STATESVILLE, N.C. - Only a handful of races remain in the 2021 season, and DXDT Racing is equipped and ready for the final push in their respective championships in SRO America. This weekend, the Mercedes AMG customer racing team will field two entries in the GT World Challenge America and one in the TC America series at Watkins Glen International. This event marks the first time SRO America has competed at the event since the COVID-19 pandemic began, having last raced at the circuit in 2019.
Located in the Finger Lake region of upstate New York, Watkins Glen International offers 3.40 miles of sweeping turns and a long back straight, producing plenty of areas for tight battles amongst the sports car racing competitors.
Load-in for the transporters will begin Thursday morning, followed by two practice sessions for each series on Friday before back-to-back race days.
With six top-five finishes in eight races, 2020 TCA champion Kevin Boehm has hit his stride this season as he has advanced to the TC class in TC America. The driver, who also engineers his own car, has celebrated two victories this season, earning an additional podium. His strong performance this weekend puts him second in the TC America championship standings.
Race one will air live on Saturday, September 18 at 4:45 pm Eastern on Youtube.com/GTWorld, followed by race two on Sunday, September 19 at 9:00 am Eastern.

Watkins Glen is where my dream to race in TC America started to take shape in 2019 so it's going to be a special event for me. I've had a lot of success here in SCCA competition in the past, so I have high hopes for the weekend. I'm long overdue for a visit to the podium.
