Round 2: Trans Am at Homestead-Miami Speedway

In the Trans Am Muscle Car Challenge at Homestead-Miami Speedway held on April 12, 2015, Gar Robinson and Shane Lewis of Robinson Racing placed tenth and eleventh respectively, in their Chevrolet Camaros sponsored by 74 Ranch Resort. Having started the race in P2, Lewis battled loose conditions and tire pressure issues, falling back to 19th place toward the end of the race and finishing in P11. Gar Robinson had qualified fifth in the Challenge but faced a fuel injector failure and then a flat tire with eight laps to go.

“Character building: if you to look up the definition of that phrase in my personal dictionary you will now find this race date firmly etched in that book,” noted Lewis. “What I can say is I learned a lot. I never stop learning, never stop pushing, and never stop being thankful for the team I have.”

The Michigan-based team conducted a private testing session with both Camaros at Road Atlanta, to make adjustments prior to the next Trans Am race, Round 3 of the Series on May 9, 2015.
