I didn't see this anywhere else but for those who loved the old Red Dragon it seems to be no more, "JDC’s use of the No. 84, rather than No. 99 as seen last season, comes in the wake of former sponsor GAINSCO opting to withdraw from all racing activities." From Racer's announcement of their driver lineup for 2019 article.

#84: Steven Simpson, Simon Trummer with Chris Miller (NAEC) and Juan Piedrahita for Daytona
#84 Misha Goikhburg, Tristan Vautier with Rubens Barrichello and Devlin DeFrancesco for Daytona, Juan Piedrahita for remaining NAEC schedule

That would be #84 for one and #85 for the other then I presume?

D'oh, yes it would be. 85 is first, 84 is second line.

I wonder how much time the team had to prep for this? Coming up with another season's budget has to be difficult. So two yellow Caddy's on the grid. Was this the first time we heard of Rubens being in the car? That is a pretty big score for one of the "small" teams.

Be pretty funny if Defrancesco's family business shows up as a sponsor! Would be like a flashback to F1 circa 1977, lol.


As for the Red Dragon, that was always Bob Stallings spending Gainsco money in his role as Executive Chairman and it had been drastically reduced over the last few years. Maybe the board pulled the plug or maybe some other factor at play.

It sounded like the announcement was buried in the tweet and PR regarding the driver lineups so think they kept it under wraps if they knew. Gainsco is pulling all motorsports money so think it is a change like ESM losing Patron, the company is going another direction and it is out of the hands of the man previously writing the checks. MP sounded surprised in a comment on the article so I'm thinking it was not known prior, yeah I'm surprised he reads and responds on comments too but I've seen it a reasonable amount lately from him.

Big test day this coming Tuesday for Michelin at Daytona with, according to IMSA, 30 teams across 3 series. Anybody from here attending?

Hopefully our lord and savior, Lanky Turtle, will be present to capture some action. Other than that, we can only hope that Marshall Pruett will be there to capture some trackside footage maybe?

In other news, here is an interesting article I ran into on the nascar website earlier today...now that Kurt Busch is employed with Chip Ganassi Racing for next year's cup season, the opportunity to run other marquee events for Chip such as the Rolex 24 and the Indy 500 are but a simple ask away it seems!

I haven't been in a few years. 'Don't know if you can now.
I used to catch tests when you could walk out to one section of the grandstands (forget the name of the section) from the shop any day of the week to check out the track, but I hear that's changed. I'll give 'em a call and give it a thought (4 hours north of me) if it's can do somehow. Do you know if it's open to the public?

Got a link, by chance?

I don't think the track is open to the public. Hope I'm wrong. Got Florida vacation starting this weekend.

No link, no mention of the public, heck it wasn't even on IMSA's own competitor web site as of a day or two ago.

Cool! Alexander Rossi will be driving for Roger Penske for the IMSA Endurance races! Although he is only tabbed to drive at the Rolex 24 and at Sebring. No mention of the 6 Hours of the Glen or Petit.

I'm surprised the article did not mention Rossi's previous experience in Endurance racing, specifically his '13 Le Mans drive in a Greaves Caterham/Zytek P2 as well as the '14 Rolex 24 in the Deltawing (I forgot about that deltawing drive).

Hope there is no rain during the WEC and IMSA qualifying sessions at all in March. We have to get a straight up chance to compare and contract lap times. Will be one of the most fun aspects of the joint weekend. I assume they will run the same track configuration. Most fun will be to compare LMP1 privateer vs DPI and all of the GT classes too.
