MADISON, WI 1/17/24 – Kellymoss, a renowned name in the world of motorsports, is thrilled to announce powerhouse partnerships to contend for the 2024 Michelin Pilot Challenge championship. The team, headquartered in Madison, WI, will once again pair with Riley Motorsports, based in Mooresville, NC, to combine their endurance racing excellence with the dominating Porsche expertise of the Kellymoss brand. Adding to this powerful partnership, the combined talents of two celebrated Kellymoss champions, Michael McCarthy, the inaugural Porsche Sprint Challenge champion, and Riley Dickinson, the reigning 2023 Porsche Carrera Cup North America champion, make for a formidable collaboration that promises to electrify fans and competitors alike.
Michael McCarthy's rise in the motorsport world began with a resounding victory in the inaugural Porsche Sprint Challenge, where his driving skills and determination propelled him to the championship title. As a testament to his talent and potential, McCarthy will now step up from Porsche Carrera Cup to the Michelin Pilot Challenge, marking an exciting new chapter in his racing career.
Riley Dickinson, on the other hand, has consistently demonstrated his prowess on the track. His stellar performance in the 2023 Porsche Carrera Cup North America left no doubt about his capabilities, as he secured the championship in impressive fashion. Now, he is set to bring his skills and championship-winning spirit to the Michelin Pilot Challenge with Kellymoss.
And, for the upcoming Daytona endurance race, Brady Golan, Austin, TX, will join this collaboration of champions. Brady is a young driver who recently completed his first full season of USF Juniors and has dipped his toes into the Michelin Pilot Challenge in 2023. “I’m very excited to be competing in Daytona for the first round of the Michelin Pilot Challenge championship,” shared Brady. “Kellymoss and Riley Motorsports have always been top teams and together they’ve been even more successful. I’m honored to be driving with them this race.”
The trio will be joining forces behind the wheel of a Porsche GT4.
"We are ecstatic to have Michael McCarthy and Riley Dickinson join forces for the 2024 Michelin Pilot Challenge season," said Andy Kilcoyne, co-owner of Kellymoss. "Both of these drivers have proven their mettle on the track, and we have every confidence that their combined talents will be a force to be reckoned with. This partnership underscores our commitment to fostering young talent and achieving excellence in motorsports."
McCarthy and Dickinson share the same enthusiasm about their new venture with Kellymoss. "I am thrilled to be part of such a dynamic team and cannot wait to take on the challenges of the Michelin Pilot Challenge," remarked Michael McCarthy. Riley Dickinson added, "“I’m super excited to be back with Kellymoss for 2024 and to be paired up with Michael for our full season effort in Michelin Pilot. We’ve already built a great relationship, being teammates in the Porsche Carrera Cup North America. So I’m quite confident that we will hit the ground running in a few days time at Daytona. I’m very much looking forward to the new challenge ahead of us this year!”
