Salt Lake City, UT — With the inaugural race of the 2015 season almost upon us, Skullcandy Team Nissan by CA Sport commits to Pirelli World Challenge. To campaign cars in GTS, TC.
After participating in select events in 2014, the decision to join the series full time was not taken lightly, but all the ingredients are in place for an exciting season. World Challenge continues to set the mark for production based racing and is the best platform to showcase our abilities and our partners.
Vesko Kozarov, best know for his no-holds-barred driving style, will lead the team in its GTS campaign, behind the wheel of a Nissan 370Z.
“I am super excited to have the opportunity to showcase the abilities of another great Nissan product. The 370Z is an underdog, but like all things Nissan, an overachiever. We started the fight at the last event of 2014 and I look forward to picking up where we left off and roughing up the usual suspects. It will be no easy task, but we are up for it.” – Vesko Kozarov, #23 Nissan 370Z GTS
In TC, the team will be led by 2014 TCA standout Jason Cherry, behind the wheel of the proven Nissan Altima. With his dedication and focus, Jason is sure to feature at the sharp end of the field. Besides getting attention for himself, Jason is on a mission to raise awareness for the Autism Society of America.
“I am looking forward to my best season yet. With 20 cars running in the TC class, I am ready to put on a show and hope to maintain the nickname I established this past season as “Mr. Excitement”. I am blessed to have this opportunity to work with Nissan and CA-Sport and I look forward to battling with some of the greats of motorsports.” – Jason Cherry, #13 Nissan Altima TC
“It is a great time for us to join the Pirelli World Challenge Series. Our participation last season convinced us that this is the place to be. Our successful efforts in TC and the strong debut of the team’s 370Z GTS platform in the memorable finale at Miller Motorsports Park make us eager to get things underway. We really are exited to let Vesko run wild. We expect strong competition, but know we have the skills and determination to make an impression. We are also looking forward to working with young driver Jason Cherry as he makes his mark in TC and raises awareness for a great organization. In 2014 he showed that he has the skills and mindset to run at the front and we look forward to providing him with a platform worthy of his aspirations .” — team owner Lara Tallman.
Look for Lara in select races over the course of the season.
