Jason Workman Joins Synergy Racing for Rolex 24 at Daytona
Atlanta, GA: Jason Workman has agreed to be a co-driver of the Synergy Racing Picchio/BMW Daytona Prototype at the upcoming Rolex 24 at Daytona on February 5-6.
"The phone rang and on the other end was Cole Scrogham, team founder of Synergy Racing and he offered me the drive for Daytona," said an enthusiastic Workman. "I am very pleased to be joining the Synergy Racing team for this race. They have put together a good, solid team and I look forward to contributing to their team success at Daytona. I drove this same car last year so I am very comfortable in making a return run at this legendary event." Workman co-drove the Picchio-BMW to a 7th place finish in Daytona Prototype in last year's Rolex 24 at Daytona.
"Last year, I noted Jason's impressive performance and I wanted him back this year," added Cole Scrogham. "He did a fantastic job during last year's rain soaked race and I look to Jason to be a key ingredient to our team success. He is a welcomed addition to our driver line-up."
Workman joins the other co-drivers Archie Urciuoli, Peyton Sellers and Steve Marshall in driving the Picchio-BMW. Workman is one of the new generation of young drivers who have amassed impressive experience levels of competing at the premier levels of sports car racing. The 27-year-old Atlanta resident has competed in the Grand-Am Prototype division as well as other premier sports car series. In the late 1990s, Workman campaigned as a young rookie American driver campaigning in Europe and is one of the few Americans who scored impressive results in the competitive European racing arena. He won the 1999 Scandinavian Formula Ford 2000 Championship. He totally dominated the series and no driver before or since Workman's campaign has equaled his series supremacy. It was this performance that launched his professional career upon his return to the United States.
