Rather than waiting until next year, the Miller Racing team is switching mid-season to the new Dodge Challenger SRT Trans Am racer you see here, just in time for this weekend's race at Mid-Ohio. And not just that – it's lined up a compelling pair of drivers to pilot it, as well.
Miller Racing http://millerracing.org/ fielded two of these racers today, with four-time series champion Tommy Kendall returning to the TA2 class for the first time in a decade. While Kendall will drive Number 11, the Number 1 car will be piloted by Cameron Lawrence, last year’s Mid-Ohio Trans Am race winner. Under the hood is a 6.3-liter naturally-aspirated V8 rated at 499 hp mated to a four-speed manual. http://www.autospies.com/news/Dodge-Returns-To-Trans-Am-Racing-With-Challenger-SRT-200-HP-LESS-Than-A-Hellcat-82422/
Andretti's win helped him close the gap on current points leader and defending TA2 Champion Cameron Lawrence, driver of the No. 1 Miller Racing Dodge Challenger SRT. Lawrence joined four-time Trans Am Champion Tommy Kendall this week in debuting the Dodge Challenger in the TA2 class and still holds the TA2 points lead, with 206 points to Andretti's. "I'm incredibly proud of the team for getting here to the Mid-Ohio track for our first Trans Am race," said Russ Ruedisueli, head of SRT and motorsports engineering, SRT Motorsports. "The team worked incredibly hard to get here when you're coming to the race with a new car and motors. It was pretty brave. I think we're all a little disappointed in the finish, although Cameron did an awesome job getting us up to 10th. Tommy ran a strong race too, even though he was unable to finish just a few laps from the end. Alll in all, it was a pretty good weekend. We'll take a look and regroup for the next race at Brainerd." http://www.racer.com/latest-stories/item/107486-trans-am-doug-peterson-continues-championship-charge-at-mid-ohio
