“We are extremely excited to announce the 2023 N2/WERA National Endurance Series by Dunlop,” said N2 Race Series Director Chris Kubricky. “The Endurance Series was built for racers. Every dollar of sponsorship goes back to the teams in the form of purse and bonuses. 2023 season has several great surprises planned and we hope that racers and teams can join us to see how much fun endurance racing really is. I want to thank N2 for the opportunity to be a part of the team and grow the series.
