American Muscle Gets Flexed At Brainerd International Raceway During Show & Go, Featuring Drag Racing And Event Finale, A Pair Of 100-Mile Trans Am Series Races

Tom Sheehan drove his Camaro to an 11th place finish last year in TA2. The Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli will have feature more than 40 cars on the road course for a pair of 100-mile races.
