The NorthStar Battery CTEK Chargers 100 Race at Daytona International Speedway was held last month, and marked the final event for the 2013 Trans Am Racing Series. In addition to being the race’s title sponsor, the CTEK-sponsored Chevy Camaro, fielded by Miller Racing and driven by Cameron Lawrence, captured first place in the season-ending points total to become the 2013 Trans Am TA2 class overall champion after winning eight out of 10 races. In the final race at Daytona, Lawrence finished first in the 22-car TA2 field and ninth overall. The Trans Am Series, America’s Road Racing Series, dates back to 1966. The series now features three distinct classes: TA, TA2 and TA3 and is sanctioned by SCCA Pro Racing. For more information, visit www.gotransam.com.
