“Long Beach is one of the coolest street courses around. I am fortunate to have run in the IMSA event here in 2017; it was my first sportscar race, and I was totally over my head. The two years of experience I have now will help me attack this course head on and go for a good result. Everyone at Juncos Racing has been pushing hard after Sebring to make the No. 50 Cadillac DPi-V.R the best it can be. I can’t wait to get out there!”
