Jordan Wallace is set to become the first African American racer to compete in Porsche Carrera Cup North America when he lines up for Kellymoss in the 2024 championship starting next month.

With backing from Vision Motorsports, Wallace will drive the No. 23 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup in the hotly-contested Pro-am class – hitting the track for the first time at the Carrera Cup pre-season test at Sebring International Raceway on March 4-5.

Wallace made a name for himself in karting first – competing at the highest levels and earning distinction as an elite driving instructor. He successfully transitioned to sportscar racing in 2021 with impressive results – two wins and four podiums – making history as the first African American to win a Porsche Sprint Challenge race – taking a pair of wins at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Following this performance, Wallace completed successful seasons in Europe, racing in both DTM Trophy and the SRO GT4 series. During his time overseas, Wallace continued to collect podiums and points in an ultra-competitive racing environment.

“Not only are we pleased to welcome Jordan to our team because of his promising racing track record, collaborative team spirit, and incredible drive to perform and grow, we are thrilled to lead once again with important first steps in one of our foundational Porsche racing series,” said Victoria Thomas, CFO and co-owner, Kellymoss. 

“At Kellymoss, a critical component of our mission is to generate growth in motorsports. We know that expanding diversity, enhancing accessibility, and creating opportunity for all – drivers, teams, sponsors, and fans – is key to the future of this vibrant and robust industry. Seeing more minority participation in high-level racing series is an important step in the right direction.”

Alongside its pair of Pro-class championship Carrera Cup wins, Kellymoss has also been the Pro-Am champion in the past two seasons, with Alan Metni triumphant in 2022 and Efrin Castro successful last year. 

“It’s a dream come true! I am so grateful to Vision Motorsports, Kellymoss, and my sponsors for enabling me to race in the Porsche Carrera Cup North America,” Wallace said.

“I’m honored by their belief in my dream and talent and their commitment to helping break down barriers to entry, making the sport more accessible for all.”

After the pre-season test, the Porsche Carrera Cup teams will return to Sebring International Raceway for the opening round of the championship from March 13-15.
