After a pair of race weekends in Wisconsin, GMG Racing heads to the Southwest to shift back to the next round of the USAC Porsche Sprint Challenge USA West by Yokohama at Circuit of The Americas this weekend, August 25 – 27, where Parriott and Washington will compete in the 992 Porsche GT3 Cup Am division.
The last time out at Utah Motorsports Campus (UMC), GMG Racing banked a trio of podium finishes with Sofronas scoring two podiums and Washington one.
“Kyle and Todd will try to continue their push for the am championship,” Sofronas said. “They have busy schedules but we’re hopeful their test day on Thursday will aid them at the circuit.
“Todd showed this weekend his lap times were within a second of his peers, so there’s no question he can drive the car fast. He’s learning other series; gaining more racecraft and discovering when to be aggressive and push versus not. We gained a lot of experience and have had a lot of dialogue to go forward. He’s very excited about the prospects and talking about the future.”
Parriott added, “I’m really excited about it. I just crossed my one-year mark back on August 11, so I feel very good about my growth and what they’re doing for me. Going into COTA it’s going to be a hot one, so I feel prepared in good shape to take the heat. Hope that will help with some of the prep.”
