Rehagen Racing to Contest in the 2008 Ford Racing Mustang Challenge for the Miller Cup!
Livonia, MI. - Rehagen Racing announced today that they will bring a 4-car team to contest the Ford Racing Mustang Challenge for the Miller Cup. Grand American Road Racing Association is sanctioning the new eight-race series featuring the brand-new factory-built racecar, Ford Mustang FR500S. Limited numbers are available through Miller Motorsports Park and a select group of Ford Dealers. Rehagen will take delivery of the cars at the official launch for the series at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah on March 1.
"Given our experience with the new Mustang in other Grand Am sanctioned road racing events it only seemed natural that we contest for the Miller Cup with our current car owners and drivers Jim Click, Mike McGovern, and Jamie Slone. Completing our 4-car team will be car owner and driver Mike Harvison of the #11 USTEST Fuel Management Mustang FR500S, participant in both Porsche Club of America and Koni Challenge events. Our goal is to set the standard of performance in the series. Considering this is a spec series we will rely on our preparation, and chassis setup expertise to give our drivers every opportunity to win races. We look forward to the challenge as there are many quality teams and drivers in this series," said Dean Martin of Rehagen Racing. "We are thrilled that our car owners and drivers have chosen Rehagen Racing to provide them full racing services, technical and engineering support throughout the season in this new and exciting series."
Jamie Slone, car owner and driver of the #6 GoPro, goprocamera.com, Mustang FR500S said; "All the car owners and drivers agreed that Rehagen was a natural choice with their many years of Mustang experience and success in the Grand Am Koni Challenge series! We are ecstatic to be with Rehagen and look forward to the sprint format of racing."
The season kicks off at Road Atlanta on May 3, 2008.
Rehagen Racing is lead by Larry Rehagen, a Ford Engineering Technical Specialist, and former Ford SVT chassis engineer Dean Martin.
