LINCOLNSHIRE, IL – Back-to-back Pirelli World Challenge GTS Champion team Blackdog Speed Shop is proud to announce that they will return in 2015 to defend their GTS Championship with a two-car Chevrolet Camaro Z/28.R effort.

“We’ve been working this offseason to build two new race cars, switching from the Camaro ZL1 platform to the new Camaro Z/28.R,” says Team Manager Ray Sorenson. “We completed some of the development late last season and hope that we’re ready for the competition level that is certain to make this year one of the best seasons ever in PWC!”

Unfortunately Lawson Aschenbach will not be able to drive with us this season due to conflicts in scheduling with Stevenson Motorsports Team Chevy in The Continental Tire series.

2012 PWC Touring Car Champion Michael Cooper will be joining Tony Gaples for 2015 in bringing the Z/28.R’s into the Pirelli World Challenge GTS class driving the #10 Blackdog Speed Shop Chevrolet Camaro Z/28.R.

“I’m excited to be given the opportunity to represent Blackdog Speed Shop with the new Camaro Z/28.R in the PWC, “ said Cooper. “I’m looking forward to demonstrating the performance of the new Camaro in the battle to win my second PWC Championship.”
