The Chevrolet Camaro Z/28.R has already won three races in its debut season, and the two teams campaigning the cars will be looking to continue onward with that momentum as they head to the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the eighth race of the Continental Tire championship season this weekend.
Andy Lally, who secured pole position in his No. 06 Z/28.R at Watkins Glen last month, and teammate Matt Bell will be in one of four Camaro Z/28.Rs at Indianapolis on Friday. They will be joined by their teammates Robin Liddell and Andrew Davis in their No. 6 Z/28.R, who won the races at Sebring and Watkins Glen.
Eric Curran and Lawson Aschenbach, winners of the most recent stop in championship tour at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in their No. 01 Z/28.R will be racing for CKS Autosport. Also from CKS will be Ashley McCalmont and Mike Skeen in the No. 00 Z/28.R.
“Bringing the new Chevrolet Camaro Z/28.R to the Brickyard is a very important and special opportunity for everyone involved in this program,” said Chevy’s Chevrolet Program Manager for the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, Lisa Talarico. “With consecutive GS victories, the Camaro Z/28.R has incredible momentum. Taking another win – this time at Indianapolis – would be a highlight of our first year. The Camaro platform has won at Indy before, so there is no reason to expect it will not be competitive this week.”
The Stevenson Motorsports duo of Liddell and Davis currently sit in fifth in the championship standings, the highest of any team campaigning a Z/28.R. CKS’ Bell and Lally currently sit sixth, with Aschenbach and Curran in ninth and McCalmont and Skeen in 22nd. Chevrolet is also leading the series’ manufacturer standings and will be cheering on its Z/28.R teams as the race commences at 2:35 p.m. this Friday.
