Munroe Falls, Ohio – The Trans Am Series Championship Presented by Pirelli will be heading to Road Atlanta in Braselton, GA this weekend for Round 2 of the 2019 Championship and Speed Tour alongside SVRA. After finishing fifth in the season opener at Sebring, Ruman will eye the top step this weekend at Road Atlanta.
Ruman has captured three career victories at Road Atlanta driving the No. 23 McNichols Co. Corvette, including her historic first ever Trans Am win in 2011, and is looking to add one more to her victory column.
“Road Atlanta has traditionally been a really strong track for us and I’m expecting us to be smooth and fast here once again. My main goal is to be fast and consistent throughout the weekend so we can land ourselves back on the podium this year. I really enjoy racing here; the fans are always great, and the racing is always competitive because the track can get tricky as the race goes on and its very busy too!” remarked Ruman.
