|Action Express Team History
Action Express Racing burst onto the sports car scene in 2010 winning the prestigious Rolex 24 At Daytona in the new team’s first ever race. The organization was born of opportunity when Brumos Racing consolidated to one Daytona Prototype car for the 2010 season. Action Express team owner and long-time Brumos associate, Bob Johnson, decided to continue the existing team with a leased Riley chassis paired with a Porsche V-8 Cayenne by Lozano Brothers Porting. With a star-studded lineup of Joao Barbosa, Terry Borcheller, Ryan Dalziel and Mike Rockenfeller, the new organization shocked the racing world with the biggest upset victory of 2010 over heavy favorite Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates in the 24-hour endurance race.
In 2011, Action Express again stepped up and took over the remaining Brumos DP team as the Brumos No. 59 moved to the GT class. The Action Express team added the new Action Express No. 5 Porsche/Riley piloted by longtime Brumos teammates, David Donohue and Darren Law running with the No. 9 car with returning drivers, Joao Barbosa and Terry Borcheller. The teams posted a win at VIR and 4 other podium finishes for the season.
For 2012 Action Express Racing is taking things to yet another level. The team will be competing in new Chevrolet Corvette Daytona Prototypes designed by Pratt & Miller. The cars may be brand new but the experienced driver line-up and crews will be up to the task. Darren Law and David Donohue will continue in the new #5 Action Express Corvette DP and Joao Barbosa, Terry Borcheller and JC France will pilot the new #9 Chevrolet Corvette DP. The new Corvette DP’s are powered by the Chevrolet LS V-8, 5.0L engines producing more than 500 horsepower with an EMCO 5 speed gearbox.
