HIGH POINT, N.C. – Silver Hare Racing has announced that Tyler Kicera will pilot the team’s No. 5 Ford Mustang for the full Trans-Am Series TA2 season.
In addition, the team confirmed that nine-time ARCA Menards Series race winner Michael Self has joined the team as general manager.
Kicera earned a victory earlier this year at Virginia Int’l Raceway and later amassed five wins in the inaugural Trans-Am by Pirelli Esports Championship en route to second place in the final standings.
“First of all, I have to thank Maurice and Laura Hull for the incredible opportunity to join Silver Hare Racing for the full 2021 TA2 season,” said Kicera. “I’ve been working hard on and off track for a long time to secure a full season drive. I can’t even begin to describe my level of excitement now that it’s finally come to fruition. Along with crew chief Jeff Holley, they run a first-class organization and it’s a privilege to drive for them and represent Silver Hare Racing. The start of the season can’t come soon enough, I have no doubt we will be a dominant force in TA2.”
After two-straight runner-up championship finishes in the ARCA Menards Series standings, Self joins the team as general manager. Self brings years of knowledge and experience in multiple forms of motorsports.
“I’m really excited and thankful to have the opportunity to work in a management position at Silver Hare,” Self said. “I’ve been fortunate to have success in managing the Sinclair Oil sponsorship in ARCA the last couple of years, and I’m eager to continue applying that experience in the business side of racing; while continuing to learn from Maurice and Laura who have ultra-successful careers in business administration.
“I think they’re going about things the right way with Silver Hare, developing a TA2 team that will be competitive not only on the track, but off the track with drivers and business partners in a market that will hopefully continue to grow as road racing becomes more prominent in NASCAR and the United States.”
