Whitby, Ontario based Canada’s Best Racing Team has announced that they will be fielding a two car effort in the popular T/A 2 class in the Trans Am series. Kansas driver Ron Keith will be joining the squad alongside Trans Am and NASCAR Pinty’s Series road course specialist Kevin Poitras.
I visited the CBRT shop earlier this week, where Keith’s Ford Mustang is beginning to look like a real race car. There is less than a month now before the first event of the season, at Sebring.
