Scott Tucker led team departs from the 2014 TUDOR United SportsCar season.

Level 5 Motorsports, who took home the top prize in the GT-Daytona category at the 24 Hours of Daytona have withdrawn from the TUDOR United SportsCar Championsship, and will look into opportunities to bring a customer program to the Pirelli World Challenge.

According to SportsCar365, team manager David Stone said part of the decision to withdrawl was due to the series quick reaction penalizing the team at the end of the 24 Hour event in January.

“I want to be really clear that I’m not trying to be negative or disrespectful of the TUDOR Championship. I have no ill will or negativity against them. They need to do what they feel is right for them, just as I must do the same for Level 5,” Stone said.

Stone added that the 2014 season is a development season for the TUDOR Series, and that the team should never have entered in the first place.

Level 5 had plans to provide customer support to Prototype Challenge teams this season, but with limited paddock space that caused the series to being to limit entries, this hurt the Scott Tucker squad.

The team which got its start from Ferrari Challenge success will continue to provide support to that series,as well as look at entering cars into the Pirelli World Challenge.

The teams full time driver lineup of Bill Sweedler and Townsend Bell is expected to make an announcement to a new team soon.
