AIM Autosport are looking to continue the form that saw them lead the previous round of the Grand Am Rolex Series at Montreal, through to Watkins Glen just a week later.
Burt Frisselle and Mark Wilkins take to the car that led the race at Montreal before eventually crossing the line in seventh place, with Frisselle keen to repeat his podium winning performance of 2004.
Although second place on that occasion was more to do with a good call on tyres when it started raining, Frisselle claims it is one of the finest moments in his career and he is hoping such experience may come in handy over the course of this year's Watkins Glen race.
"It was a strategy call," he said. "We switched from wet tires to dry tires before anybody else except the eventual winner, and he and I ran away from the entire field. It's one of my greatest memories in a DP car, so hopefully we'll make all the right calls again.
"I have a lot of experience at that track in the rain. The one very challenging part is taking care of your rain tires and keeping them underneath you. If it rains, you've got to be very conscious of not destroying your tires. Obviously, I have experience of when to make the call to go to slicks. The track dries out quicker than most, with drainage and concrete patches, so if you make that call early, you can definitely reap rewards."
