Being based in Minneapolis, MN means you don’t exactly have any close IMSA race events in your home state, and therefore the JDC-Miller MotorSports operation considers the closest event at Road America, WI their home race and one they’ll be looking to impress at!

MONTREAL, CANADA – Heading into the beautiful road course facility of Road America on the fringes of Elkhart Lake, WI, the team duo of Mikey Taylor and Chris Miller will look to repeat the strong showing they had going at Lime Rock Park where they had been in control of the race up until the final 15 minutes when fuel pressure and steering rack issues struck the #17 Audi RS3 LMS TCR. Having consistently been in the sharp end of the TCR field all weekend but only able to come away with a 4th place finish, the team will be looking to redeem themselves for those final 15 minutes with a podium finish at Road America.

“I love Road America and had a nice first experience in a TCR car when I drove the Unitronic #17 Audi in 2019. We were fast all weekend and led early in the weather impacted race. I’m confident we will have good speed there again this weekend, as we have most of the year. The team has been working very hard and I can’t wait to get on track in a few days!” said the Minnesota native.

Co-driver Mikey Taylor echoed those thoughts with “I love coming to Road America and the Elkhart Lake area, we always have a fun time as a team and it’s one of the best tracks on the calendar! I’ll be pushing as hard as ever to put the car up on the podium to reward all of our guys for their hard work! I feel we’re very overdue for a solid result at this point and we won’t settle for anything less this weekend!”
