Jr III Racing Scores 8th at WRL debut at Daytona


Daytona, Fla. (12 June 2023) - Jr III (“Junior-Three”) Racing made its World Racing League (WRL) powered by Hagerty debut at Daytona International Speedway this weekend. The Charlotte-based team scored an eighth place finish in the team's opening race with the Aston Martin Vantage GT4.


The No. 48 Safe N Lock Storage Aston Martin Vantage GT4 was driven by father-son duo Marc and Tyler Sharinn along with IMSA GTD ace Mike Skeen.


Friday saw a full day of testing and qualifying before the 14 hour endurance race on Saturday. The Jr III Racing squad qualified on the fourth row for its first WRL event.


Skeen started the race for the team on Saturday, he was able to drive the Aston Martin up to 2nd after a caution came out within five minutes of the field taking the green flag. The team rotated through drivers before a red flag paused on track action due to lightning in the area at the halfway mark in the race. Jr III Racing remained in the top 10 until a storm halted on track action once again with two hours and thirty minutes remaining of the 14 hour enduro. The race was called early due to the storm, leaving the Jr III Racing team finishing eighth.


“The team had a great time this weekend,” said Billy Glavin, owner of Jr III Racing. “WRL is a competitive field and it was great to be a part of it. This weekend was a learning experience, it was our first time in the series and first time racing with the Aston Martin and I think it was a successful weekend.”


The Jr III Racing squad is back in action June 23-25 for the Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen with its IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship LMP3 program.
