Meyer Shank Racing will field the No. 86 Acura NSX GT3 for the rest of the 2018 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship after originally planning to only contest in the Tequila Patron North American Endurance Cup (TPNAEC).

After opening the season with a TPNAEC win at Daytona, scoring a class win at the Detroit Grand Prix for the second year running with a demonstrative 1-2 team finish, and then racing to another TPNAEC round win at Watkins Glen, the No. 86 Acura NSX GT3 currently holds second in the IMSA GTD class championship.

Meyer Shank Racing will now compete with two full season entries for the remainder of the season as the No. 86 Acura NSX GT3 joins the No. 93 Acura NSX GT3 entry at Lime Rock Park, Road America, VIR, Laguna Seca and Road Atlanta.

Mike Shank, who recently concluded an agreement that saw the team take on a new name and co-owner with Jim Meyer, has made the commitment to race all the way to the end of the season. The team has also grown its competition program in 2018 to include a select schedule of Verizon IndyCar events.

The Meyer Shank Racing squad will be competing the next three weekends starting with the IMSA Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock set for July 20–21, followed by the Verizon IndyCar Series Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio on July 27–29, and ending with the next round of IMSA competition heading to Road America on August 3–5.
