Nissan is hoping to return to its glory days of sports car success by joining forces with Muscle Milk Pickett Racing and competing in the 2014 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.

Racers from Nissan’s squad of international drivers will complete along with Muscle Milk Pickett Racing’s Lucas Luhr and Klaus Graf as part of the automaker’s NISMO Global Driver Exchange. Joining the team for the Rolex 24 at Daytona will be Alex Brundle, Nissan P2 World Endurance Championship regular. The NISMO Exchange drivers will also get to compete in the 12 Hours of Sebring and Petit Le Mans.

The Nissan-powered Muscle Milk Pickett Racing ORECA 03 will be testing at the “Roar before the Rolex 24″ pre-season test this weekend. The 2014 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship will kick off on January 25.

“We’re extremely pleased to become one of Nissan’s partner teams and to have them as part of the Muscle Milk Pickett Racing family,” said Greg Pickett, Owner of Muscle Milk Pickett Racing. ”Nissan are proven race winners throughout the world and together we want to build a strong relationship that will help us continue the success that we’ve both come to enjoy. We’re excited to not only have our prototype be powered by Nissan but to also be involved with them at a deeper level.”
