Based in Supply, North Carolina, McCumbee McAleer Racing (MMR) was formed in 2014 by one of the most competitive driver pairings in North America with racers Chad McCumbee and Stevan McAleer. Chad McCumbee, whose roots lie in NASCAR and Stevan McAleer, an expert sports car racer, combined to create a multi-car, highly capable, and relentlessly fast team within the Global MX-5 Cup paddock. After earning awards and race wins in only their first year of competition, MMR brought home a championship in just their third year on track in 2017. That year, the team went on to dominate by winning 10 out of 12 races, capturing six poles, and they also earned the Team of the Year award.

Today, MMR continues to serve as one of the top, if not the top, teams in the MX-5 Cup garage and provides a level of professionalism only found at the highest tiers of motorsports. With years of competition, instruction, mechanical, and team owner experience, McCumbee and McAleer know the exact formula for success and utilize this to push MMR to the very top. Having already propelled the careers of Patrick Gallagher, Aurora Straus, and Max Faulkner to success in the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA), McCumbee McAleer Racing will continue to coach and develop all ranges of talent to the ultimate and most prestigious levels of the sport.
