Corey Lewis will return to Paul Miller Racing for the Michelin Endurance Cup races next year, reuniting the team’s 2018-GT Daytona class championship-winning trio.
Confirmed on Tuesday, the Lamborghini GT3 Junior will join full-season drivers Bryan Sellers and Madison Snow at the wheel of the No. 48 Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo for the four long-distance race, beginning with next month’s IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season-opening Rolex 24 at Daytona.
It will mark the 28-year-old’s third consecutive season with the team, with Lewis set to defend his title in Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America in 2020 as well.
Lewis stepped up as a substitute to the injured Ryan Hardwick in the second half of this year, teaming with Sellers for a class victory at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in September.
“It’ll be great to continue our success that we all shared during the 2018 race season,”Lewis said. “I’m so thankful to Mr. Miller for the opportunity.
“I’m very much looking forward to kicking things off at the Roar with the whole Paul Miller Racing team.
Team owner Paul Miller added: “Corey has played an integral part in the team’s success over the past few years, and we’re thrilled to have him back for 2020.
“He is a big part of the Paul Miller Racing family, and although 2019 was a bit of a rollercoaster ride for the team, his and Bryan’s win at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca was the highlight to cap off a year of really hard work for the team.
“Corey has a strong history racing with both Bryan and Madison, even winning a Super Trofeo championship with Madison. He’s a very talented and successful driver and a perfect fit for our team. “
As previously announced, Lamborghini factory driver Andrea Calderelli will complete the team’s lineup for Daytona.
