# 23 Amy Ruman reached the podium after two disappointing results earlier this season.

# 23 - 2018 TA Amy Ruman at Homestead 02.jpg

In 2015 Ruman triumphed on the 2.27 mile Homestead-Miami road course/NASCAR oval “roval” circuit on the way to her first championship.

It appears that stalwarts Ruman and # 59 Simon Gregg are the only two Corvette racers contending the entire schedule (exit Paul Fix, Tomy Drissi, Vinnie Allegretta and others that switched to Caddy and Camaro-bodied cars).
