NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (June 8, 2016)- Continuing the team’s involvement in a variety of motorsport disciplines, World Stage Racing is proud to announce their return to NASCAR competition at the upcoming Sonoma round on June 24-25, 2016. As part of the highly attended NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend, sharing the event with NASCAR stars such as Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Kyle Busch, and Jimmie Johnson, the team will take to the track in the lead-up K&N Pro Series round.
“It’s awesome to return to NASCAR-sanctioned competition,” stated World Stage Racing driver Brian Wong. “It’s been almost a year since we took to the track in any type of stock car, but returning in equipment we’re familiar with and a track I’ve visited before, we should be able to hit the ground running. It’s a great opportunity to be in front of a huge crowd, and given our program, I think we’ll be able to deliver strong for all of our partners in attendance.”
No stranger to this type of competition, Brian Wong will take to the event as somewhat of a veteran of road racing. While NASCAR-style racing traditionally competes on oval circuits, the famed Sonoma Raceway is one of a few road courses that the series takes to every year. Being a specialist, Wong’s most recent NASCAR event was in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series round at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, the lone road course of the series. Previously, he has also taken podium finishes in the ARCA Racing Series at the New Jersey Motorsport Park road course, not to mention countless results in a number of sportscar disciplines, including being the first Chinese-American driver to take a podium in the former American Le Mans Series.

BRASELTON, Georgia (September 30, 2015)- Continuing his efforts to drive in a variety of machinery around the country, World Stage Racing’s Brian Wong will once again take the wheel in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America as a supporting event to this weekend’s Petit Le Mans at the famed Road Atlanta. Returning to O’Gara Motorsport in the No. 69 Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2, the 26-year old is in search of continued podium results.
“Anytime you can be part of an event like this you can’t help but be thankful,” stated Brian Wong. “Road Atlanta is one of the most unique and impressive tracks in the country, and there is simply no better weekend to be here than during Petit Le Mans. I have some great memories here over the years, and really hoping to add to that this week. The team at O’Gara Motorsport has done a great job getting the car ready, and my teammate Tom continues to progress during every weekend. There is some stiff competition here so you never know what can happen, but we’re definitely looking forward to it.”
AUSTIN, Texas (September 21)- Returning to the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America after a whirlwind month in which he’s competed in both NASCAR and Red Bull Global Rallycross competition, World Stage Racing’s Brian Wong would re-team with O’Gara Motorsport for the latest rounds at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. Driving with team owner Tom O’Gara in the No. 69 Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2, the duo would take fifth and sixth in class during the week’s double-header.
“Certainly we would have liked to have seen the podium, but we had clean series of races which is a positive,” stated Wong. “Tom did a great job as always, and he drove a smart race to stay clean and out of major trouble, which went a long way in our race week. Everyone on the team did a great job getting the car prepared, and we should be pleased with our race.”
As a double-header event set at the famed Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, Wong would team with O’Gara Motorsport for the fourth event in succession, driving alongside Tom O’Gara in the ProAm category. With Tom O’Gara having never driven at the circuit prior, the duo knew that running a clean race would be of key importance, with Tom doing an excellent job during both rounds.
