Action Express Racing Set for IMSA Return in 2020

Ahead of the final race of the 2019 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship this weekend at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta (October 12th, NBC, 12:00 PM ET),  Action Express Racing has announced that the team will most likely be returning in 2020 with only one car. 

The No. 31 Whelen Engineering Racing Cadillac DPi.V.R will be co-driven by 2018 IMSA Prototype Champion Felipe Nasr and 2016 Rolex 24 At Daytona winner Pipo Derani for the full 2020 season schedule, with the team expecting to finalize the driver roster for the endurance events in the coming weeks. 

Action Express Racing has been a competitive force in the IMSA Prototype ranks since making its winning debut in the 2010 Rolex 24 At Daytona. The team captured the 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2018 IMSA Team and Driver Championships, as well as the 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup titles. 

“Action Express racing has fielded two cars in every event since 2011,” said team owner Bob Johnson. “Beginning in 2020, it is likely that Action Express will become a single car team. We have worked for many months to find ways to remain a two car team. To be fair to all involved, we must report that the No. 31 Whelen Engineering Racing Cadillac will probably be the single entry as managed by Action Express Racing in 2020.  We want to thank all of our fans and every one of our great drivers, partners and crew members that have supported our two car team along the way.”

On-track activity for Petit Le Mans begins on Thursday, with practice at 10:50 a.m., 2:50 p.m., and a 90-minute night session starting at 7:30 p.m. (all times ET). Friday includes final practice at 11:15 a.m., with a 15-minute DPi qualifying session at 4:45 p.m.
