Brian Cunningham Joins Alex Job Racing in 24 Car

Tavares, Florida - Brian Cunningham will join Alex Job Racing as the third driver of the number 24/Alex Job Racing/Bell Micro Products/Porsche 911 GT3 RSR for Sebring and Petit Le Mans. Cunningham joins full-time drivers Randy Pobst and Ian Baas for the endurance portion of the ALMS races rounding out a strong all American entry.

The Danville, Kentucky resident is coming off of a 2004 season where he drove a number of races in a Porsche, BMW and Cobra. Cunningham's racing resume includes multiple wins in both Grand Am and ALMS as well as runner up finishes in both championships. Last season he placed fifth at Sebring with J3 Motorsports in their 911. Also in 2004 he posted victories in the Marcus Motorsports Cobra at Virginia International Raceway and Summit Point.

The 35-year old Cunningham has spent the last 16-months focusing on opening a new Porsche dealership in Lexington, Kentucky. Together with Philadelphia 76ers NBA star Jamal Mashburn, the duo will open Porsche of Lexington in June of this year.

"For the last year-and-a-half I have been focusing on opening our Porsche dealership," said Cunningham. "With the heavy details of the business behind us I am ready to go racing! My best finish at Sebring was in 1996 in the factory Olds Aurora where we finished second. Driving with Alex Job Racing and their level of preparation offers me an opportunity to improve one more place. I know that AJR has won Sebring six times, I am confident we can help make it seven. I am looking forward to working with Randy and Ian in two weeks."

"Brian is a solid driver with a lot of road racing experience," said Alex Job, owner Alex Job Racing. "We ran head-to-head with him when he drove the BMW and he was fast and consistent. Couple his speed with a low DNF rate and that is what you look for at the longer races like Sebring and Petit Le Mans. I know he will blend well with Randy and Ian and be able to contribute to the overall competitiveness of the 24 car."
