Dyson Racing Shuffles Driver Roster
POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – With an eye toward 2014 and beyond, Dyson Racing will feature different driver combinations in upcoming events.
Chris McMurry and Tony Burgess will rejoin the team for four of the remaining six rounds of the American Le Mans Series starting at the upcoming race at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park on July 21, while Johnny Mowlem will return to the team at Virginia Int’l Raceway.
McMurry and Burgess, series veterans who joined the team last year and drove well together in the No. 20 Dyson car at the Petit Le Mans, will co-drive the team’s No. 16 Lola-Mazda at Mosport, Road America and the Circuit of the Americas, and will pair with Chris Dyson at the season-ending Petit Le Mans race. Mowlem, who joined Dyson and Guy Smith for two events in 2012 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and VIR, is thrilled to be returning to the team after a successful test with McMurry and Burgess at Road Atlanta two weeks ago.
“We’ve known since the start of this season that with the merger of IMSA and Grand-Am, 2014 would mark a major inflection point in North American sports car racing,” said Chris Dyson. “While IMSA has not yet issued its technical rules calibrating the performance of P2 and Daytona Prototypes for 2014, we’ve known that success next season for Dyson Racing will require an early start.
