BAR1 at Circuit of the Americas… It’s Monkey Business!

BAR1 Motorsports arrives at Circuit of Americas for the Lone Star Grand Prix fielding two Prototype Challenge cars in Gas Monkey Energy Drink livery. The No. 20 car will be piloted by Bruno Junquiera and Matt McMurry while Don Yount and John Falb will share the driving duties in the No. 26 car, cosponsored by Southwest Funding and Edvisors.

The WeatherTech SportsCar Championship cornerstones three full days of racing, music and entertainment at the spectacular 3.4-mile Circuit of The Americas located in Austin, Texas.

In 2013, BAR1 Motorsports grabbed their first team win, going flag-to-flag in the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patron inaugural race at Circuit of the Americas.

“We love coming to Austin,” noted team owner, Brian Alder. “It will be especially fun since we’re local to the guys at Gas Monkey. We joke about it being Monkey Business, but the crew all have their race faces on for this event. We’ve won here in the past… we want to win here again. Of course, with the Gas Monkey crew and fans on site, we’re especially motivated to put on a good show.”
