Guy Cosmo will return to TUDOR United SportsCar Championship competition this weekend as he returns to race for Marsh Racing in the Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen.
Cosmo, a native New Yorker, first raced for the team at Sebring International Raceway in March, where a promising effort was cut short late in the race due to a mechanical set back.
The Glen visit marks a return to a longer format in the inaugural TUDOR Championship season as well as the third round of the Tequila Patron North American Endurance Cup, providing the Whelen squad with multiple ambitions to target on the traditional endurance event weekend.
Driving the No. 31 Whelen Motorsports Corvette DP, Cosmo will join full-season Whelen pilots Boris Said and Eric Curran, both of whom have enviable records of success at Watkins Glen in a wide range of equipment.
The Whelen Daytona Prototype campaign, which sees the team moving up to the top Prototype class in 2014 after closing the team’s GT efforts in winning style last year, will look to make a big impression as IMSA returns to the classic 3.4-mile track for round five of the 2014 championship.
“It was great to be back in a DP at Sebring with Whelen, and I’m very excited to get the call back for the 6 Hour,” said Cosmo.
“I’ve raced anything with wheels there and I can’t wait to get back. It’s always a great weekend and I’m lucky to have a lot of family and friends who always come out for the 6 Hour. 54 other cars on the track, it will be a busy one! We didn’t get to take it to the finish at Sebring but hopefully we can do that on Sunday.”
