Phil Fogg Jr. and Sloan Urry are well aware of the sad circumstances in which the Pirelli World Challenge fields will be racing at Sonoma Raceway this weekend, in memory of Justin Wilson.
Last time out, Fogg Jr came fifth in both GT Cup races at Miller Motorsports Park, and this weekend he will be trying to score some better finishes.
“I’m glad to be back at Sonoma Raceway because it is a track I love,” he said. “But we are racing with heavy hearts this weekend. It’s going to be a somber weekend as we all remember Justin Wilson and send our love to his family.”
Meanwhile, Urry finished third both times in Utah: “After such a big weekend with our guests at SecurityNational at Miller, it was a terrible shock to find out about what happened in the IndyCar race.
“I enjoy racing at Sonoma, but we’ll be doing so with heavy hearts. We continue to think of Justin Wilson’s family and keep them in our prayers.”
“Justin Wilson truly was the nicest and most well-liked competitor in our industry,” added Tyler Tadevic, TruSpeed Autosport Team Owner. “I’ve personally known him since his early days in Champ Car when I owned Pacific Coast Motorsports and competed against him. It’s a huge loss for anyone who knew him.”
