James Sofronas has been around the Pirelli World Challenge championships in one form or another for nearly a quarter century. From the mid-’90s when he and brother Brad raced under the Greek Brothers Racing banner in Touring Car Oldsmobiles until winning the GTA championship in 2017, he’s dabbled in the series often, if sporadically. In the meantime, he was building one of the premier tuning and racing shops on the West Coast.
“Even though I’ve been running in World Challenge for 23 years, I think I’ve only done eight full-season runs to go for a championship,” Sofronas says. “We were second in ’09, second in ’13, so to win it here in the Pro-Am class was gratifying, because this year I did very little testing. The business has been thriving, so all my racing has been done on the weekends here in Pirelli World Challenge.”
