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.
MDM Motorsports is a renowned, grassroots-oriented stock car racing team, with a number of programs spread across different series. Currently, MDM Motorsport fields their primary entries in the ARCA Racing Series as well as K&N Pro Series, both known for their development programs that have cultivated some of NASCAR’s biggest stars.
Together the duo will field entries in both the ARCA Racing Series as well as NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, with ambitions for driver Brian Wong to show well as a road racing specialist. Wong, a long-time driver for World Stage Racing, has extensive NASCAR and sportscar experience, including a podium at the famed Petit Le Mans, and competing at some of the biggest events in the world including The Rolex 24 at Daytona, 12 Hours of Sebring, Grand Prix of Long Beach, and international sportscar races in China, Europe, and beyond.
Competing at the Road America 100, Wong will be part of the wildly popular NASCAR-sanctioned Xfinity Champioship race weekend, competing on the same day as the marque event. As a result, it’s expected the event will happen in front of nearly 100,000 spectators in tow.
The following weekend, Brian will be ready for the famed NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, the fourth race at the track in as many years. Serving as a little bit of unfinished business for Brian, the Truck series will arrive at the only road course race of the season, and at one of the most storied venues in all of North America. The local Canadian fanbase is infamous for their love of motorsports, with the event expected to be the highest-attented of the year.
