Things turned around quickly in the off-season for Ashley Freiberg as she went from searching for a seat to holding the keys to multiple rides for the 2016 season. Freiberg will co-drive the No. 96 Turner Motorsport Spectra Resources/United Steel/Valspar Paint/IHG Rewards Club BMW M6 GT3 during three of the four Tequila Patrón North American Endurance Cup races and also has landed a spot with the Starworks Motorsport Prototype Challenge team for the sprint races. She also is testing in the Continental Tire Challenge with the MINI John Cooper Work team.
“Honestly, I just worked my tail off to make it happen,” said Freiberg. “I know we had a great year last year, especially ending on a high note with the [Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge race] win at Petit and we were all working hard to find a place to put me here, and luckily, there was a place to put me at Turner. The PC deal came together last minute and that’s super exciting, too. I think it will be a really nice addition to what I have here [with Turner].”
