“We are all very excited to get back at the track and especially to Sebring as it’s been a great place for our team over the years.” adds Bobby Oergel, team principal. “Saying it’s great is kind of a bitter sweet as I personally find this race to be the toughest on the calendar, that makes us all want to add another Sebring to the ‘Win’ column.

With Ben doing the WEC 1000 Miles of Sebring and the IMSA Twelve Hours of Sebring races within 24
hours of each other it’s going to be exciting to see him pushing his abilities to the limits around this place!” Oergel finalizes.
