Indianapolis racing driver Stephen Cox has added NASA Pro Racing’s “Fire on the Prairie” 6-hour endurance race to his summer schedule after reaching an agreement with Tulsa’s RealAutoSport race team earlier this week.
The NASA 6-Hours will be held on Heartland Motorsports Park’s 2.5-mile, 14-turn road course on July 14th. Preparation of RealAutoSport’s Mazda was overseen by team principal and former national rally champion Mike Halley, who first signed Cox to drive in 2003.
“Mike’s cars are always well prepared and it’s always a privilege to race with him,” said Cox, who drives with support from STA-BIL brand Fuel Stabilizer and G-Force Racing Gear. “We ran a six-hour endurance race in Oklahoma several years ago and scored a top ten with a really solid, reliable car. Their equipment is always competitive and they still know how to enjoy the sport. I love sports car racing and I’m grateful to be asked to return.”
In his last ten road racing starts, Cox and his teammates have scored two pole positions, three wins and eight podium finishes. He has finished out of the top five only once since 2014.
This event is added to Cox’s schedule which already includes eight races in the Super Cup Stock Car Series, four additional road races in the United States, and the FIA’s EPCS European sports car schedule that begins in Jerez, Spain on November 3rd.
