A hectic Laguna Seca Trans Am TA2 first lap

By

Here’s a short, high-energy Trans Am series video courtesy Heacock Classic racing insurance: It’s the first lap of last Sunday’s TA2 race at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca from driver Thomas Merrill’s perspective.

Merrill’s TFB Performance Ford Mustang (off in the dirt in the photo above) started next to last due to a mechanical issue in qualifying, but the Californian quickly worked his way to the front of the field, passing several cars each lap. (NOTE: Merrill went on to finish first on track, but was dropped to second in the final results after being assessed a penalty for a Lap 2 incident – nonetheless a hugely impressive performance!)
