  • Winning is important and I’m so glad to be here. It is a privilege to be part of this group inside the car and also the extended group outside the car. It was really amazing to watch the team work on this problem today, which was getting to the end of the 12 hours without any problems or missing anything strategically, as well figuring out the curveballs this race throws at you. Sebring is such a historic place and to have won our class tonight is amazing.

  • It was fun racing Tom Kimber-Smith (driver of No. 52) and that whole group. They are such a great team and classy competitors. It was definitely an all-day race. We almost had the field down a lap, but unfortunately we were slowed down by an incident on track. Mark [Wilkins] did a great job before I got in the car, holding Tom off for about an hour-and a-half . That was a really tense part of the race from my seat, but I’m sure even more so from Mark’s seat!

    Colin Braun
  • I had to push and dig a little today. There was a lot of pressure and my goal was to stay out front. Tom [Kimber-Smith] was never more than a couple seconds behind and he really kept me working hard. I knew it was going to be a close race. I did whatever I needed to do to keep the car in the position it was in. The CORE autosport guys gave us a fantastic car. Jon did a great job in really adverse weather and Colin did an amazing job to bring it home at the end. It was a nail-biter for a long time and that’s what makes the victory so great. It was just what we needed after a really tough Daytona. Hopefully, this sets the momentum forward for a great rest of the season.
