Paul Tracy is set for his Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America debut, having been confirmed in a Prestige Performance/Wayne Taylor Racing entry for this weekend’s round at Watkins Glen International.

The 2003 CART champion, who is part of NBC Sports’ NTT IndyCar Series broadcast team, will share driving duties of a Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO with William Hubbell in the Pro-Am class.

Tracy is filling in for Eric Curran, who started the Super Trofeo season in the No. 69 entry alongside Hubbell but will be focusing on his IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship commitments with Whelen Engineering Racing this weekend.

While having been inactive from full-time racing for some years, the 50-year-old Canadian most recently took part in the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour in a MARC Ford Mustang II entered by MARC Cars Australia.

A total of 19 cars are set for the second round of the Super Trofeo Season following the season-opener at Barber Motorsports Park in April.

It includes the return of Dream Racing to the Pro class, with Cedric Sbirrazzuoli and Paolo Ruberti teaming up in the No. 27 entry.

Change Racing’s Corey Lewis and Richard Antinucci hold a three-point lead over the PPM duo of Brandon Gdovic and Conor Daly, with both crews claiming a win apiece in Barber.

Other additions to the entry list for Watkins Glen include Bruno Junqueira in the No. 53 Prestige/WTR entry alongside Bradley Baker and IMSA GT Daytona rookie Ryan Hardwick returning to series competition in one of Dream’s Lamborghinis alongside Supercross champion Chad Reed.

Track action gets underway on Thursday with a pair of practice sessions.
