Michael Crawford Motorsports is pleased to announce participation in the 2012 Global RallyCross Championship series. “We have watched the series from a distance, and feel that this is the right time to engage our resources”, stated Crawford.

Former MCM driver and associate P.J. Abbott will be driving a limited 2012 schedule, and focus on team operations. “P.J. has been part of the team for years, and has participated in qualifying and identifying talent for MCM and the Indy Lights series. He has a solid business background, and understands the important relationships with our sponsors”, says Crawford.

Michael Crawford Motorsports has partnered with JRD motorsports, as a part of the Panoz automotive & racing development group, and Ingvar Gunnarrson Motorsports AB of Öxnevalla, Sweden, chassis builder, as part of a technical and support alliance. “Our goal was to find the best partners, allowing our team the best opportunity for success. We believe we have created a solid platform,” stated Abbott.

MCM recently announced the signing of Norwegian driver and 2011 European RallyCross Championship contender, Frode Holte, to drive the team’s primary car in the 2012 Global RallyCross Championship. The former INDY lights program, in partnership with Frode Holte Motorsports, will campaign the Volvo C30 platform.

As a former United States Marine Corps Officer, Abbott is heading up the team’s 2012 “Tribute to Heroes” campaign. The program allows individuals to submit pictures of their special Heroes; military, civil servant, first responder and more. “This is an amazing display of appreciation for any person’s special Hero” states Abbott, “and the car will look great with all the Hero’s pictures embedded in the scheme of the car.” The team has partnered with Emmy winning Matthew JC and the AllStars for music, production support, and event activation.
