Premier Racing celebrated its own Mardi Gras at NOLA Motorsports Park this weekend taking home all the beads in the SRO Pirelli GT4 America Pro/Am class. The Las Vegas, Nevada-based race team swept both class pole positions – each worth second-place on the overall starting grid – and class wins – also good for second-place overall – in the pair of 60-minute races at the Avondale, Louisiana race track. The two victories, held May 21 and 21, for the Kent Moore-led team with drivers Adam Adelson (Las Vegas, Nevada) and Elliott Skeer (San Diego, California) mark the first wins for the program in the SRO series and with the No. 120 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport.

“I can’t begin to express how incredibly proud I am to be a part of this team. Through thick and thin, we’ve always kept pushing, and it finally came together for us. As a team, we keep progressing every weekend, every day, every session. As a driver, I really feel like I’m getting to where I need to be. I want to thank the entire team for performing damn near flawlessly this entire weekend. Kent for being an amazing co-owner, Elliott for being the amazing co-driver that he is and all of my friends, family and fans for the amazing support. Now that NOLA is in the books, we’ve got all eyes on VIR!”

“Luckily, the feeling of a race win is familiar to me, but these two wins feel different in a better way. So much effort and growth over the past two years from Adam, Premier and myself have led to this point. I cannot be more proud and grateful for the effort they have all given. It feels good to play my role in this result. Cannot wait to have this feeling again sometime soon.”

“We don’t believe anything is owed to us. We work for everything we get and trust me, we worked for these two wins. I won’t lie, it was a relief to get the win on Sunday so no one could say we backed into Saturday’s win. We have been building to this as a team. Every member of this team can celebrate these wins because everyone put in the hours and effort. I am so proud to be a part of this group we have assembled here at Premier Racing. This has been a team effort from the start. We are just getting started.”

“This was a weekend of firsts for us at Premier. Not just on the track, not just here. We had a birthday, an anniversary, a graduation… we even had the son of one of our teammates walk for the first time. It was a weekend of firsts. A big weekend of celebration. We are going to enjoy this, remember it and keep working for the next one.”
