Now in its third decade of racing, the MSR team continues to grow its footprint in sports car competition with wins in some of the sport’s biggest races. The team is hoping for another win as they kick off the 2019 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season in Daytona.
“Having LaSalle Solutions join us for the Rolex is really something special,” said Mike Shank, co-owner of Meyer Shank Racing. “It’s a group of people that, despite being in a different field than us, have very similar values and ethics, which is why I think this partnership is going to be so strong. We are hoping to go after that championship after coming so close last year, and hopefully we can start the year off strong with LaSalle at the Rolex 24.”
The annual Rolex 24 at Daytona brings together some of the biggest names in racing and the world’s most advanced sports cars for 24 hours of action-packed racing. Mario Farnbacher, Trent Hindman, Justin Marks and AJ Allmendinger will combine efforts behind the wheel of the No. 86 Acura LaSalle Solutions NSX GT3 Evo entry in the 2019 IMSA season opener.
“Everyone at LaSalle Solutions is very excited about teaming up with Meyer Shank Racing for the Rolex 24 at Daytona this year,” said Steven Robb, president of the Solutions Group at LaSalle Solutions. “Over the past four years, we have brought our partners and customers to Daytona to experience a truly unique event. This year, with the MSR team and the drivers associated with the No. 86 Acura NSX GT3 Evo, we believe our attendees will experience 24 hours of competitive racing and hopefully a podium finish.”
LaSalle Solutions will make its debut on the No. 86 Acura NSX GT3 Evo for the Rolex 24 At Daytona on January 26–27.
