Nick Longhi will start Friday’s Sebring 200 from the seventh row after posting a fast lap time of 2:17.212-seconds at Sebring International Raceway in Thursday’s qualifying session. The race, which marks the second round of the 2014 IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar (CTSC) Championship.
Longhi will open the 2.5-hour race from behind the wheel before turning the controls on the No. 13 Rum Bum Racing Porsche over to Matt Plumb to take to the finish.
“We fought through a few issues this week, and are just not where we need to be yet,” said Longhi. “It is a bit frustrating not to have the speed that this team is capable of. But we’ve used strategy to win races before and hopefully we can do that again. Tomorrow’s race will surely be a bit chaotic, as Sebring is a very tough track and no one knows what to expect. But what I expect, what what we’ve seen before, is that this team will just keep focused and work our way forward tomorrow.”
