Daytona Beach, Fla. (18 November 2015) – Just six weeks following the final race of 2015, Michael Shank Racing with Curb/Agajanian was already back in action at Daytona International Speedway this week in preparation for the 2016 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season.
Full-season drivers John Pew and Ozz Negri as well as Rolex 24 at Daytona driver AJ Allmendinger were on hand for the two-day test at the 3.56-mile roval course as the team took its first laps with its new Honda 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 Prototype engine. Michael Shank Racing also received a brand new tub from Ligier prior to the test.
Despite some rain showers that moved into the area on Wednesday, the team got plenty of drive time in with Pew, Negri, and Allmendinger each turning laps.
All three drivers as well as Team Owner Mike Shank were pleased with how the test went and are looking forward to the next three-day test in January with the annual ‘Roar Before the 24’ test days prior to the season-opening Rolex 24 At Daytona.
