INDIANAPOLIS — Kaylee Bryson will be stepping up her game next season, competing for a pair of national championships.
Bryson will continue to pilot the No. 26 AP Driver Development / Logical Systems / SamPierceChevy.com USAC Silver Crown machine for Sam Pierce Racing as the reigning series rookie of the year.
Bryson has also been named by LSI Racing as the primary driver for the Logical Systems / AP Driver Development / SamPierceChevy.com fleet of Chevrolet Corvettes in the Trans-Am series SGT class.
“I am just so happy to be able to drive my two favorite types of race cars for the entire season and race for two championships. Of the 10 different types of cars that I raced in 2023, the Champ Car and Trans-Am racing were definitely my favorites. A full season in Trans-Am will allow me to develop the road racing skillset I will need to move up [to IndyCar or NASCAR]”, Bryson said.
“I have a lot of confidence in chasing the Silver Crown championship as I have realized how important qualifying is without heat races in this series, and I have now raced on almost every track at least once and ran really well on the pavement.”
Bryson posted six top-10 Silver Crown finishes in 2023 — five of them on the pavement, and finished fifth out of 75 drivers in Silver Crown National Series driver points.
“It’s so amazing to be able to run for two championships at once and have 26 races that don’t conflict. I have to thank Larry Bailey (LSI owner) and Sam and Aaron Pierce for this really cool opportunity. I can’t wait to start testing in January after the Chili Bowl.”
Bryson and LSI Racing will spend considerable time testing during January and February in Florida in preparation for the Trans-Am opener at Sebring Int’l Raceway in late February.
