Wilson Returns To MSR For Sebring
PATASKALA, Ohio – Michael Shank Racing with Curb/Agajanian will bring a set of familiar and fast faces with them when the team makes its debut competition appearance at Sebring Int’l Raceway next month, as Justin Wilson will return to race with the squad alongside full season pilots John Pew and Ozz Negri in the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring on March 15.
The trio will share the driving duties on the 3.74-mile circuit in the No. 60 Michael Shank Racing with Curb/Agajanian Ford Ecoboost Riley for round two of the 2014 IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.
Wilson has regularly raced with the team in endurance events ever since making a podium appearance in the 2006 Rolex 24 At Daytona when he first joined Michael Shank Racing with Curb/Agajanian.
The IndyCar pilot grew his Daytona Prototype program in 2013 as he joined the team for the sprint events in the second half of the season, finishing the year on the podium with a run to second place at Lime Rock Park.
Michael Shank Racing with Curb/Agajanian has an enviable record of success when debuting at new tracks, having won at Miller Motorsports Park and New Jersey Motorsports Park in the team’s first visits to those tracks. The group will have the opportunity to learn the new track as well as the evolved specification for the Daytona Prototypes in an IMSA hosted test next week.
“We are fortunate that the schedule worked out for us to have Justin join us not only for the race, but also for the test next week,” said team owner Mike Shank. “Having the Sebring 12 Hour on the schedule is fantastic and we are very excited about it. We also know how incredibly challenging the race can be, so to have a driver line up like this is going to be key for us. We have a race finish for the Ecoboost under our belt at Daytona, and now our goal is to just keep improving on our package, every time out.”
