Magnus Racing has added Bryan Sellers to its driving team for this weekend's Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series Sahlen's Six Hours at the Glen. The native of Braselton, Ga., a regular in the American Le Mans Series this season, will drive the No. 44 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup alongside Magnus' John Potter and Craig Stanton for the endurance race. The trio will attempt to finish what the team started last year, when Stanton – who took the class pole and set a GT-class record in the Magnus Racing Porsche – and Potter were joined by Jeroen Bleekemolen and dominated the first half of the race before their progress was slowed by an electrical problem.
“Yes, you could say there is a sense of unfinished business for us at the Six Hours,” said Potter, who drove a strong stint during a brief rain shower that fell in the second hour of last year's race. “We've had our eye on it all season and securing Bryan as our third driver means we have a really, really strong driver lineup. We know how fast Bryan is in a Porsche – we raced against him at this year's Rolex 24 at Daytona, and he also co-drove with me when we debuted our Cayman last season. I'm really excited to see how well our Magnus Racing Porsche does this weekend.”
“I have always wanted to win at Watkins Glen and Magnus offers that opportunity," said Sellars. "They have proven over and over again that they are an incredible team and have everything needed to win races. When I received the call asking if I could drive with them for the Six Hour, it was an easy decision. John and Craig are a great duo and I am proud to be joining them.”
The Sahlen's Six Hours at the Glen will air on a delay basis on SPEED, with the broadcast of the entire six hours of the race beginning on Saturday, June 4, at 4:30 p.m. ET.
