Mercer Motorsports Going for Hat-Trick at NASA 25 Hour
The National Auto Sport Association 25 Hours of Thunderhill is less than three months away, Dec. 3-4. Mercer Motorsports has filed their entry and will be going for their third win in a row.
Mercer Motorsports will field a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car with an all-star line-up of drivers, including American Le Mans Series regular Johannes van Overbeek; Grand-Am Prototype Champion, Jon Fogarty; Porsche Factory Driver and Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona winner Wolf Henzler are joined by Rich Walton, and American Le Mans Series Crew Chief Tommy Sadler.
"Mercer Motorsports has won the event, overall, the last two years in a row," van Overbeek said. "I've won it twice. We're coming back again this year. The event is a great grassroots level race with a low barrier to entry and a fun mix of pros, amateurs, fast and touring cars. I ran my first car race at Thunderhill's grand opening in October of 1993. I've been a part of the track's growth in both length and popularity. It's a great track with many challenges in a beautiful part of California. I always look forward to going to Thunderhill."
The NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill will see a field of over 70 cars going twice around the clock plus an hour over the three-mile, 15-turn track located 90-minutes north of Sacramento.
"The NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill is one of our signature events," Jerry Kunzman, NASA Executive Director, said. "It is a great way to close out the year, running 25 hours in Northern California. We have Mercer Motorsports coming back and going for their third straight win. They have a great line-up of drivers with top endurance racing resumes and are the team to beat again this year. We are also anticipating strong private and factory entries making this truly a great event to close out the racing calendar."
