PHOENIX, Ariz., (August 11, 2022) – Sports car racer Sally McNulty has exciting changes ahead for the remainder of the 2022 TC America powered by Skip Barber Racing School championship. Forming a new midseason partnership, Sally McNulty and Skip Barber Racing will join forces for the remainder of the season, beginning with Rounds 9 and 10 of the championship at Road America in Wisconsin, August 19-21. McNulty will pilot the brand-new No. 780 Borla Exhaust Skip Barber 11th Generation Civic Si for the remainder of the 2022 championship. Making this cooperative even more significant, only two turnkey 11th Generation Civic Si Honda Performance Development (HPD) race chassis was created for 2022 and are the beginning of the next generation of HPD racing.
“I am beyond pumped for the opportunity to race the new generation of Civic Si turnkey race car by Honda, as well as work with a championship-winning team,” said McNulty. “I graduated from Skip Barber School with my competition license, and it just feels right to race under their name as well. Looking forward to growing as a driver and competitor with them for the rest of the 2022 season!”
McNulty, a first-generation racer, began her racing career by participating in track day experiences which progressed to participating in local National Auto Sport Association (NASA) events. In 2019, she then advanced to the TC America series, earning multiple top-five finishes.
