A veteran of the United States Marines, Mike Hall is a seasoned motorsports team development leader with more than 15 years of experience in the racing industry as a team manager and executive. He is the founder of American Wheelman, one of the few independently black-owned racing teams in motorsports and the only black-owned team in the history of the International Motorsports Sports Association (IMSA). Hall credits his love affair with fast cars and racing to a 1961 MGA Deluxe car, owned by his father as a kid. Plus, a chance meeting and subsequent mentorship with Oscar-winning actor and racing enthusiast Paul Newman cemented Hall’s career choice in motorsports. With a track record of working with the best in motorsports, under Hall, American Wheelman is sure to be a frontrunner on the track with its race car – a Porsche GT4, called “The Hard Way”.
