PR1/MATHIASEN HUNGRY FOR A WIN AT THE SAHLEN’S SIX HOURS OF THE GLEN

PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports is going into the sixth round of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen with the momentum of their win at Mid-Ohio.

The No. 52 ORECA LMP2 will be driven by Matt McMurry, Gabriel Aubrey, and Eric Lux. The historic six-hour battle will take place on the 3.4-mile Watkins Glen International circuit. Track action begins tomorrow with two hour-long practice sessions at 10:25 a.m. and 3:05 p.m. EDT. There will be one final practice Saturday at 8:00 a.m. with qualifying running from 12:25-12:40 p.m.

Race day will begin with a 20-minutes warm-up on Sunday, June 30th, at 8:00 a.m. Racing will go green at 9:45 a.m. to kick off the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen.

Matt McMurry – Driver

“I’m happy to be going back to the Glen, one of my all-time favorite tracks. With Gabriel joining us again, we will have a very strong lineup that will hopefully let us get back into the points lead.”

Gabriel Aubry – Driver

“I’m really excited to come back to IMSA and United States! I enjoyed my first experiences in this championship at Daytona and Sebring even though our results did not show our full potential. The team is on a high after Mid-Ohio, and we are looking to keep it that way.”

Eric Lux – Driver

“I’m excited to rejoin PR1 Motorsports, Bobby Oergel and teammates, Matt McMurry and Gabriel Aubrey for the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen! While I wish there were more LMP2 entries to race against, I’m confident that class will grow considerably next season. LMP2 offers some of the most exciting racing in endurance racing. Securing back to back LMP2 wins and at this iconic event would be terrific for the team! My best result in the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen was third place in 2009 in the GT category.”
