Solid Run for JMM at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach
LONG BEACH, CA - Jeffrey Mark Motorsport and #76 pilot Juan Pablo Garcia have been looking forward to the Toyota Long Beach Grand Prix since the start of the season. Residing in the city of San Diego during the season, Garcia was excited to race in front of a "hometown crowd".
Achieving his personal best qualifying position at P8, Garcia was ready to take the road come race day. After a clean 45-lap session, Juan Pablo ended the day at P7.
"It was a great race," Garcia said. "The car was pretty consistent during the race so I am glad we could finally find the balance. During the morning session we were struggling with the balance of the car. The whole Jeffrey Mark Motorsport crew did a great job this weekend and I'm glad we were able to finish the race strong. Special thanks to Jeffrey Mark, Freightliner and all who supported me this weekend."
Firestone Indy Lights will take a little break before getting back on the track in May. The Freedom 100 is set to invade the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Friday May 25th.
