COCONUT CREEK, Fla. – The Rebel Rock Racing team has been working hard since the last Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge event at Sebring (Fla.) Int’l Raceway and have announced plans to field four entries in the upcoming race at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, Calif.
This is the first time that Rebel Rock Racing is making the 3,000-mile trip from their Florida shop to California to race at Laguna Seca. Rebel Rock Racing will add another ST (Street Tuner) class car to their arsenal, making it a four-car team and thus one of the largest Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge teams in the IMSA paddock.
The fourth entry for Rebel Rock Racing will be the No. 87 Rebel Rock Racing/The Coalition Group Ingersoll Rand/SMS Audio Porsche Cayman to be driven by Miles Maroney and Al Carter. Carter will be a busy man at Laguna Seca, likely starting the race in the team’s No. 7 car (shared with Brett Sandberg) before finishing the race in the No. 87. He also plans to race in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship and Lamborghini Super Trofeo races at Laguna Seca.
“Laguna is the first race track I ever drove at a Skip Barber school, and is still my favorite track to drive,” said Carter. “I’m eEexcited about our Rebel Rock race weekend, as not only is my and Brett Sandberg’s No. 7 Porsche primed and ready, but our Rebel Rock team expands to four cars. We have some cool, young, fast talent joining the Rebel Rock family with the addition of Corey Lewis and Miles Maroney. Plus my crazy self just might be racing too many cool cars this weekend.”
The team will also field the No. 08 for Kyle Marcelli and Martin Barkey and the No. 88 for team owner and recording artist Jim Jonsin and Corey Lewis.
“I have been spending a lot of time in the Studio and I’m looking forward to a break; nothing better than a race in Northern California,” said Jonsin. “I want to thank, Rick Deman, Mike Morgan, Louis Malone and the fellas over at KMW for working long hours to get our new Cayman ST car ready for round three. This car is awesome. Corey and I should fare very well. I am excited that Al Carter is doing double duty with the 7 and the 87 car.”
