A milestone for the 2014 IMSA Tudor United SportsCar Champions

Denver,NC - As the No. 5 Mustang Sampling Corvette DP from Action a Express Racing crossed the start finish line at Lap 149 it completed its 10,000 consecutive mile of competition.

We couldn't think of a better place to achieve this milestone than historic Sebring Raceway.

The Denver, NC based team went on to complete every lap in the Rolex 24 at Daytona, and thus far have completed every lap in the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.

The entry driven by defending series champions João Barbosa and Christian Fittipaldi, with Sébastien Bourdais for three of the four NAEC Events is the only entry to have completed every lap of competition since the merger of the Grand-AM and American Le Mans Series.

"It's a tremendous accomplishment for our team," said team owner Bob Johnson. "We couldn't think of a better place to achieve this milestone than historic Sebring Raceway. Before this was one of the greatest racetracks in America, it served our country training the airborne heroes of World War II.

"Now that we've accomplished the mileage milestone, we've got another milestone we would like to accomplish at 10:40 PM tonight with one of our two entries."
