Phil CavaliTrans Am Champion, Tomy Drissi, turned in a solid run at this weekend's Monster Energy event at Sonoma Raceway. Teamed up with StarCom Racing, Tomy continued his partnership with GoShare as the primary sponsor for StarCom Racing #00 Chevy.

“I’m pleased with our result for the weekend,” noted Tomy. “We came into the event with realistic expectations and I think we met them. Sonoma Raceway is one of the the most technical tracks in the North America. It was one tough race with the toughest teams and drivers in the world. We had some good runs out there........ I learned a lot that will make us better the next time. Obviously, this is one of the most competitive series in the world. Given the talent and budgets, it’s important the team sets attainable goals. I couldn’t be happier with StarCom Racing. The crew worked hard and gave me a good reliable car. We stayed out of trouble and brought the car home intact.”

“I was extremely proud to represent GoShare on the #00 Chevy, added Tomy. “The Camaro featured the same livery as our Trans Am Camaro which is based on the livery of my 1970 vintage Chaparral Camaro. I think the car looked great!”

“I had a lot of confidence in the StarCom team and their preparation of the car,” Tomy continued. “Running among the quality of talent in NASCAR puts a lot of demand on every member of the team. I want to especially thank Elyshia and  Derrick Cope, StarCom, GoShare, the Arthritis Foundation and all the folks that support this team and a special thank  you to  Cladio Burtin for helping coordinate this ride.

SCR was formed by a collective group of seasoned NASCAR specialists, as well as successful business entrepreneurs from SCR's parent company, StarCom Fiber.
