Braselton, Ga. (3 October 2015) – Michael Shank Racing with Curb/Agajanian has never wavered from its ‘never give up’ mentality, and the team’s perseverance was on full display through the Petit Le Mans event weekend at Road Atlanta as the IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship staged its last race of the 2015 Championship.
The final result of the race does not reflect the effort of the team over what was a very trying weekend that saw an extraordinary amount of rain at the track, but an even bigger amount of work that came from the squad with the never give up mantra.
The team returned to a three-driver line up for the 10-hour endurance race with 17-year-old Matt McMurry joining full season Michael Shank Racing drivers Ozz Negri and John Pew.
The weekend started out strongly for the Ohio-based team with Negri leading the first practice session. As the group worked to fine tune the No. 60 Honda-powered Ligier JS P2 through three practice sessions on Thursday, Michael Shank Racing soon faced a big hurdle after heavy rains during night practice saw the No. 60 machine aquaplane, hit the front straight wall, and sustain significant damage.
