Sebring, Fla. (21 March 2015) – Michael Shank Racing Racing with Curb/Agajanian had been hoping for a big result in the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring on Saturday as the team debuted the No. 60 Tire Kingdom Honda-powered Ligier JS P2 in the iconic endurance event. Unfortunately, contact early on took the team out of contention for the result they had been targeting.
John Pew, Ozz Negri, and Justin Wilson combined in the fan-favorite bright red No. 60 Tire Kingdom machine and were fast all weekend. And though the big 12-hour race was on Saturday, Michael Shank Racing won a race of its own on Friday when the team rallied to make an engine change in record time in order to qualify the car.
The engine swap was completed in four hours and 20 minutes which saw Negri put the car fourth on the grid for the historic Sebring event. The team worked well into the night on Friday to prepare the car for the race and hopes were high as the sun rose over Sebring International Raceway Saturday morning.
