POMPANO BEACH, Calif. – Starworks Motorsports has locked Parker Chase in for the full IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season.

Chase was originally scheduled to co-drive the No. 8 Audi R8 LMS in just the endurance races on the IMSA schedule, but will now contest the full season with the team.

His primary sponsor, Vertical Bridge, has committed to the upcoming rounds at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Detroit, Watkins Glen Int’l and Road America, with hopes to fill out the remainder of the races.

“I’m very excited to be racing in the sprint races as well as the four endurance races,” said Chase. “I can’t thank Vertical Bridge Enough for their continued support this year, and I’m ready to get on track at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course next week.”

Chase will race alongside sports car racing veteran Ryan Dalziel, who is also committed for the remainder of the season.

“We’re excited to officially have Parker secured as Ryan Dalziel’s co-driver,” said team owner Peter Baron. “He’s a great young talent and shows strong speed everywhere we go. He and Ryan have proven to be a great combination, and hopefully our luck turns as we begin the next segment of races so we can fight for some valuable points. We’re looking forward to fighting at tracks where our Audi R8 LMS GT3 EVO will be competitive.”
