Father, Son Joins BGB Motorsports Group For Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Race at Daytona

Friday, January 12, 2018

For the first time, former sports car world champion David Murry will have the opportunity to partner with his son, Dylan Murry, in the upcoming IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Race at Daytona International Speedway on Friday, January 26, at 1 p.m.

The four-hour race – the BMW Endurance Challenge at Daytona – acts as a lead in to the Rolex 24 at Daytona weekend.

The Murrys will team up with car owner Jim Cox in the #38 BGB Motorsports/David Murry Track Days Porsche Cayman GT4 MR (see photo from the recent “Roar Before the Rolex 24” weekend).

“This is such a great opportunity for Dylan and me to race together,” said David Murry. “We’re so grateful to Jim Cox and John Tecce from BGB Motorsports for making this happen. We’re very excited to get on track at the end of the month.”

David Murry has been a part-time driver in recent years having instead focused on his growing David Murry Track Days operation as well as his son’s driving career. He last drove for BGB Motorsports at Watkins Glen in 2008 and won the race.

Dylan Murry, who will be making his IMSA debut, has been racing since the age of six and has claimed 12 championships (in Pro Class Legends and the Pro-Legends Winter Series at Atlanta Motor Speedway), along with 60 feature career wins. In 2017, he also competed in two NASCAR K&N Pro Series East races, finishing in the top-10 at both Greenville (S.C.) Pickens Speedway and Watkins Glen International.

“I’m so excited to make my IMSA debut,” said Dylan Murry. “It will definitely be an incredible experience. To be able to have my dad as a teammate is just unbelievable. Mr. Cox and Mr. Tecce have been so supportive and I can’t thank them enough.”

Cox, a Nokomis, Florida resident, has a couple of championships to his credit – the 2016 PCA Club Racing National Champion (GT-3 Class) and the 2017 PCA Clubsport Trophy East Champion (Pro Class). Last year marked his first IMSA season having competed at Daytona, Sebring, Virginia International Raceway (VIR) and Road Atlanta with all top-10 finishes except for an 11th at VIR.
