Tomy Drissi Back in the
No. 26 Straight Outta Compton Toyota
MOORESVILLE, NC (August 13, 2015) - For the second week in a row, road racing champion Tomy Drissi will join JGL Racing as the NASCAR XFINITY Series heads to the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Drissi will pilot the No. 26 "Straight Outta Compton"Toyota Camry in Saturday's running of the Nationwide Children's Hospital 200 at the Ohio road course.
Nationwide Children's Hospital is the race sponsor for the third year of the NASCAR Xfinity Series event held at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Ten patients and their families get to spend the day with some of the biggest names in NASCAR.
"This is a fantastic event," said Tomy. "My wife (Lacy) and I recently became parents to twins, so it's extra meaningful to be here and help out with such a worthy cause. This one hits close to home."
"We had a good week at Watkins Glen," continue Tomy. "I'm really looking forward to climbing back into the JGL Racing Toyota. We struggled a bit but I think we've got things worked at. Plus, I had a decent run here with the JGL guys last year where we finished 23rd. And, this is such a great place to be racing. I'm really excited to bring Universal Pictures to Mid-Ohio and promote the movie, Straight Outta Compton."
It should be noted, Tomy will also run in the Trans Am Series Next Dimension 100, presented by FirstEnergy, also featured at Mid-Ohio earlier in the day on Saturday.
The running of the Nationwide Children's Hospital 200 will be Saturday August 15th and can be seen LIVE on NBC Sports Network at 3:00 pm ET. It can also be heard on Motor Racing Network (MRN) and Sirius Channel 90.
Straight Outta Compton:
Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., Straight Outta Compton tells the astonishing story of how they revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war. Entrenched in the racial tumult of Los Angeles in the mid-1980's, a group of aspiring rappers banded together to revolutionize the global consumption of hip-hop and popular culture. NWA was born out of racial frustration and the disadvantaged economics of their South Central neighborhood. F. Gary Gray directs this biopic about the rise to stardom for the act that earned the moniker of "The World's Most Dangerous Group", featuring Ice Cube's son O'Shea Jackson Jr. Playing the role of his father, Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre, and Jason Mitchell as the late Eazy-E.
