21 June 2011-There are some drivers that are very particular about their surroundings, needing everything to be perfect and familiar in order to perform. From the way the seat insert feels, to where the radio button is placed on the steering wheel, every little detail has to be sorted out before the driver can concentrate on going fast.

But that’s not the case with Burt Frisselle, who has shown time and time again that he has the speed and adaptability to just jump into any car and simply make it go fast.

That quick turn will be on display once again this weekend as the Colorado resident returns to his normal ride with AIM Autosport as the Daytona Prototypes invade Road America for the first time in series history when GRAND-AM partners with the NASCAR Nationwide Series.

Powered by support from new partner GAMMA88 (http://www.gamma88.com) Frisselle and his co-driver Mark Wilkins will look to return to the form that has seen the duo show remarkable speed despite not having a regular schedule of outings this season.

The last time out, in the legendary Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen, Frisselle was once again in fighting form as he led the field with the Action Express Riley, the second time this season he has ran to the front of the pack for the team and the third different time for him to lead in Rolex Series competition this year.

This weekend, Frisselle returns to familiar surroundings as the series ventures to a new location. The Road America visit is the first for the Daytona Prototypes, and Frisselle can’t wait.

“I’m excited to be back with AIM again this weekend and having GAMMA88 with us, we are looking forward to representing them as well as we can here, at Watkins Glen, and in Montreal,” said Frisselle. “I enjoy the challenge of working with different teams and just focusing on getting in the car and going quickly, but of course it is great to be surrounded by all the familiar faces at AIM again.”

Wilkins and Frisselle have proven potent this year, netting two fourth place positions as they target a run to the podium this Saturday.

“The Rolex Series is so competitive and there are teams like Ganassi operating at the absolute top of their game right now. So for AIM to be showing up with the competitive package that they have been, is really quite impressive. We’ve led races and have had some solid finishes, and really if it weren’t for a little luck could have had a couple of podiums. So I’m optimistic that we can do that again this weekend. Running at a track for the first time kind of levels the playing field a bit, and that will hopefully only play into our hands this weekend.”

The weekend opens with a promoter test day, with the race slated for a live SPEED airing starting at 12:00 PM ET on Saturday.
