After a P6 finish at Lime Rock Park just two weeks ago, the Unitronic JDC-Miller MotorSports team heads to Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, a track that sits just 339 miles away from the JDC-Miller headquarters in Savage, Minnesota. Sitting third in the championship, just over 100 points back of the leading effort from Hyundai, drivers Chris Miller and Mikey Taylor will look to use any home field advantage they can to put the #17 entry on the top step of the podium.
“After a great summer stretch of results we didn’t quite get the finish we were hoping for in the last race at Lime Rock Park. Looking to rebound and regain our momentum, I’m not sure there could be a better track to head to than Road America. It’s really the home track of the JDC team and also for me, being only a five hour drive from where I live in Minneapolis. It’s also a track that I love and the high-speed nature of the track should suit our #17 Unitronic Audi TCR. I know we will have lots of family and friends there to support us so hopefully we can give them a win to celebrate on Sunday.” said the Minnesota native, Miller.
The team will also be joined this weekend by Unitronic Authorized Dealer BMP Tuning. BMP Tuning has grown to be one of the go-to sources in the USA for European performance parts and more, while still maintaining some of the highest customer satisfaction ratings in the industry. They were founded by car enthusiasts and their entire staff has a passion for performance, to say the least.
“It’s always a pleasure to partner together with Unitronic whether on the race track or in business. Unitronic’s lineup of software and hardware is unparalleled and combined with their passion for performance, attention to detail, service, and support makes them an unmatched leader in the V.A.G. tuning space. We’re beyond excited to be a part of this and are looking forward to a killer race weekend!” said Autrey McVicker, CEO of BMP Tuning.
A slightly different schedule this weekend puts the Michelin Pilot Challenge in the prime viewing slot with track action only beginning on Saturday morning with free practice one and two, and qualifying at 5 PM CT. The hard working team will then have plenty of time to prepare the car before Sunday’s race at 2:55 PM CT.
