Can't Stop, Won't Stop: KohR Motorsports gears up for the 2019 season

Thursday, January 10, 2019

After an impressive introduction, Kyle Marcelli and Nate Stacy announce that they will partner up again to race for KohR Motorsports at the wheel of the teams #60 Ford Mustang GT4 in the upcoming 2019 IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge. 

Dean Martin, team principal, had this to say: “I’m looking forward to 2019. We had good results last year and I expect that we will have a better year in 2019. Kyle Marcelli is as solid as they come behind the wheel. Nate Stacy (the 19-year-old kid) is more mature and more focused now than he ever has been. We know the Ford Mustang GT4 very well after racing it for two full seasons, so we are more focused on the team process and performance in the pits. We are thrilled to have such great relationships with Ford, Multimatic, Forgeline Wheels, Brembo, Pagid, and Michelin as we move into 2019.”

For both drivers, the main emotion going into this season is determination.

“I'm thrilled to return to KohR Motorsport for 2019. And, to be paired alongside the young, up and coming racer, Nate Stacy,” says Marcelli. “Together, we have some unfinished business.

Although 2018 was a fantastic season, earning three victories, winning the manufactures championship and finishing runner up in the driver and team championships, we know that we left a few good results slip through the cracks. The Ford Mustang GT4 is a solid platform for the category and a lot of fun to race. I expect the continuity of returning to the series with the same package should net us some good results this year."

“I am excited to be driving with Kyle Marcelli in the upcoming 2019 season.” Stacy adds. “Last season we had several good results, and I am eager to come into the 2019 season with that momentum. This season the main focus will be less on the car, and more the strategy. I’m beyond ready to get the 2019 season rolling.”

When asked about the specific strategies they hope to use for a 2019 championship win, both drivers said that they were “going to focus on the details”.

The 2019 IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge kicks off January 24-27, 2019 with the BMW Endurance Challenge at Daytona, a four-hour endurance race format.
