Championship Friday for MLT Motorsports

Final Round of IMSA Prototype Challenge Series to Determine Champion

The final round of the IMSA Prototype Challenge Series will be contested this Friday at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta. MLT Motorsports heads into the race weekend in second place, a mere six points behind K2R Motorsports. Drivers Dominic Cicero and Dakota Dickerson have their eyes on the prize and look to capture the team’s first championship in the series.

In just the second season of competition in the IMSA Prototype Challenge series, MLT Motorsports has made a name for itself with multiple podiums and most recently a repeat victory at Mid-Ohio Sportscar Course (2019 & 2020). With only six points separating the top two teams, it is as close as it gets heading in to the final round.

Dickerson is also in a heated battle for the driver championship with Matthew Bell and Naveen Rao, so there is a lot on the line for the Californian. Having won the F3 Americas Championship in 2019, Dickerson is looking to continue his climb through the ranks of American road racing.

“This has been a challenging year for everyone involved in racing”, said Eric VanBibber, team manager MLT Motorsports. “Schedule changes, travel challenges, COVID-19 protocols, and more. Through it all, our drivers and crew have performed each and every weekend. It has been a team effort to get us to the position we are in – competing for the overall championship – and it will take one more team effort to get us across the finish line.”

Watch the race from Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta live on TrackPass and NBC Gold, Friday at 9:05 am EDT. The race will be rebroadcast on NBCSN on Tuesday October 27 at 2:00 pm EDT.
