Racing the No. 98 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport, Dempsey will be mentored by former Porsche works, Wright Motorsports driver, and co-driver Patrick Long. Dempsey-Wright Motorsports will proudly partner with longtime Porsche partner Mobil 1, paying homage to a 24 Hours of Le Mans-winning GT1 car adorned with the branding of the motor oil company.

Dempsey’s interest in racing dates back to his childhood. The actor began actively pursuing his dream of becoming a professional race car driver with amateur racing and gradually progressed to higher levels of competition. Dempsey's racing career saw considerable success, achieving podium finishes at prestigious events like the 24 Hours of Le Mans (2015), the 24 Hours At Daytona (2011, 2015), and Petit Le Mans (2013, 2014). He eventually reached the dream driving alongside Patrick Long and for longtime Porsche team Wright Motorsports. He and Long raced together under various banners from 2013 to 2015, and celebrated a win in the FIA World Endurance Championship’s Six Hours of Fuji in 2015.
