Wayne Taylor Racing: Chevrolet Sports Car Classic at Detroit Preview - Ricky & Jordan Taylor

With 22 titles won by its major professional sports teams – 11 Stanley Cups by its National Hockey League Red Wings, four pre-Super-Bowl-era National Football League titles by its Lions, four World Series trophies for its Major League Baseball Tigers, and three National Basketball Association titles by its Pistons – Detroit is certainly no stranger to championships.

A year ago this weekend, another championship was born on the downtown streets of Belle Isle Park when Jordan Taylor and Max “The Ax” Angelelli stormed their way to victory from pole to checkered flag en route to the final GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series driver championship.

This weekend, Taylor and his older brother Ricky Taylor look to make it back-to-back wins and championships when they return to the 2.35-mile, 13-turn temporary circuit in their No. 10 Konica Minolta Chevrolet Corvette Dallara Daytona Prototype for Wayne Taylor Racing during Saturday’s Chevrolet Sports Car Classic. It’ll be round five of the 2014 Tudor United SportsCar Championship and part of the annual Verizon IndyCar Series weekend festivities on historic Belle Isle.

Last year, Jordan Taylor qualified for his first Daytona Prototype-class pole and joined Angelelli in leading 45 of 61 race laps around the Belle Isle circuit in scoring the team’s second of five victories in 2013 and made Taylor a perfect two-for-two in Detroit. It came a year after Taylor and Paul Edwards co-drove to the GT-class victory at Belle Isle in the No. 88 Autohaus Motorsports Camaro GT.R

In 2012, Ricky Taylor and Angelelli had an equally dominant No. 10 WTR Corvette DP at Belle Isle. Angelelli handed the car over to Taylor in second place during the race’s opening pit stop, and the young Taylor made short work of passing veteran Scott Pruett for the race lead a short time later. After the team’s final pit stop of the day, Taylor was headed back on track in the race lead when an unfortunate encounter with the concrete barrier exiting pit road brought an unexpected end to their day. Still, Taylor and Angelelli led 13 of the opening 39 laps of the race that day and, as can be expected, that turn of events will only help further motivate the team to successfully defend its 2013 race win on the streets of Belle Isle.

Practice for Saturday’s Chevrolet Sports Car Classic begins at 9:35 a.m. EDT Friday with Prototype-class qualifying set for 5:45 p.m. Saturday’s one-hour, 40-minute race takes the green flag at 12:10 p.m. with delayed television coverage provided by FOX Sports 1 beginning at 1:30 p.m. A live online video stream will be carried by IMSA.com with a prerace show beginning at 11:30 a.m. IMSA.com will also stream qualifying live beginning at 5:25 p.m. Friday. The Motor Racing Network’s live radio broadcast will be available in its entirety on IMSA.com and MRNRadio.com, as well as select radio networks beginning at noon. Live timing and scoring during all on-track sessions is available at IMSA.com and the IMSA smartphone app.
