Weekend Recap: Trans-Am at Virginia International Raceway

September 28, 2020 – It was a tough weekend for Jett Noland the Mike Cope Racing No.66 crew at Virginia International Raceway. After showing signs of speed Friday afternoon in Practice, electrical gremlins plagued the team during both feature races.

“It was a tough weekend for sure, said Noland. Saturday we started 10th, moved up to 9th and then the engine started cutting out under caution. Then we had to bring the Noland’s Roofing ride back down pit road and had to get it fixed up. I was thrilled that we drove back up to tenth after that.

Once the race was over, the Mike Cope Racing guys obviously went back over the car to make sure the issue was fixed, but unfortunately come Sunday we battled issues the whole race. You’ll have that sometimes, but I know my guys back at the shop are going to go over this thing with a fine tooth comb before Circuit of the Americas. We’ll get them then.”

Though the next Trans Am event isn’t until November, Noland will be keeping the driver’s seat warm. October 10th he’ll be competing in the Winchester 400 with Mike Cope Racing. Then he’ll be racing in St. Petersburg with the Stadium Super Trucks the weekend of the 24th. Stay tuned to JettNoland.com for details on his schedule.
