Say hello to #59...still some finishing touches (series/compliance stickers <---a LOT!, headlight stickers, driver, etc), but you get the idea...

The TA2 debut of #59 is slated for next week at the Austin Speedfest at COTA!! Can't wait!!

Due to a business obligation I'm going to be in Japan but we have the hotshoe Dillon Machavern piloting #59 for COTA - I'm hoping my wife will be able to livestream it for me!!

More info, schedule, drivers list, etc:

Neat article with a mention of the #59 Manufacturing News Camaro…..a snippet below:

"Veteran fans of TA2 competition will have the pleasure of seeing the previous class victors Gar Robinson, in the No. 74 74 Ranch Resort Chevrolet Camaro, and Dillon Machavern, in the No. 59 Red Line Oil/ Manufacturing News/ TRB Chevrolet Camaro, back in action this weekend. While Robinson, the 2015 and 2017 TA2 champ and native Texan, will be flying his home colors of Robinson Racing, Machavern enters as a familiar face in a new place, racing with TRB and, for the first time in Trans Am, behind the wheel of a Chevrolet Camaro."
