“I believe we have the opportunity this weekend to shake things up a bit and end up on the top step,” said Fix.
A new racing surface has been applied to the Watkins Glen track. However for Fix, with more laps at the facility than any other Trans Am competitor, it will be business as usual.

The Tony Ave Racing crew have been hard at work preparing the #50 machine. Both driver and crew are ready to take that big step into the championship points battle.
