Sitting 2nd in Championship, Team Looks to Continue Momentum
Braselton, GA (March 12, 2021) – The 2021 racing season kicked off strong for MLT Motorsports, with Dakota Dickerson and Josh Sarchet capturing a second place finish in the opening round of the IMSA Prototype Challenge at the Roar Before the 24 at Daytona International Speedway in early January. The pair heads to Sebring for round #2 on March 13th, well positioned in second place in the championship.
MLT Motorsports has seen previous success at the fabled Florida race track, having finished in 2nd position in the team’s series debut in 2019 and just off the podium (4th) in last season’s July race.
This will be the team’s second race in their new Ligier chassis, which they took delivery of just prior to the Roar Before the 24. The #54 car will feature an all new livery at Sebring – with the now familiar orange, purple and black color scheme.
“We had a great start to the season with the second place finish in Daytona,” said team manager Eric VanBibber. “We had a bit of break between races so we had time to fully sort the car out and feel we are even more prepared for this race. Looking forward to challenging for the win this weekend.”
Qualifying for the race takes place Saturday morning at 10:10 with the race later in the afternoon. You can watch the race live on NBC Gold at 3:05 PM ET, Saturday, March 13th.
