LOS ANGELES (August 4, 2017) – Continuing a partnership that began last summer, Los Angeles-based World Stage Racing and North Carolina-based MDM Motorsports will once again team up for select NASCAR and associated races this summer. Continuing World Stage Racing’s roots in road racing, the organizations will join forces during the upcoming ARCA Road America 100 on August 27, as well as NASCAR Crafstman Truck Series action the following weekend, September 3, at the world-famous Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.
“I couldn’t be happier to get back in action,” stated World Stage Racing driver Brian Wong. “Going to road races with either of these series presents a really special dynamic, and an opportunity we really relish in. We’ve shown a lot of promise in previous road races, and we’re optimistic that between our own experience and the program that MDM has on offer, we should be competitive. I really appreciate what everyone at World Stage Racing has done to get us to this point, and I hope to show well.”
World Stage Racing re-enters the fray after nearly a decade in various categories of motorsport. An organization built of Asian-American leadership, the primary focus of the group has been on creating specialty engagement with a digitally-centered millennial audience, as well as on bridging the gap between Chinese and American business through motorsport.

At present, it is easily biggest story of the year within the sport. A decision by the McLaren-Honda F1 team to withdraw its star driver from the series’ crown-jewel Monaco Grand Prix in favor of another open wheel series is something definitely to take note of.
Within IndyCar racing, not a day of practice went by without continuous updates from the media on the Spaniard’s progress. During the race itself, his driving merited the headlines, leading much of the race until his engine expired just 20 laps from the end.
