USCC: Muscle Milk Pickett to field LMP2 ORECA in 2014

Two-time overall American Le Mans Series champion Muscle Milk Pickett Racing has announced a new partnership with ORECA to race in the Prototype (P) category of the new United Sports Car Championship (USCC).

Klaus Graf and Lucas Luhr will share this No. 6 Muscle Milk ORECA/Nissan Prototype, the first entered in USCC competition. The two Germans have already raced to 18 wins in 28 starts together.

Since its debut in 2011, the ORECA 03 chassis also has 18 wins, in LMP2 categories of the World Endurance Championship (WEC) and European Le Mans Series (ELMS).

"This is an exciting time for us at Muscle Milk Pickett Racing," said team owner Greg Pickett.

"After winning the last two P1 Championships in the American Le Mans Series, it was important for us to choose a partner for our new adventure into the TUDOR Championship, that can help us continue, and build on, the success we've known so far."
