Reigning IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge champion Nate Stacy will make his series return this weekend at Mid-Ohio as part of a new GS class entry involving former series competitor Jack Roush Jr.
The duo have teamed up to drive a Ford Mustang GT4 entered by American Wheelman, which will debut in Saturday’s Mid-Ohio 120.
Stacy, who had been a longtime member of KohR Motorsports, won the 2020 GS class title with Kyle Marcelli in an Aston Martin Vantage GT4 but was not present for the start of the 2021 season, which saw KohR revert to a Mustang GT4 for Marcelli in the opening round at Daytona.
The Michigan-based team has since been absent from the Pilot Challenge grid.
Formed by former U.S. Marine Mike Hall, American Wheelman has supported Roush Jr.’s racing exploits dating back to 2019 and more recently was a part of Robb Holland’s Mustang GT4 entry into GT America powered by AWS earlier this year.
In addition to Stacy and Roush Jr., Joey Atterbury and Ryan Nash are understood to be part of the team’s GT4 project as well.
The No. 42 Mustang GT4 joins the GS class grid, which features 21 entries this weekend.
