Whelden enters Mazda Prototype Lites for 2016

World Speed Motorsports announced today that it will be entering Michael Whelden in the 2016 Mazda Prototype Lites Presented by Cooper Tires Championship. “Michael has won multiple championships with our team,” noted World Speed Principal Telo Stewart. “He’s fast and focused, and we’re glad we were able to get this program together in time for Sebring. We have been wanting to compete in the series for a while now, and this was our first opportunity to do it with the right team members.”

Whelden had this to say, “I am thrilled to be back behind the wheel full time this year. After a lot of hard work this last year I am going to compete in the Mazda Road to 24 in the Mazda Prototype Lites series. My ultimate career goal is to go to Le Mans, and the Mazda Lites series is my first big step in that direction. It’s great to have World Speed Motorsports on board for the campaign, we have accomplished a lot together over the years.  Keep an eye out because it’s gonna be an exciting season!”
