Nissan and Muscle Milk Pickett Racing have teamed up to compete in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.

Aiming to "return to its glory days of sports car success from the late 80s / early 90s," Nissan will support the team by providing them with drivers as part of the NISMO Global Driver Exchange. As a result, Nissan's Alex Brundle will join Muscle Milk Pickett Racing's Lucas Luhr and Klaus Graf at the Rolex 24 at Daytona.

The drivers will use the Muscle Milk Pickett Racing ORECA 03 which is powered by an undisclosed Nissan engine.

According to Nissan Global Motorsport Director Darren Cox, "We're glad to welcome Muscle Milk Pickett Racing to the Nissan family and look forward to having our official drivers learn from such a successful team." He added, "We are also very proud to have brought Nissan back to the forefront of U.S. sports car racing. Our company has an incredible pedigree dating back to the old IMSA championship and I'm certain Nissan and NISMO will add to that history in the coming years."
