Spirit of Daytona Racing head to Laguna Seca with its eyes set firmly on repeating its 2012 success at the Californian circuit.

The team are yet to secure a victory in 2013, with drivers Ricky Taylor and Richard Westbrook achieving a best result of third at Barber Motorsport Park, and will be hoping to double their podium tally at Laguna Seca.

Mechanical issues have dogged the Florida-based team, with a gearbox issue at Road America and a stuck throttle at Kansas. However, the three week break ahead of Laguna Seca has been the perfect chance for the team to regroup and prepare for a strong result at the 2.2-mile circuit.

“Well, this was not the season that we were thinking we would have, but you know with how competitive GRAND-AM is, we knew that every race was going to be a battle,” said team owner Troy Flis. “So I’m proud of my guys and how everyone keeps stepping up. I think coming out here to a track where we were able to execute so well last year has us all optimistic for the race. Richard and Ricky are both very good here, so we’ll just try to get the monkey off our back a little bit on Sunday!”

The 2013 event will mark Spirit of Daytona’s fifth appearance at Laguna Seca, achieving their best result in 2012 with Westbrook and Antonio Garcia taking pole and leading 41 laps on the way to victory. Taylor, who joined Spirit of Daytona at the start of 2013 has a best result of third in three Laguna Seca starts.
