Preston Brown and Denis Dupont Join BHA

Speedway, IN (Dec. 14, 2023) – Bryan Herta Autosport (BHA) with Curb Agajanian welcomes Preston Brown and Denis DuPont to the team, driving the #76 Hyundai Elantra N TCR in the 2024 IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge.

“We are pleased to welcome Preston and Denis to the team, I am confident they will give us another strong combination on race day and look forward to seeing them integrate within our group,” said BHA Team Owner, Bryan Herta.

Preston Brown became acquainted with the Hyundai Elantra N TCR racecar in late November while participating in a test with BHA at Road Atlanta.

“After two years in IMSA Pilot Challenge, I am thrilled for the opportunity to race with the competitive package BHA offers with the Elantra N TCR. Our recent two-day test at Road Atlanta proved that the car and team have what it takes to propel me forward on the next step in my racing journey,” said Brown.

Belgium’s Denis Dupont is new to BHA but experienced with the Hyundai brand. He raced the Hyundai Veloster N TCR with van der Steur Racing in 2021 and earned several top-five finishes in his rookie season in IMSA.

“Upon arriving in the U.S., it became apparent that BHA and Hyundai set the benchmark in TCR. I am thrilled to be a part of their team,” said Dupont. “This new chapter will feel familiar as I’ll be sharing the car with Preston, with whom I’ve been working for a little while now.”

Coming off their fifth consecutive IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge title in 2023, BHA returns to IMSA competition in January at the Roar Before the Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway. BHA will announce their full driver line-up in early January.
