This weekend I'll be joining my good friends Jeff Segal and Emil Assentato for the Grand-Am Rolex Series Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen, driving the 2010 Championship-winning No. 69 FXDD/SpeedSource Mazda RX-8 GT!
Jeff and I have become close over the recent years working together for various driving programs, including my Cosmo-Sport track events, as well as racing against each other in Grand-Am events. I've known Emil since my very early days of racing, having met him through a mutual friend who was extremely dear to us, the late Joe Stimola. Jeff and Emil have been a very strong combo for the past number of years and are looking to defend thier championship from 2010.
SpeedSource is a team I've been close to for the past 8 years now, who have realized an incredible amount of success in Grand-Am, however I've never actually driven for them yet. I'm very excited to join them all this weekend!
As usual I'll continue my duties driving for BGB Motorsports in the Continental Tire Challenge race on Friday, after a full day of testing / qualifying in the No. 69 Mazda - then 6 hours of racing on Saturday!
Stay tuned for hourly updates via my Twitter account (@GuyCosmo) and watch the race live on SPEED this Saturday at 4:30pm!
