DAYTONA BEACH, Florida – 16 year old driver Kyle Long is excited to race in his first Daytona 24 Hours. “I’m very excited,” said Long, “My one season in MX-5 Cup really prepared me to run in LMP2 this year and I can tell my Dad is equally excited.”

After finishing ninth in the MX-5 Cup Championship in 2020, Long is ready to make the jump into professional racing. “MX-5 Cup is the perfect training ground for an LMP2 ride. I know there’s MPC, IPC, and a bunch of openwheel series that are available, but the difference between MX-5 Cup and LMP2 is not that grand.”
