RAINS RACING WELCOMES THOMPSON TRACTOR COMPANY FOR 2016 AND BEYOND!
The #44 and #93 Honda Accord teams’ are excited to get back to the race track with World Challenge. This time the venue is the iconic 4 mile Road America circuit near beautiful Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. Thursday June 23rd and Friday June 24th will see the team’s two Accord Coupe V6’s take to the track to battle with the best in World Challenge Touring Car. Driver’s Andrew Rains and Paul Street will compete with a 22 car strong Touring Car field.
Both Paul and Andrew last raced with World Challenge in March at Circuit of the America’s. Although Paul’s #93 team had a rough weekend with a rear hub failure and drivetrain issue, the #44 team managed to score a pair of top 10 finishes on debut for their new Accord. Now with more car familiarity for the #44 team, and more testing time in the books for the #93 team, both crews expect a strong outing at Road America.
“Road America is our favorite track, it’s a GREAT venue! We couldn’t be more excited to be heading to Wisconsin to race with World Challenge. The long straight-aways should suit these Honda Accords really nicely. Our Honda power plant is so drivable, I think we’re going to have a great time at Road America!” – Paul Street, Honda Motorsports Alabama
