BENICIA, CA — story via RACER.com — LAT Photographic photo — Weeks after parking its TUDOR United SportsCar Championship P2 program in anticipation of returning to race in 2015, Muscle Milk Pickett Racing has closed its doors after an eight-year run by team owner Greg Pickett, according to renowned sports car expert Marshall Pruett.

The Indianapolis-based outfit let a number of its crew members go – many of whom are running an entry for driver Pippa Mann at the Indy 500 – and now the final members of the team have been given notice that the program will not continue.

Pickett formed the team in 2007, joining the American Le Mans Series as a driver/owner in a Lola P1 prototype, and moved into the P2 class with an ex-Dyson Racing Porsche RS Spyder before returning to P1 with a Lola-Aston Martin and eventually a HPD ARX-03a, which delivered two consecutive titles from 2012-’13 (pictured).

In the absence of his racing team, Pickett will concentrate on the expansion of his Muscle Milk brand.​
