Tyler Maxson has been confirmed with Robert Noaker Racing for the inaugural season of Mustang Challenge, joining the team’s stable of Ford Mustang Dark Horse Rs in IMSA’s newest sanctioned one-make series that’s set to kick off at Mid-Ohio next month.

The 19-year-old rising sports car racing star, a regular in IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge competition, will pilot the RNR’s No. 74 Mustang, reconnecting with Noaker, who were competitors in their karting days.

“I can’t thank them for the opportunity,” said Maxson. “I am anxious to get started and excited for the opportunity. Also, reconnecting with Robert after battling wheel-to-wheel in karting and working together in the same program is cool.

“I am excited to return to sprint racing with a single-driver format. It puts the control back in my hands. It has been a long time since I have been in a spec series, and I look forward to the challenge.”

Noaker is set to also drive in the series, having been named on Ford’s initial drivers entry list released earlier this year.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to have Tyler on our team,” said Noaker. “Having known Tyler for over ten years, we have kept an eye on his progress and have been impressed.

“We know he can win races and compete for the championship. Having Tyler on the team will speed up our program with his feedback on the car in the new Mustang Challenge series.”
