"Moving forward, I’m confident we’ll rack up more race wins. We’ve made a statement to the series that we’re here to contend for the championship. A huge thank you to Jeremy [Dale] and Harrison [Brix] for the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the #3/JDX Racing/Hertz/Byers Porsche."
"Race #2 was in cold, but dry conditions and my front tires took a little too long to heat up and come in. Once the pressures on the tires finally came up, I was able to match the leaders race pace but it was too little, too late. I’m really looking forward to Montreal in few weeks to take what I learned here and drive a mistake free weekend."
"Mid-Ohio is my home track and a very technical track to drive. I have hundreds of laps around this place and I love coming here and love every minute behind the wheel. Thanks to everyone at JDX Racing who did an amazing job all weekend dealing with the changing conditions and a very happy 60thbirthday to my coach and driving mentor, Mike Zimicki."
JEREMY DALE, MANAGING PARTNER/JDX RACING: "Talk about a wild weekend! Cold temperatures, wind, rain almost every session and cars flying off the racetrack. Our drivers took it all in stride and did a great job facing up to every challenge Mid-Ohio threw at them. Parker winning in his third start in the series sends a serious message to every driver he's competing against. We know as well as anyone how stiff the competition is in GT3 Cup Challenge and we intend to keep ramping up our performances throughout the season and go after another championship."
