Beyer Motorsports will make its debut in the Grand Am Rolex Series this weekend in the Bosch Engineering 250 at Virginia International Raceway.

The team will enter the #19 Beyer Motorsports Ford Crawford into the latest round of the season with teenagers Jared Beyer and Ricky Taylor joining Andy Wallace at the wheel.

It will mark Taylor's second start in the series having raced for his fathers SunTrust Racing team in the season opening Rolex 24 at Daytona, where he took a stint at the head of the field in the car he shared with Wayne Taylor, Max Angelelli and Michael Valiante.

"The whole Crawford team has really welcomed me into the team like family already," he said. "Testing has gone real well and we've already made a number of changes to the car. I'm excited.

"The Daytona Prototype format is a really good format where all of the cars are really close. The jump from the Riley to the Crawford wasn't too bad."

To assist his preparation for his first Rolex Series start, Beyer tested in the Barber Series at Virginia earlier in the week and was sixth quickest.

"When we tested our Daytona Prototype here, we used the North course," he said. "Testing here in the Barber car was a huge help to learn the track, and also helped calm my nerves a little bit. I actually found it a bit easier to run the whole course. The transition section of the North course is very technical."
