  • (1888PressRelease) July 07, 2011 - P1 Groupe drivers Jeff Bucknum and Robert Stout are riding high heading into Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca as the team recorded their best finish of the season two weeks ago at Road America with a fourth place finish. To date the team has four Top-10 finishes, and they will be searching for number five and their first podium this weekend in Saturday's GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Series race. Both Bucknum and Stout are excited and confident for this upcoming event at historic Laguna Seca.

    "I can't tell you how excited I am to run at Laguna Seca!" Stout emphasized "I know the track like the back of my hand and have never set foot on the track before. We came out of Road America so strong and with our best finish yet. We just seem to be improving race by race so I think Jeff and I will be able to come together and hopefully give Mitchum Motorsports their first podium!"

    Bucknum's comments echoed those of his co-driver. "I am super excited about our next race at Laguna Seca with my teammate Robert Stout running our #6 Mitchum Motorsports HASA Camaro. I have been around racing for a long time and I can see how this team has really started to gel as a unit which is exactly what it needs to win races. The crew is really working awesome together like a well oiled machine and Robert has stepped up his professional driving talents to a level that surpasses many veteran drivers I have raced with over the years! We have been leading the last few races and running at the front with the top cars all race long. Everyone on the team just need to keep their heads down and continue to do the awesome job they have been doing and a win will come! I feel very confident going into this race at Laguna Seca, it could easily be the race that brings Mitchum Motorsports and the #6 HASA Camaro its first win."
