Nissan GT Academy Champions Team Up To Race Altima For The 2014 Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Season

"I'm thrilled to be racing with Skullcandy Team Nissan for the rest of the 2014 season," said the Fresno native.  "They've got a solid platform and a real passion for racing which will serve us well.  As a driver, racing regularly in highly competitive fields will provide many opportunities for growth and refinement.  Partnering with Steve gives us a strong driver lineup and we will be working hard to get the Nissan Altima on the podium and further up the points standings in CTSCC."

Team owner Lara Tallman and pro driver Vesko Kozarov manage the Salt Lake City-based CA Sport racing shop.  The team finished first at the 2013 Daytona CTSCC event and grabbed a combined seven top ten finishes en route to 11 th place in season points. The team's No. 33 car, driven by Kozarov and Derek Jones, finished 4 th at Sebring last month.

"It's so great to have Steve and Bryan racing with us in the 34 Altima all season," said Tallman. "They bring a lot of energy and the interaction between all of drivers, combined with Vesko's experience is something that I believe will make the whole team better as we move forward."

First practice for the CTSCC takes place at 12:35 p.m. (PDT) on Friday, May 2, with qualifying the same day at 7:10 p.m.  The 2.5-hour race starts at 3:45 p.m. (PDT) on Saturday, May 3.  Full event information, as well as timing and scoring, can be located at www.imsa.com.

Television coverage of the race will be shown on a tape-delayed basis on FOX Sports 1 at 10 a.m. (EDT) Sunday, May 11.
