Maverick is a newly formed race team to compete in the Global MX-5 Cup with entries to be piloted by Bryan Hixon and Justin Piscitell starting in 2020 alongside IndyCar race weekends. Bryan Hixon, team owner and philanthropist and team manager, Shea Holbrook partnered to create Maverick with the goal of bringing together talented members of the industry with a vision of creating winning platforms and results both on and off the track. The highly goal-oriented team also has a charisma and spirit to be racing with a purpose. Elevating our drivers, partners and associates is their top priority while paying it forward as the team proudly supports Autism Speaks and the World Wildlife Fund.
