ELKHART LAKE, Wis. – Unfortunately, the third time was not quite a charm for co-drivers Michael Johnson and Stephen Simpson and the JDC-Miller Motorsports team on Saturday at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis. Racing in the Road America 120, the third leg of the reconfigured IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge, Johnson and Simpson finished sixth in a strong TCR class field. The team’s fastest lap was timed at 2:22.376. They finished the race in 2:03:29.302.

“The race at road America was challenging,” said Johnson. “We had so many things happen in the race. It was a tough battle in the beginning but, unfortunately, we lost the lead pack. But Stephen drove exceptionally well in the last hour of the race. It was a good points day and the car came back with no issues. We will keep working and push it at Virginia International Raceway in two weeks!”

The weekend in Wisconsin started strong for the team, as Johnson piloted the No. 54 Universal Coating Audi RS3 LMS TCR car to a second-place result with a qualifying time of 2:21.360.

“The highlight of the weekend was Michael’s strong early effort by qualifying in the front row,” Simpson said. “The race result wasn’t what we were wanting but it wasn’t due to a lack of effort. Our JDC-Miller Motorsports team gave us a strong car but, ultimately, the Hyundai’s were just too strong this weekend. We need to keep our heads down and keep working hard.”

A year ago, Johnson and Simpson found some love in Virginia, earning their second podium finish of the 2019 IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge season, by guiding the No. 54 Universal Coating Audi RS3 LMS TCR car to a third-place result at the Virginia Is For Racing Lovers Grand Prix.
