MMR Racing team owner Mike McManman, has created a team with the right components, including the best and very latest in equipment with Howe Racing Chassis and Katech Engines. “I’m personally excited about this partnership with Alan Davison and Dylan Archer because we were able to put together a group of arguably some of the best, most accomplished talent in the Trans Am paddock today.

A lot of people really want to see great things happen with Dylan and the MMR team is very proud to be part of all that enthusiasm!” Additionally, a key contributor of that talent comes from MMR Racing Crew Chief Jimmy Fraser, who not only brings his 30+ years and 4 championships to the team, but a wealth of knowledge with a team totaling over 60+ years of Trans Am experience.

I’m very excited to be a part of the MMR/FPEC Racing Group and work with this very experienced team to showcase our skills. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Alan Davison and FPEC for the last 2 years and it’s been a fantastic relationship that began with us as competitors and has grown all the way to winning endurance races together,” says Archer.
