PATASKALA, Ohio – Michael Shank Racing has confirmed that for the sixth consecutive year, Curb Records will return as a team partner.
The organization will continue as Michael Shank Racing with Curb/Agajanian for the 2016 WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season.
The relationship between Mike Curb and Michael Shank Racing dates back to 2011 when Curb Records joined the team for the Rolex 24 At Daytona with A.J. Allmendinger, Justin Wilson, and Michael McDowell driving the group’s No. 6 Daytona Prototype.
Curb has a long history of success with over 40 years of involvement in motorsports. As a partner with Michael Shank Racing, Curb Records has added a Rolex 24 At Daytona victory (2012) to its tally as well as 11 podium finishes.
As Michael Shank Racing with Curb/Agajanian enters the 2016 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Chamiponship in its second year of competition with its No. 60 Honda-Ligier P2 machine, the organization eyes even more success in the year to come.
“Michael Shank has a first-class effort, and we are proud to continue to be a part of it,” said Mike Curb. “We have had the honor to achieve many great things in the world of motorsports and we’re looking forward to adding to that list with Michael Shank Racing again this year. We’ve had a lot of great memories with Michael Shank Racing including the big Rolex 24 win in 2012. Last year was an exciting one when the team transitioned from the Daytona Prototype to the P2 car. Starting off the year with the Pole at Daytona was a great highlight. We’re looking forward to adding more to that list this year.”
“It is great to have Mike (Curb) back with us again in 2016,” said Team Owner Mike Shank. “It is always gratifying to have someone who has supported you in the past, come back and step up again. We are all very excited about what is to come this year. We have a year under our belts now with the P2 car. It was a good first year and we’re going to build on that in 2016. We think we have one of our strongest driver line-ups in place for the Rolex 24 At Daytona and we’re excited to kick off the 2016 IMSA season next week.”
