A quick note from our resident racer and PRN Contributor...Aaron Poveledo:

 

"I was slotted to be driving APR Motorsport's new car in my next Grand Am race, and wow did it get the job done.  This past weekend at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah we took:

Pole, fastest lap, most laps led and the victory!!!

It really was a top shelf example of what is possible when an entire team of professionals gives their maximum.  The crew worked relentlessly on improving the car all weekend, the strategy was great, pit stop was perfect, co driver Ian Baas drove a perfect stint and in the end we were spraying champagne.

The race will be televised tomorrow (Saturday) at 9:pm ET on the Speed Channel.

Cheers and have a great weekend,"
