ASA STARS National Tour
Team Construction To Support ASA STARS Winners Circle Program
Mar 6, 2023
Gabe Sommers and the GSR crew are headed back to Florida for their second event of the season. Pensacola is the newest destination for the group, and the home of the inaugural race for the ASA STARS National Tour. The No. 15 is fresh off of a fifth place points finish at the World Series of Asphalt in New Smyrna, certainly a positive note to start the season on, but Gabe and his crew believe they have a better program than the results show.
“We worked on a bunch of things after New Smyrna to help with where we struggled. I’ve never raced in a show of this caliber at Five Flags, so I’m very excited to have that sort of opportunity,” said Sommers. “I feel really good about our chances as we get ready to head south, I think we have a great car and team to get it done.”
The ASA name coming back to prominence in late model racing is certainly special, and the pomp and circumstance of the Sunshine State 200 is certainly not lost on Gabe as he and his crew prepare for the 1100-plus mile journey to Pensacola. “ASA has such a good track record, and I can’t wait to be a part of the history that comes with the name,” Gabe stated.
The 30-plus car entry list is made up of some of the toughest and fastest drivers in the country, and the GSR crew knows that hard work is ahead to contend for the trophy. For Gabe, the nerves are the same as usual, even with a race of this magnitude looming. He knows the competition is stout, but comments that he “likes it, simply because racing against these drivers and teams helps our own program find ways to keep improving.”
The Sunshine State 200 is sure to be a race for the history books. Watch Gabe and the GSR crew at Five Flags Speedway on March 11 at 4 PM CST on Racing America, MidwestTour.TV, or TrackTV.com.
