KohR Motorsports has confirmed a second Ford Mustang GT4 for the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge season, with Rod Randall and Kenny Wilden set to pilot the No. 59 entry for the entire ten-round championship.

The pairing will be joined by Rod’s son, DJ Randall, for the four-hour races, including next weekend’s season-opener at Daytona.

The news follows confirmation of the team’s No. 60 Mustang GT4 entry of Kyle Marcelli and Nate Stacy, who will return for a second consecutive season.

“We had good results last year and I expect that we will have more in 2019,” said team principal Dean Martin.

“I have a great history with Kenny. We had a great race with Rod, DJ, and Kenny at Encore last year. As this season progresses, the team will gel even more, and we’ll expect a good result at every event throughout the season.”

The father-and-son Randalls and Wilden are coming off a podium finish in the inaugural Michelin IMSA SportsCar Encore at Sebring last year.

“We are excited to be running with Dean and the entire KohR Motorsports team,” said Rod Randall.

“They are all dedicated and hard working with great focus. We are all determined and focused on the details, with goals of great finishes.”

Wilden added: “For me, this is a reunion of sorts in a couple of different ways. We’ve had some success racing Mustangs in the past, including a championship in 2009 with Dean.

“It’s great to be reuniting back with the Ford Mustang and the KohR Motorsports team under Dean’s leadership on the 10-year anniversary season of our championship.

“How cool would it be to Have a 10th anniversary Championship in the year of the 50th anniversary of IMSA?”
