Ramies Wins at Infineon!

russell1 Ramies Wins at Infineon!

Running in conjunction with the Indy Racing League, Michael took part in the Jim Russell racing series race at Infineon Raceway. The challenging 2.2 mile, 12 turn road course is set in the middle of California wine country, and has been the site of racing at the highest level since it opened in 1968. It is a challenge that Michael is well familiar with, as the native Californian lists Infineon as one of his two home tracks along with Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

Michael’s weekend got started with a solid seventh place showing in qualifying, giving him high hopes for the race to come. The race itself got off to an inauspicious start, as Michael got collected in a wreck that started further ahead in the field. After a lengthy pit stop to repair a damaged front wing, Michael returned to the track and quickly was lapping at the same pace as the leaders.  The day ended with a strong recovery as Michael came home fifth after being a lap behind the leaders following the repairs. Unfortunately the results did not equal Michael’s pace, as he was able to run with those at the front of the grid throughout the race.
