Speed World Challenge - Track Meet

Saukville, WIS - After a couple of years in a Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec-V, driver and owner of Real Time Racing, Peter Cunningham, is back behind the wheel of an Acura. He joins three-time Touring Car champion Pierre Kleinubing in one of the team's three TSX A-spec cars. The two drivers rank first and second in series career wins and fastest qualifier categories, having earned a collective 49 victories and 54 pole positions.

The third TSX is in the hands of 19-year-old Brandon Davis, who made three starts for RTR last year and will be gunning for the 2005 top rookie prize. Eric Curran and touring car sophomore Nick Esayian will pilot RTR's two RSX A-Spec cars to round out the five-car campaign.

"Our goal this year is to win an unprecedented fifth manufacturers' championship for Acura, and a ninth drivers' championship for RealTime Racing's drivers," said team manager Nathan Bonneau. "This is the strongest lineup RealTime Racing has ever had, and that excites us."

This isn't the first time that RealTime has run five Acura touring cars. They ran five in 2000 and 2001, when Kleinubing won the championship. Cunningham believes they have a better shot at it this year:

"Pierre is a known quantity in World Challenge racing. It would be difficult to remember a race where he wasn't a major factor. Eric made a great teammate in 2003, and last year both Nick and Brandon showed a lot of potential. This is the deepest talent pool we have ever had."
