TOTAL Joins Action Express Racing Action Express Racing is pleased to announce a new partnership with TOTAL Lubricants USA that will see the No. 9 Action Express Racing Corvette DP carry branding from TOTAL in the final two races of the 2013 GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series championship, starting with this weekend’s Continental Tire Sports Car Festival at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
Action Express Racing broke onto the racing scene with a huge victory at Daytona in 2010, and enters the final stages of the 2013 GRAND-AM season firmly in the mix for the Rolex Series championship title. With five podium finishes so far this season, including wins at Mid-Ohio and Watkins Glen, the two-car team has developed into a full fledged championship contender.
The No. 9 TOTAL Lubricants Corvette DP is shared by Burt and Brian Frisselle, who finished a season-best third two rounds ago at Road America.
The new marketing partnership with Action Express marks an expansion of the partnership effort that TOTAL first established with GRAND-AM ahead of the 2012 season, when TOTAL was named the “Official Engine Oil of GRAND-AM.”
“As hard as our team has been working to generate positive results on the track, we’ve also been working to develop a platform that supports the marketing efforts of our corporate partners, so we are very excited to welcome TOTAL to the Action Express Racing family, and we look forward to having a strong finish to the season as everyone looks ahead to a very exciting future next year,” said Bob Johnson, Action Express Racing team owner.
Round 11 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca will open with practice and qualifying on Saturday, September 7, with the race set to be broadcast live Sunday, September 8 on Fox Sports 1 at 5:00 PM ET.
