Elkhart Lake, Wis. (9 August 2015) – For the second race running, a valiant team effort came to the fore for Michael Shank Racing with Curb/Agajanian in IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship competition as the group rebounded from an early setback to score another top-five finish on Sunday.
That teamwork from Michael Shank Racing culminated in a fourth place finish at Road America on Sunday after the team performed a massive repair to the No. 60 U.S. AutoForce Ligier JS P2 powered by Honda before the race after an issue with the fuel cell was discovered just prior to the morning warm up.
A repair to the fuel cell that would have taken an entire day to fix back at the shop, was completed in just a matter of hours ahead of the race with every Michael Shank Racing crew member working relentlessly in order to have the car back in prime form for the drop of the green flag.
The car was just four minutes short of making it to the grid in time for the recon lap, which per IMSA rules, required the No. 60 machine to not only start from pit lane at the tail end of the field, but also serve a drive-through penalty once the race went green.
