MONTREAL, CANADA – With one victory at Daytona, and then two potential podium results affected by mechanical failures, the team will look to rebound in a strong way as they head into the run of summer races. Spinal Surgeon and up-and-coming racer Dr. Will Tally re-joins the team after having spent most of time since January competing in the Porsche Sprint Challenge North America, racking up some impressive results including a win at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX!

“Although we’ve had some mechanical gremlins and tire issues with Sprint Challenge as well. We’ve had some success and excellent lap time development. I’ve grown as a driver and racer significantly in that arena. I’m hopeful that adding yet another platform to my driver knowledge will enable me to feel and understand what our Audi wants in each corner even more and I can translate that into a repeat solid qualifying and first stint.” said Dr. Tally, who after being treated with the Centinel Spine prodisc®️ C Anterior Cervical Total Disc Replacement over a decade ago, has continued to thrive on the race track, run a successful spine surgery practice and lead an active family life.

Having scored his first ever IMSA pole position at the previous round, and continually getting more comfortable with the Audi RS 3 LMS TCR platform, Chris Miller will return to the Watkins Glen International circuit with fond memories of his success in the premier IMSA Weathertech Championship Class when he scored the overall victory of the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen back in 2018. Enthusiastic about the event ahead Miller said “Watkins Glen is such a great track and a place where both the team and I have enjoyed a lot of success. I love the high-speed nature and think it will suit our Audi well. I’m also looking forward to Will re-joining us and I’m hoping he can bring us back the good luck that we enjoyed at Daytona. I know the team has been working hard and I’m confident the Unitronic JDC-Miller Motorsports car is going to be fast and ready to go!”
