Lexington, OH (June 24, 2021) – Lucas SlickMist Driver Tomy Drissi is looking for his fourth consecutive podium at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course this weekend at the next round of the Trans Am Championship Presented by Pirelli. Drissi has always been fast at Mid-Ohio where the championship driver holds the record for the fastest qualifying lap and only driver to average over 100 mph in a Trans Am car.
“The hard work has been paying off and we are starting to overcome some of the early season challenges.” Drissi said “The Lucas Oil SlickMist Chevy Camaro has been quick and the support from Lucas and Burtin Racing has been great and we’re ready to set a new bar for the rest of the field to chase.”
Heading into Round 5 at Mid-Ohio, Drissi is just 12 points off the leader for the 2021 championship.
