Former IMSA GT Daytona class champions Bryan Sellers and Madison Snow will be reunited in Paul Miller Racing’s Lamborghini Huracán GT3 Evo in next weekend’s Michelin SportsCar Encore at Sebring International Raceway.

Sellers and Snow will make their first start together since winning the 2018 WeatherTech SportsCar Championship title.

Snow, who is Silver-rated by the FIA, was forced out of a full-season drive with the team this year due to his IMSA-adjusted Gold rating, which has been dropped for the four-hour enduro according to a statement from the sanctioning body.

An update to IMSA’s 2020 sporting regulations includes a greater recognition of a driver’s funding contribution to a team budget, when taking into consideration possible ratings deviations made by the IMSA Driver Evaluation Committee.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Madison back to Paul Miller Racing and looking forward to seeing both him and Bryan on board the Lamborghini at the Michelin Encore,” said team owner Paul Miller.

“Bryan and Madison formed a great partnership at Paul Miller Racing for three years, and we’re thrilled to see them team up next week at Sebring. Both were part of our Sebring 12 Hour winning team in 2018, and we’d love to get another win at the amazing Sebring circuit.”

The 23-year-old returned to the wheel of the team’s Lamborghini in a test at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta this summer, while having also been present at the the penultimate round of the season at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.

“I look forward to getting back behind the wheel with Bryan Sellers,” Snow said. “Bryan has helped me get to where I am today and has been the largest influence on my career.

“Everyone on the Paul Miller Racing Team is someone that I love to spend time with, so when this opportunity presented itself, it was something I couldn’t resist.”

Sellers added: “The special thing about all of this is that the older you get, you realize the importance of the people you have around you.

“Madison brings something to the team that would not and does not exist unless he’s there.

“We’re bouncing off of what was a mixed season for Paul Miller Racing, and we need to find our way back on track and hopefully take advantage of this opportunity at Sebring.”

The team’s 2020 driver lineup has yet to be confirmed, although Ryan Hardwick, who was set to contest the full season before being ruled out due to a knee injury, has already announced a move to Wright Motorsports.
