Earning the top step of the podium a couple of times already this year, Nitro Motorsports will aim to do that again at Lime Rock Park this weekend. Bringing five drivers to the Trans Am Series Presented by Pirelli, Nitro Motorsports brings speed, talent, and race winners to Lakeville, Connecticut.

“We have won races with two different drivers, had podium finishers with five different drivers, pole positions, and fast laps all show the strength of our program,” explained Nick Tucker. “We will look to do much of the same this weekend and keep the momentum going.”

Fresh off a win at the Worldwide Technology Raceway last week, Ben Maier is riding a high heading into Lime Rock Park but will be challenged by his Nitro Motorsports teammates. Maier has shown constant progression and growth, earning his first Trans Am Series win in St. Louis. All-time Trans Am Series win lead Rafa Matos will join Maier in the TA2 class alongside podium winner Thomas Annunziata, who will be looking to rebound from a difficult weekend in St. Louis. Gio Ruggiero will be back in a Nitro Motorsports-prepared machine as he aims for the podium at Lime Rock Park with Michele Abbate, who has earned a couple of podium results this season and looks for more in Connecticut.

Tucker added, “We have a strong team that works well together and pushes one another for success. If we continue to do that again this weekend, we will be good.”

Drivers will hit the track on Friday for a pair of practice sessions before qualifying late in the day sets the grid for Saturday’s main event. Be sure to follow Nitro Motorsports social media pages for news, information, photos, and results from the event weekend. To watch live, tune in to
