New Nissan Racing Team!!

So it looks like the Continntal Tire series will have a number of Nissans in it this year.

2011 saw the return of Nissan with the entry of one and then by the end of the year, two 370Zs fielded by A.M. Performance.  While not on the entry list yet for the 2/4 Grand-Am 200, A.M. Performance does list their next event as being this opening round of the 2012 Continental Tire season.

In addition to this team it appears there will be a new Nissan effort as well.

What had been a Honda based team in the recent past has seen its name change from CA Sport Racing now to Skullcandy Team Nissan.  Evidently getting sponsorship from the publicly traded Skullcandy maker of headphones and more, the team has evidently received two Altima coupes and is taking them (or at least one of them) racing.  Already on the entry list for the Grand-Am 200 it will be interesting what they might be able to do with this platform.  Certainly its not the sportiest rigs around but the livery sure looks cool.  Can't wait to see it and follow along.
