LOS ANGELES, Calif. (August 23, 2017) – Continuing his reputation as a road-course specialist, World Stage Racing’s Brian Wong will take to the wheel for the first time in 2017, driving the No. 41 MDM Motorsports Chevrolet at this weekend’s Road America 100. Returning to the ARCA Racing Series, where the Californian has had some of his best career results in stock car racing, ambitions are high as the series competes on the same stage as the popular NASCAR Xfinity Series.
“I couldn’t be more excited to return to Road America,” stated Wong. “It’s one of the most classic tracks in all of North America, and the level of competition in ARCA should make the racing unforgettable. It’s tough to say what to expect, but given our background and the quality of program we’re joining with, hopes are definitely high.”
Serving as the lone road course race of the ARCA Racing Series, the scenic and historic Road America circuit will play host to some of the most unique racing in the sport. With ARCA known as a feeder series to the higher levels of NASCAR, cultivating some of the biggest names in the sport, the goal for Wong is to show well in front of a large Wisconsin crowd, with their race taking place just hours before the headlining Xfinity Series event.
A road course specialist, Wong will return to the 4-mile circuit for the first time since 2012, where he finished in the top-six as part of the former American Le Mans Series. With a background that includes everything from sportscars, to prototypes, and of course stock cars, the Newport Beach native will return to his first ARCA race since 2015. His best finish to date has been runner-up.
With a car campaigned by ARCA stalwart MDM Motorsports, the whole effort is packaged by long-time supporter World Stage Racing. A motorsport entity focused on engagement with a digitally engaged, millennial audience, with a specialty in Asian American and Chinese relationships, World Stage will once again utilize the event as an opportunity to explore the business opportunities available in the sport.
Practice will begin this Friday, August 25, with race action taking place on Sunday, August 27 at 1PM ET, with live coverage available via MavTV.
