Grant Enfinger Set To Make IMSA Series Debut
MOORESVILLE, N.C. (March 11, 2018) – Grant Enfinger, the current NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series points leader, and his ThorSport Racing teammates – Matt Crafton, Ben Rhodes and Myatt Snider, will take on the 3.74-mile road course of Sebring International Raceway, in Sebring, Florida, March 13-15. The quartet will be competing in the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) Michelin Pilot Challenge for Multimatic Motorsports. Enfinger, who will be sharing a seat with teammate, Matt Crafton, will pilot the No. 22 Ford Performance/Multimatic Motorsports, Inc. Ford Mustang GT4.
“I’m looking forward to running the IMSA Series race, and the Multimatic Motorsports Mustang GT4 at Sebring,” said Grant Enfinger, driver of the No. 22 Ford Performance/Multimatic Motorsports, Inc. Ford Mustang GT4. “Although I’ll be seeing the track for the first time when I get there next week, I was fortunate enough to make some laps in a Ford Performance simulator, and get an idea of the layout. I hear Sebring is a challenge because the track is tight, and there’s a lot of congestion, but it will be a great opportunity to hone in on my road course racing skills for Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, later this year. Just getting seat time, and making laps in a competitive car, with a competitive team, with the backing of Ford Performance, is imperative as I continue to develop my road course racing skills. I’ll be sharing a seat with my ThorSport Racing teammate, Matt Crafton, and he has a pretty good track record on road courses, so hopefully we can lean on each other and make the best of this opportunity.”
The Alan Jay Automotive Network 120, will air live on IMSA.tv and IMSA Radio Friday, March 15, and televised on NBCSN at 3 p.m. ET Thursday, March 28.
