February 5, 2024 – BREAKING: Sam Paley and John Paul Southern Jr. announce their new team and entry into the 2024 IMSA Mustang Challenge, Southern Paley Motorsports.

Currently, Southern Paley Motorsports, or SPM, plans to enter one car in the 2024 Mustang Challenge, but has plans to quickly expand. The Mustang Challenge season kicks off at Mid-Ohio in early June, but SPM will be undergoing an extensive pre-season testing program beforehand.

“This is something that JP and I have been talking about for a couple years, and I could not be more excited to see it coming into fruition. The Mustang Challenge will be one of the most exciting racing series in the United States, and it’s fantastic to see Ford’s commitment to building purpose built race cars. We are looking to grow our Mustang Challenge program in the years to come.” – Sam Paley

“I’m extremely excited to start this new endeavor and happy to be able to provide a great product to future customers. I’m a racer at heart, and I love the sport so much. I believe our hard work in the paddock will pay off. We have big plans for the future with SPM, and I believe we will achieve great things not only this year but in the years to come.” – John Paul Southern Jr.

Furthermore, SPM announces the beginning of a strategic partnership with TKG Motorsports to complete a comprehensive and revolutionary ladder system. TKG Motorsports currently competes in the SCCA Spec MX-5 Series, and Southern Paley Motorsports’ Mustang Challenge program aims to be the next step for drivers in the program.

Southern Paley Motorsports is eager to be a part of the first ever season of the IMSA Mustang Challenge and is looking forward to the commencement of the series this June.
