RG Racing has finalized its lineup for this weekend’s Rolex 24 at Daytona, which will see David Cheng join Mark Kvamme, Shane Lewis and team owner/driver Robert Gewirtz in the No. 66 Riley-Dinan DP for its debut race.
Cheng, a two-time and defending Asian Le Mans Series champion, will be making his DP debut after taking part in last year’s race in PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports’ Prototype Challenge entry.
For Gewirtz, this weekend’s TUDOR United SportsCar Championship season opener marks the beginning of a new chapter for his tight-knit Ohio-based team.
“It’s a huge undertaking, but things have come together pretty well,” said Gewirtz. “It’s been hectic but rewarding and we’ve worked hard to put everything together.
“Our final driver line up came together later than we hoped but David has experience in a lot of different cars and I’m glad to welcome him to the team. I’ve dreamed so long about running this race, it’s hard to believe that it’s about to happen!
“Being able to compete at Daytona with teams that have this high level of talent and preparation is incredible, and I’m very excited to get the week started!”
The team hopes to compete in the entire four-round Tequila Patron North American Endurance Cup this year.
