As the season draws to a close with only two races remaining, the Unitronic JDC-Miller MotorSports team target a victory on home soil for Audi at Virginia International Raceway, only 250 miles away from the Audi of America headquarters in Herndon, Virginia. Virginia International Raceway, nicknamed VIR, is also a circuit that has brought the JDC-Miller MotorSports team success in the past with the Audi RS 3 LMS TCR platform, and the team will certainly be referring back to those experiences to get a head start this weekend!

Consistency has been a key factor to the run of top five finishes for #17 TCR duo of Mikey Taylor and Chris Miller and they’ll be looking to up the ante with only two races left in the season. “I feel like we have all the right pieces for success, and probably should have had a lot more wins this season, but in the last few races the chips just haven't fallen our way. We’ve been unhappy with the top five finishes the last few races because we know we should have been on the podium at least. We’ll use that pressure and drive to do everything in our power to win these last two!” said the South African born Mikey Taylor.
