Hunter-Reay and Rahal thus complete MSR’s lineup for the 2017 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season opener.

Fulltime IMSA NSX pilots next year are Andy Lally, Katherine Legge, Ozz Negri and Jeff Segal, while Tom Dyer and Mark Wilkins will be the squad’s endurance drivers.

Art St. Cyr, president of Honda Performance Development (HPD) which is the racing arm for Acura in North America said: “We’re thrilled to have Graham and Ryan join the Michael Shank Racing effort at Daytona. 

“The debut of the NSX GT3 at the prestigious Rolex 24 will mark the return of the Acura brand to IMSA sports car competition. The addition of Graham and Ryan to an already excellent driver lineup, coupled with the experience provided by Michael Shank and his team, will make the NSX GT3 a serious contender for the GT Daytona class victory at Daytona.”

Hunter-Reay and Rahal will join Lally, Legge, Negri and Segal for the two-day open test next week at Daytona International Speedway, while all eight drivers will take part in the January 6-8 “Roar Before the 24”, the final open test prior to the January 28-29 race.
