When Brumos Racing consolidated to one car for the 2010 season, long-time Brumos associate Bob Johnson created Action Express Racing and formed a technical alliance with Brumos. Johnson leased a Riley Daytona Prototype - a car last raced by Pacific Coast Motorsports a few years ago - and had it paired it with a Lozano Brothers-prepared Cayenne-based Porsche V-8 powerplant. To drive the new No. 9 Porsche Riley, Johnson hired Joao Barbosa (2009 winner for Brumos at Homestead-Miami Speedway) and 2003 Daytona Prototype champion Terry Borcheller. Joined by Ryan Dalziel and Mike Rockenfeller, the team won its first race, the 2010 Rolex 24 At Daytona.
After moving to two cars in 2011 and winning one race (VIR), Action Express made the switch to the new Corvette Daytona Prototype in 2012. The change proved to be a good one with the team winning two races (Detroit & Sahlen’s 6 Hours of the Glen) and completing the year fourth and sixth in the championship standings.
Action Express racing will once again field a two-car effort for the 2013 GRAND-AM season. Christian Fittipaldi and Joao Barbosa will share driving duties in the No. 5 Corvette while Brian and Burt Frisselle will co-drive the No. 9 Corvette.
