power and good handling. It’s going to be fun.”

Murder on the Orient Express [In theaters November 10] Starring Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer, a lavish train ride unfolds into a stylish & suspenseful mystery. From the novel by Agatha Christie and directed by Kenneth Branagh, Murder on the Orient Express tells of thirteen stranded strangers & one man's race to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again.
