Mooresville, N.C. (August 25, 2010) – With three races remaining on the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East schedule for 2010, Germain Racing’s rookie driver Zach Germain and his No. 24 Germain.com Camry team are ready to put to use all they’ve learned when the series rolls into Gresham Motorsports Park for the American Fence Association 150 Presented By Mayfield Ice Creamier on Saturday night.
“Our Germain.com Camry team was able to test at Gresham last week and it gave us all a big confidence boost. Gresham Motorsports Park is a first-class facility. The track is super fast with great banking. I think the testing we did will help our team because I’ve had a chance to figure out the line and we have a good baseline for our chassis setup,” said Germain, who captured a tenth-place finish in his first NASCAR career race at the season opener in Greenville, SC.
Continuous improvement was a primary goal of the No. 24 team at the start of the season. After 6 races, a top-ten finish and a 14th-place rank in the championship standings, it remains the most important goal on the weekly checklist.
“For the Germain.com Camry team to say we’ve had a good weekend at Gresham, we will want to see continued improvements in our qualifying effort and competitive racing with a strong result. We are still a young team and we’ve learned a lot together this year. We want to keep improving,” explained the 25 year-old Columbus, OH, native, who earned his best starting spot of the season in the last K&N Pro Series race at Lee USA Speedway where he lined up 12th.
In addition to testing with the No. 24 team, Germain has been able to learn from his fellow Germain Racing teammates in the Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series.
“Germain Racing competes in all three of NASCAR’s top divisions. During the off-weeks, I’ve been able to utilize some of the resources we have here for a rookie driver. I observed our other race teams and listened to team radio communications. My perspective has evolved,” said Germain, who will be part of Funopolis Fanfest at Funopolis Family Fun Center on Friday night in Commerce.
Jamie Jones will call the shots for Germain and the No. 24 Germain.com Camry again this weekend. Jones is looking forward to racing at Gresham after what the team learned in last week’s test session.
“We had a good test at Gresham last week and I feel we’ll have a good, competitive day,” said Jones, who will lead the No. 24 Germain.com Camry team for the second race this season.
The Germain.com Camry races 150 laps at Gresham Motorsports Park on Saturday, August 28th at 8:30 PM Eastern. The American Fence Association 150 Presented By Mayfield Ice Creamier race will be broadcast on SPEED on Thursday, September 2nd at 6:00 PM Eastern.
