Fast Facts:

Another Tally in the Win Column:  Sloan scored his fifth win of the season last month at his home event at the Utah Motorsports Campus in front of hundreds of sponsors, friends and family.  It was a stellar performance, he took the green flag from third and charged to the lead with a beautiful pass on the front straight, right in front of the pit row suite occupied by his supporters!

 

By the Stats: Sloan has won 31% of the races, started on pole 43% of the time and finished second in 50% of the events so far. With three races to go, he sits second in the Championship.

Another Championship for TruSpeed Autosport: It’s back to back weekends at Sonoma Raceway for the TruSpeed Autosport team.  Led by team owner Tyler Tadevic, the California based team won the Pirelli Cup Masters Championship and the overall championship in the 997 Category last weekend at Sonoma.

Sloan Urry on the Sonoma Raceway: “I can’t wait to get back in the car – I’m pumped! Sonoma is one of the more difficult road courses, in that as a driver, you never really have a break.  It’s pretty constant in turns, elevation changes and off-camber corners, with much of a straight-away in between, so it’s very busy. That being said, I love that track for those reasons, it’s technical, tricky and fun, especially the hairpin at turn seven and into the esses.”
