When Rocksteady Racing takes to the Texas World Speedway road course this weekend in Round 5 of the World Racing League season, it will do so with the services of four experienced drivers hungry for a podium finish.
Team owner Todd Carver and Rallycross pilot Jim Rowland constitute the foundation of the team. Carver is expected to run the first and final stints in the two-day, 16-hour endurance race that comprises the final event ever held at Texas World Speedway. Carver hails from Oklahoma and specializes in endurance events and the SCCA Super Touring Lite class. Rowland, an Arkansas native, has added four endurance racing events to a resume that already included high performance touring, autocross and rallycross.
Brian Beasley of Florida makes his debut with the team in Texas this weekend. Beasley has 25 years of cockpit experience including seven divisions of SCCA competition in both open wheel formula machines and sports cars.
Stephen Cox of Indianapolis rounds out the four-man rotation. A veteran of the ARCA Truck Series, Hooters Pro Cup Series and SCCA road racing, Cox joins the team with support from Boschett Timepieces, McGunegill Engine Performance and Impact Racing. He has posted 11 wins and two championships on road courses throughout his career, and returns to road course racing this weekend after spending the last three seasons primarily on ovals.
The driver rotation is yet to be determined, but drivers are expected to handle the team's race prepped MX-5 in two hours stints. More than one hundred entries are expected to participate in the World Racing League's five classes of competition.
