Jordan Taylor is 22 years old, drives the No. 10 Velocity Worldwide Corvette Daytona Prototype (Wayne Taylor Racing, GRAND-AM Rolex Series) and a factory Corvette C6.R (American Le Mans Series) in sports car racing, and is going to Le Mans next month to race in the legendary 24-hour spectacle for the second time.
Life is good for young Mr. Taylor. This music video makes life even better.
As the two sports car championships work toward the merged United Sports Car Racing series for 2014, drivers have to think outside the box in terms of self-promotion and creating awareness beyond just their driving ability.
To help do just that, Taylor, his older brother Ricky, Pro Mazda driver Spencer Pigot and Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge driver Mark Jensen put together a music video seemingly out of nowhere based on “Good Vibrations” around the Rolex 24 at Daytona.
At the GRAND-AM weekend in Atlanta, the band got back together, and added another CTSCC race winner in Ryan Eversley, to put together an encore, based on “Intergalactic.” The new video that premiered Wednesday night is at the top of this post, with the “Good Vibrations” video below.
