# 50 - 2017 Lawrence Loshak at CoTA.jpg

Lawrence Loshak is the latest of three proven drivers recruited by Claudio Burtin to pilot his new # 50 TA Camaro.  One win and 2 second place results mark a huge improvement compared with Claudio’s struggle to rejuvenate his racing career in the # 7 Foametex Corvette.  (learned it will be re-bodied as Camaro which reportedly generate better front-end downforce)

Simon Gregg # 59 Corvette rounded out the top five.  Vinnie Allegretta # 41 Corvette was 7th, having lost his edge he hopes to regain at Daytona.
