57 minutes remain in 4-Hour IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge
Season Opener
#33 Ryan Norman Pitted From: 1st “Awesome experience out there. The Veloster N is so much fun to drive. It was my first IMSA race, first time doing pitstops, first time driving that long and I am a bit tired but really pumped to have led my first IMSA race!”
#98 Mason Filippi Pitted From: 2nd “My Veloster N was on rails! We had some great racing with the Audis, with my teammate. I’m so happy turn it over to Michael in the top three. That was a blast!”
#21 Harry Gottsacker Pitted From: 3rd “Great racing out there. I had so much fun…the Bus Stop will be the place to watch…the track is taking a beating in that area and conditions are changing. My guys did a great job in the pits and my goal was to bring Mark a healthy car…he’s in it for the finish now!”
