The season is winding down and championships are on the line as Wright Motorsports enters the IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge season at Road Atlanta. The weekend is poised to be nothing short of exciting for the Batavia Ohio-based team as Max Root, Charlie Luck, and Anthony Imperato prepare to take one of America’s most classic road courses.

“With a ten-point lead coming into the Atlanta race, I’m approaching this weekend just like every other one that we’ve had. I’m going to run my own race, be consistent and disciplined and take advantage of opportunities”, said Luck.
“Although we’ve had some issues outside of our control, we’ve had a phenomenal year. My year has been a testament to the driver development program that Wright Motorsports has and the caliber of the professionals on the team.”
“I absolutely love Road Atlanta. It’s the only road course that I competed in the Busch NASCAR series in 1996. I ran well then and had my first podium last year in the Gold class. I’m ready.”
Another one to watch is Anthony Imperato, who enters this weekend’s finale running fifth in the Platinum championship. With five podiums on the season Imperato looks to continue his fight to a victory as he returns to Road Atlanta for the first time since 2016.
