Marshall Pruett has been a very busy journalist this week. With rumor that Walker Racing would be running an Audi R8 customer car in 2016, Marshall checked with Derrick Walker – the guy who ought to know. Walker confirmed that he’s still working on 2016, but doesn’t have an Audi deal in place. In fact, he confirmed that he doesn’t currently have anything in place. Time is growing short. Thanks to Marshall for running the rumor to ground. We still hope to see Walker on a grid somewhere in 2016. Primary sponsor Falken announced early in 2015 that it would not be returning for 2016, after a long and successful partnership with Walker.
