    Ozz Negri

    Date of Birth: May 29, 1964

    Birthplace: Sao Paulo, Brazil

    Resides: Aventura, Florida

    ozzDon't let Ozz Negri's quiet, humble manner deceive you. He's one of the fastest drivers out there. Negri has scored a podium finish in every season of IMSA competition going back to his first full effort in 2004. With a pedigree that includes rubbing elbows, and sometimes wheels, with guys like Barrichello, Coulthard, and de Ferran, Negri has proven quick in anything he's ever driven.

    Negri put in a signature drive to close out the 2006 season, battling through the darkness to hold a bevy of chasers at bay and take his first IMSA victory at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah. Negri has anchored the Michael Shank Racing driver lineup since joining the team in 2004, scoring podium finishes each season and five career victories, including the 2012 Rolex 24 and the 2016 season-ending Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta, which secured the North American Endurance Championship manufacturers’ title for Honda.

    A father of two daughters, Brazilian-born Negri has made his home in Miami. He maintains a strict training regimen and is a triathlete. He spends much of his time away from the track either training or serving as a driver coach.
