June 29, 2020 – Jett Noland competed in his second Trans AM TA-2 event this weekend at Mid-Ohio Sprots Car Course, picking up a 6th place finish in the process in his Mike Cope Racing Noland’s Roofing – Cypress Ridge Hunting Preserve Mustang.
While starting 8th in his first ever trip to Mid-Ohio, Noland quickly found a groove and patiently migrated his way through the field. As the clock zeroed in on the final 10 minutes of competition, the yellow flag came out for Rafa Matos coming to a stop on the track, which marked the end of the race. Though officials would throw the green flag after time had expired for a one lap showdown. In this lap Noland would get caught up with Mike Cope Racing teammate Misha Goikhberg. But it would be for not as race officials would refer back to the last lap run before the clock expired.
“I’m glad the race officials reviewed the tape and got the call right,” said Noland. “After what happened at Sebring, these boys at Mike Cope Racing have worked too hard to have the race end like that again. I’m happy for my teammate Thomas Merrill on picking up the victory.”
While many wonder if things are good between Noland and Goikhberg, Noland quickly smiled.
“Yeah, we’re good. He had an issue on the final lap, unfortunately we got involved. But he’s fine, we’re fine, and we’re ready to get after it in the next round.”
The Trans Am Series Presented by Pirelli rolls on to Brainerd, Minnesota July 10-12 for it’s next competition. Stay tuned to JettNoland.com for schedule updates on where the Noland’s Roofing – Cypress Ridge Hunting Preserve ride will be next.
