WILL OWEN- Driver of the No. 50 Juncos Racing Cadillac DPi-V.R
“I’m excited to return to the United States after racing a lot in Europe this past month. I’m looking forward to seeing how the car has progressed and the set-up Juncos Racing has worked on between the last race and now. I did this race last year, so I am familiar with the event and with how it can be very challenging in the heat. This year it will just be Rene Binder and me, which will add a slight challenge, especially if it is going to be hot. It’s nothing we cannot handle, and I feel confident with the advantages that will bring us, such as more practice time.”
