All four of Ford’s NASCAR drivers will be back behind the wheel of Ford Mustang GT4s in next weekend’s Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge season-ending Fox Factory 120 at Road Atlanta.

As a result, Multimatic Motorsports will return to a three-car GS class operation for the first time since the season-opener at Daytona in January.

Ty Majeski, who split driving duties of the No. 15 Mustang GT4 with Chase Briscoe, will be in separate entries, with Majeski teaming up with Cole Custer and Austin Cindric also returning for the first time since Daytona to join Briscoe in the No. 22 car.

Briscoe is fresh off victory in last weekend’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at the Charlotte Roval, having put this year’s Continental Tire Challenge experience to use.

Scott Maxwell, who has been the full-season driver in the No. 15 Mustang GT4, will sit out the Road Atlanta.

39 Entries for Season Finale

A total of 39 cars are on the entry list for the Oct. 12 race, including the series debut of PF Racing, which has entered a Mustang GT4 for Jade Buford and James Pesek.

The No. 38 BGB Motorsports Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR returns to action, while Indy Dontje is back in the No. 57 Winward Racing/HTP Motorsport Mercedes-AMG GT4 and Paul Holton in the No. 76 Compass Racing McLaren 570S GT4.

RS1’s No. 18 Porsche GT4, meanwhile, will see an all-new driver lineup in Curt Swearingin and Jason Hart.

The TCR class will see an increased nine-car entry thanks to the return of the two Rumcastle Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR entries and the No. 11 RS Werkes Racing Audi RS 3 LMS TCR of Mikey Taylor and Tyler Stone.

ST, in its final race, will feature five entries.
