Corey Fergus made a name for himself in Ohio, becoming the first driver under 16 years of age to win the SCCA Ohio Valley Region Governor’s Cup in 2003. He followed that with the Sports 2000 Mid-Ohio Cup Championship in 2005, the 2009 SCCA Ohio Valley Region Most Improved Driver and the 2012 SCCA Ohio Valley Region Driver of the Year.
Fergus continued to climb the sports car racing ladder. After a brief stint in the Continental Tire Challenge, Fergus competed in World Challenge for a couple of seasons, winning the Touring Car Championship in 2015 in his rookie season and placing third in GT Cup in 2016.
He quickly made his way back to IMSA though, competing in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama in 2017, where he finished runner-up in the Platinum Cup standings after scoring three wins.
Now, as he returns to the Continental Tire Challenge, he co-drives the #69 car with Canadian Jesse Lazare.
