Krohn Racing will return to Daytona International Speedway this week with a two-car team. Team owner/driver Tracy W. Krohn and teammate Eric van de Poele will again pair in the No. 75 Krohn Racing Ford Lola for in the Brumos Porsche 250 Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series race.

The No. 76 Krohn Racing Ford Lola will feature team regular Nic Jönsson paired with Brit Darren Turner, who is subbing for Ricardo Zonta. Zonta will be racing in his homeland, Brazil, where he is in the championship hunt of the Nextel Stock Car Championship series. He is both a team owner and driver in the NASCAR-style series of V-8 stock cars. Turner has driven with the Krohn Racing team as the third driver, teamed with Jönsson and Zonta, in the Rolex 24 at Daytona the past two seasons. The popular Brumos Porsche 250 will be held on Saturday, July 4th, at 2:00 p.m., just hours before the famous NASCAR 400-mile race, the Coke Zero 400 powered by Coca-Cola.

TRACY W. KROHN, Team Owner/Driver of the No. 75 Krohn Racing Ford Lola:
The Krohn Racing team is headed to Daytona with both the No. 75 and No. 76 Proto-Auto Lolas for the Brumos Porsche 250 race. Please tell us about the plan and why you & Eric are back with the second car.
"This is an opportunity to showcase Krohn Racing in front of a substantial NASCAR crowd and we know that we will race, rain or shine! Actually, I hope it rains because it will show the NASCAR crowd that the show goes on with Grand Am no matter what. We also know our cars are quite good in the rain!!"

Krohn Racing also has a driver switch up with Darren Turner in the cockpit with Nic Jönsson instead of Ricardo Zonta. Ricardo gets a chance to race his stock car in Brazil and Darren gets to sub for him the Grand-Am car. Please share a little about the driver change.
"I think that if we were in the realm of a championship then I do not think Ricardo would even ask to be released. I have never wanted to do anything to any of our drivers that might harm them or their careers and have even fought through the court in one instance to prevent that. Ricardo has an opportunity, that under the circumstances, would help him and cause no harm to us. Darren is an extremely talented driver and I have spoken recently to his girlfriend and she would desperately like to move out of the trailer home that he is poaching electricity with at Silverstone! But, that is a story you will have to ask Darren about!"
