Sunday Group Media Notes, Barber Motorsports Park (Rolex Series)

Rolex Sports Car Series:

Podium return for Michael Shank Racing? Despite taking two top ten finishes in the first two races of the year and sitting sixth in the team championship standings, Michael Shank Racing drivers Ozz Negri and John Pew haven’t had the start to the year that the duo were hoping for. But racing the No. 60 Crown Royal Ford-Riley for a team that has made a habit of podium appearances at the picturesque track (2005, 2008, 2009, and 2010), the duo will look to make the most of the weekend. Between races, both Negri and Pew have been actively keeping sharp with lap after lap of practice on karts.

Racing Brothers, part two (Frisselles):

Burt and Brian Frisselle have raced with each other, against each other, and around each other for years.

This weekend, the duo will be fighting it out on track as Burt returns to AIM Autosport once again. The Canadian team returned to Rolex Series competition at Homestead and was right on the pace with a run to fourth place. The team just announced a new sponsor (GAMMA88) and will be primed for success.

Brian, who has four Rolex Series wins to his credit, will race with Doran Racing in the No. 77 Office Depot Dallara. Frisselle’s co-driver crashed out out of the Homestead race after the entry got off to a very fast start to the event. Running in a pro-am driver pairing, Burt will look to make the most of the Barber weekend as the NO. 77 fights back in the championship standings.

The two brothers have been keeping busy with some high-altitude training in Aspen–ride along here:
