MONTEREY, CA (Wednesday, May 10, 2023) — Winners of the two most recent IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship races, Paul Miller Racing rolls into WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca as GTD championship leaders.
Co-drivers Madison Snow and Bryan Sellers hold a 99-point lead in the standings following wins at the renowned 12 Hours of Sebring and Grand Prix of Long Beach.
Driving aboard their No. 1 Quartz Engine Oil-backed BMW M4 GT3 machine, Snow and Sellers scored a fourth-place finish at Laguna Seca last year. The duo previously scored a podium at Laguna Seca together in 2021—finishing second—while Bryan Sellers scored the win in 2019 alongside co-driver Corey Lewis.
“It’s been an amazing year so far. I can’t overstate how proud I am of this entire team for the results we’ve had,” Paul Miller Racing team owner, Paul Miller, said.
“WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca has been an up-and-down track for us. We’ve won and podiumed there, but we’ve also struggled.
“It’s a difficult race to set the car up for because of the low-grip surface. But hopefully, luck continues to be on our side, and we can roll our start-of-year momentum into a good result in Monterey.”
The Course de Monterey at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca weekend begins Friday, May 12 at 4:05 PM PT. The two-hour, 40-minute race goes green Sunday, May 14, at 12:10 PM PT (3:10 PM ET). The entirety of the event will air on NBC Network television, as well as stream on NBC Peacock for subscribers.
“We return to Laguna once again. We were hoping for a track repave, and I know the track has been working hard on that. Unfortunately, the weather didn’t cooperate with them, and we’re racing on the same surface as last year. This makes Laguna a particularly interesting track for strategy and setup, as there is very little grip right now. It’s definitely a different challenge, but one we are looking forward to.”
“I’m very excited to head to Laguna. It’s a beautiful area. I’m really looking forward to the difficulties Laguna poses. The high tire degradation always brings a lot of strategy differences and fuel savings. Thankfully for us, our team is really strong at strategy races, and hopefully, we can leverage that to get another good result here.”
