Meyer Shank Racing is back at Mid-Ohio, and hoping for a little hometown advantege. The IMSA Weathertech Sports Car Championship will run race number 4 at Mid-Ohio

This is the first home race for MSR with the new No. 60 Acura ARX-05 DPi. This race is big for MSR and they hope to represent Acura well in the their backyard

Olivier Pla will make his debut at Mid-Ohio, and to prepare for this race, Meyer-Shank Racing had a one day test

“I’m looking forward to racing at Mid-Ohio as it will be the home race for MSR and my first race around this track.” said Pla. “We tested here, so I had the chance to learn the track which I actually quite like. As always, the race will be super tight and intense and we’ll focus on managing traffic the best we can.

Experience

The experience at Mid-Ohio for MSR comes from Dane Cameron after having won with the Penske Acura in 2019. Cameron now hopes to add a second Mid-Ohio win to his resume and to give MSR it’s first hometown victory.

“Mid-Ohio should be a good place for us to build on the momentum of our Sebring podium. Said Cameron. Plus we were able to give Oli (Pla) a few extra laps for his first race at Mid-Ohio. Camron added, I know the ARX-05 is well suited to the track, so it presents a good opportunity to get that first win.

Cameron said it would be extra special to do it in Acura and Meyer Shank Racing’s backyard.”

The Acura Sports Car Challenge at Mid-Ohio is set for a green flag start on Sunday, May 16 at 2:30pm ET on NBCSN.

If it races, I'll write about it, talk about it or shoot it with a camera.

I began pursuing a career in motorsports journalism immediately after attending college at Kent State University. I have hosted multiple Motorsports talk shows, worked in Country Music radio, and now i spend every day on the air in the morning with 1300 and 100.9 WMVO and in the afternoons watching the roadways around Central Ohio for 93.7 WQIO.

The excitement and the fans make everything I put out there worth while, it's been an exciting 15 years having covered everything from the Daytona 500 to the Rolex 24 and you can find me at pretty much any event run at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

What I like to bring is a look behind the scenes, a look at what and who makes the sport grow. From the guy that welds pieces back at the shop to the host in the tv booth.

Everyone has a story and I like to tell it. My main focus here at TPF is looking at the men and women behind the microphone and cameras.

My life long goal is to become a member of MRN or PRN Radio and bring the races to you. I hope that what I share now is enjoyable and gives you a unique look in to the world of motorsports.

See you at a track soon
