Team Falken Tire,
Fall-Line Motorsports,
Courtney Musante Motorsports,
Multimatic Motorsports,
JDC/Miller Motorsports, Kelly-Moss Motorsports, Stevenson Motorsports, Tequila Patron ESM (Lites team only),

***Wayne Taylor Racing has also been busy testing this week, with Jordan and Ricky Taylor in action in the No. 10 Corvette DP at Putnam Park outside Indianapolis. The Taylor brothers also gave two-seater rides during the week to Konica Minolta guests.

***Sean Rayhall, who won last week’s second Indy Lights race at the Grand Prix of Indianapolis with 8Star Motorsports, has launched a crowdfunding campaign (linked here) in order to continue his season in the open-wheel championship. Neither Rayhall nor 8Star has made a TUDOR Championship appearance yet this year, although Rayhall may be back in a to-be-determined car by Watkins Glen.

***Voting for the Microsoft Visual Studio Team to Win Award from Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is now open. Wayne Taylor Racing won the award last race at Long Beach.
