Pew rejoins Michael Shank Racing to contest the full 2013 Rolex Sports Car Series season, sharing the Daytona Prototype driving duties with Ozz Negri. Pew took his first Rolex Sports Car Series race win in 2008, adding to a list of motorsports accomplishments spread across a wide variety of categories. Pew won the 2012 50th Anniversary running of the Rolex 24 at Daytona with co-drivers Ozz Negri, AJ Allmendinger, and Justin Wilson. Pew’s motorsports career is a logical extension of his off-shore pursuits, having sailed over 100,000 miles throughout the North Atlantic and North and South Pacific Oceans with his wife Stephanie.

Don't let 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 Rolex Series 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 Rolex Series victory at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah. And as many in the paddock will attest, it isn't just Negri's lightning quick lap times that are impressive-he's also a highly sought-after driver coach, and clearly knows how to get the most out of a race car while making sure there's something in reserve for the finish. A father of two, Brazilian-born Negri has made his home in Miami. After taking pole position for the 2008 Rolex 24 At Daytona, Negri scored another decisive win driving with Patterson at NJMP to victory. Negri will return to partner with John Pew in the No. 60 LiveOn.Com Ford-Riley. Follow Ozz on Twitter: @OzzNegri Official Web Site: negrijr.com

He has finished runner-up in the endurance classic twice - in 2006 with Michael Shank Racing and in 2010 with Chip Ganassi Racing.Wilson competes in the IndyCar series and when he is not racing, he spends his free time at home in Colorado with his wife and two daughters.
Allmendinger returned to Michael Shank Racing for his eighth consecutive Rolex 24 At Daytona event with the team in 2013. He has led laps in each Rolex 24 event and won the 2012 50th Anniversary of the race along with co-drivers Ozz Negri, John Pew, and Justin Wilson. The group placed third in the 2013 event.He is the second-youngest driver to win the Formula Atlantic Championship and after climbing the open-wheel racing ladder and competing in Champ Car for three years, Allmendinger made the transition to stock cars in 2007. He is set to run a partial NASCAR season in 2013 as well as a partial IndyCar season with Penske Racing - including the Indianapolis 500.
