Michael Carter will compete in 2019 Battery Tender Global Mazda MX-5 Cup presented by BFGoodrich season with Copeland Motorsports
After winning the 2018 Mazda Road to 24 Shootout and a full-season scholarship from Mazda, Michael Carter has selected Copeland Motorsports as his team for the 2019 Battery Tender Global Mazda MX-5 Cup presented by BFGoodrich season.
“I think right from the get-go, Dean and Kevin Copeland and myself we were on the same page and spoke the same language when it comes to racing,” said Carter. “They have been a tremendous help to us, are hardworking guys and want nothing more than for me to succeed this year. Being with Copeland allows for my dad to still be involved in my racing, like he has all along. Having a fast teammate in Bryan Ortiz is going to be extremely valuable as we visit tracks I have never driven before.
“This season, I am going after Rookie of the Year honors. I want to focus on consistent finishes throughout the season and see where that puts me going into the last two weekends, and if I am in contention, I will push for the championship.”
