British Touring Car Independents' champion Andrew Jordan wants to race more in America after topping Daytona testing last weekend.
The 23-year-old will share a Compass360 Racing-run Honda Civic Si with James Colborn in the Grand-Am Challenge at Daytona, which supports the 24 Hours later this month.
Jordan set the Street Tuner class pace over the three-day test with a time of 2m06.642s, putting him ahead of fellow Honda driver Ryan Eversley and BMW's Terry Borcheller.
"We haven't been outside the top three, wet or dry, which is nice," said Jordan.
"It's more standard than the BTCC and it's low-powered so you need to keep up the momentum. Hopefully we'll be able to get a good result and get on the podium."
Jordan is now hoping he can compete in the Laguna Seca and Watkins Glen rounds later in the year as he explores American racing options.
"This is a toe in the water, but I'd like to do more," he added.
"It's good for me career-wise. There are some guys here who are pretty well paid; it's a good thing to take advantage of the chance."
Jordan's main 2013 campaign remains a BTCC title bid with an NGTC Honda Civic run by Eurotech.
