No. 99 Finishes to 4th in 2018 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship!

*The No. 99 GAINSCO Auto Insurance “Red Dragon”/ORECA secured fourth in the 2018 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship

* Misha Goikhberg secures the Truemen Aikin award for the second consecutive year.

 

Stephen Simpson: “It was obviously a tough race for us, but I wanted to make sure the GAINSCO Auto Insurance car finished strong.  We have a never-die attitude here at JDC-Miller MotorSports.  I wanted to keep on pushing all the way to the checkered flag and you know one day I feel that we’ll be at this racetrack and I’ll see the fireworks from the front straight…not the back.  I’m proud of the entire team and the Red Dragon was put through its course today, but I really looking forward to a very competitive season in 2019.”

 

 

Misha Goikhberg: “The race for us was difficult.  Unfortunately we all made small mistakes that cost us in the end and unfortunately there weren’t any yellows to help us out of it so we ended up finishing 10th.  More importantly we finished the season in 4th in front of big teams, factory teams like Joest, Penske, Nissan and others.  We finished fourth last year as well, but the competition was much, much tougher this year.  I can’t wait to see what we can do with the Cadillacs next year.  It’s an honor to win the Trueman Aikin award again and I hope next year we can find the finances to compete with JDC-Miller MotorSports at LeMans.
