For the 4th year in a row E.L.I. Incorporated will be a sponsor of a car for the Grand-Am cup, a 3-hour endurance race series which runs at tracks in the U.S. and Canada. For the 2002 season Neal Heffron, V.P. of Sales at E.L.I. Incorporated, will be one of the racecar drivers of a BMW 2.8 liter Z3 coupe. Car number 38 is one of 3 similarly prepared cars run by the professional race team Villaconn Motorsports. See http://www.villaconn.com for more info on the team and cars. Heffron ran 2 races with Villaconn in the 2001 season and helped the team secure the Grand-Am Cup team championship at the season finale run at Daytona International on November 2.
For the 2002 season Heffron plans to run most of the races at world famous tracks including, Daytona, Watkins Glen, Mosport, Virginia International Raceway, Mt. Tremblant and Phoenix International. Heffron is excited to be running in the BMW Z3 again. The car has proven to be very competitive in the past and should be very competitive in the future.
The season opens for team ELI in February. Heffron will be driving car 38 in the 3-hour, Grand-Am Cup race, which is a support race for the Rolex 24. Watch the team's progress on the results page, which will be updated during the season. You can also check http://www.grand-am.com to keep up with team and drivers standings.
