If there was any event on the Grand American ROLEX Calendar that Team Sahlen circles each year focusing upon top level success, it is the Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen.
As this year’s even draws near, Team Sahlen is perfectly set to reap the benefits of a strong 1st half of the 2012 season. The Team has led laps in 5 of the 7 races to date, and secured 1 podium. Additionally the team is 7th in the GT Team Championship.
“We are very excited about this year’s Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen. At last year’s event, we qualified in 4th place, ran as high as 1st place then settled into 7th place at the end of the race. Dane and I are really clicking. Hopefully our driving tandem can outpace the competition and perhaps we can find ourselves on the podium.” – shared Wayne Nonnamaker
And Dane Cameron added - "The Sahen's 6hrs of the Glen is a very unique event as it is our 2nd longest race at a very challenging circuit. Watkins Glen is one of my favorite tracks and has a lot of history and a great rhythm to it. This will be a fun weekend I am sure as it is the home event for Sahlen's and Wayne and I will be looking to put on a good show."
In the 2nd Team Sahlen Mazda will be the trio of Joe Sahlen and Joe & Will Nonnamaker. The three drivers will split the driving duties evenly for the whole race.
“I am excited to be driving with both Joe’s this weekend. Joe Sahlen and myself have finished in the Top 10 twice before in this event. At last weekend’s Road America event, we found a great set up that worked on this car, and we made great progress. I believe this will transition over to this weekend’s event." - shares Will Nonnamaker
The Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen on July 1st at 11 am. The race will be televised live on SPEEDTV.
