CB Motorsports will make its IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge debut in the season’s opener at Daytona, where Caleb Bacon, Mark Kvamme and Trenton Estep will be behind the wheel of the #81 Hyundai Veloster N TCR. Kvamme and Estep are slated as the full-season pairing for the TCR class campaign and the team is looking to add a second car later in the season.



"I am looking forward to the Daytona event," said Kvamme, "While I have driven an assortment of cars, the Hyundai Veloster N TCR is a new and exciting challenge. The TCR class has some of the closest racing in IMSA, and I got a taste of that with a few outings in 2019.



Returning to the TCR field with Caleb and Trenton as my teammates is an exciting opportunity. We have a great chance to fight our way to a podium and open the season on a high note."



Estep, the 2018 IMSA Porsche GT3 Cup champion, will make his TCR debut. "I know my co-driver Mark Kvamme well; we work well together and I’m excited to be alongside him. Mark has become a mentor of mine on and off the track, and our journey in Michelin Pilot Challenge is a new chapter for us both," he said.
