Antonio Garcia and Jordan Taylor led a 1-2 finish for Corvette Racing in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship following a chaotic finish at Road America on Sunday.

It is the first victory for both drivers of the No. 3 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Chevrolet Corvette C8.R in IMSA competition at Road America, and they extended their lead in the GT Le Mans (GTLM) Drivers Championship.

JORDAN TAYLOR, NO. 3 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8.R – GTLM RACE-WINNER: “I was happy I wasn’t in the car at the end! It looked pretty miserable, especially on that lap before it went yellow. It looked like at the Kink that it had started pouring again. I don’t know if the BMW and Porsche got that message, and our guys relayed that to Antonio and thankfully he was able to tip-toe through there and make it through for the win. It’s proof that Corvette Racing never gives up, even when we were down-and-out a bit there in the middle. We never gave up.
“Our race went to a three-stop race strategy pretty early on. The way we were track-position wise, we saw the rain before the other guys and were able to duck in the pits before it went yellow for the first time. It was a great call and Antonio did a great job to survive the conditions and bring home another 1-2 finish for the Corvette C8.R.”

ANTONIO GARCIA, NO. 3 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8.R – GTLM RACE-WINNER: “Finally! It took me forever to win here. How wild was that? I don’t know how I got through the Kink there. From the Carousel, (Nick) Tandy and I were navigating and we had to go around the GTD cars… their leaders probably. I was risking a lot and obviously Nick was risking a lot too, as I saw later on. I don’t know how I made it through and I saw the 24 spinning too. It was just amazing. Obviously the Corvette C8.R navigates as well, too! We will take it. Another Corvette 1-2 today is just awesome!”
