Kendall Coming Out Of Retirement
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Veteran sports-car racer Tommy Kendall will come out of retirement next month to race in the American Le Mans Series.
Kendall will campaign one of two new SRT Viper GTS-R entries during the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Challenge at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on Aug. 4. Kendall currently works as a television personality.
Kendall will be one of four full-time drivers for the two-car team, joining Dominik Farnbacher, Marc Goossens and Kuno Wittmer. Ryan Hunter-Reay will join the team for the longer endurance events.
Kendall is probably best known for his success in the SCCA Trans-Am Series, where he won four championships in the 1990s and countless races. He won his first championship in 1990 then added three straight championships from 1995 to 1997 while driving for Jack Roush.
The SRT Viper GTS-R race cars will enter all the remaining events on the ALMS schedule with the exception of the Grand Prix of Baltimore. The team plans to compete full-time in 2013.
