SEBRING, Fla. – DXDT Racing added two more podium finishes to the 2021 results tally this weekend at Sebring International Raceway. Racing in both the Fanatec GT World Challenge powered by aws and the TC America powered by Skip Barber Racing School, the team celebrated two second-place finishes with drivers Erin Vogel and Michael Cooper in the No. 19 Mercedes AMG GT3 R, and Kevin Boehm in the No. 9 Honda Civic Type R.
The team will close out the year at the season finale at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, with five cars running in the GT World Challenge America, GT America, and TC America series. The event will take place October 15-17, and will be open to spectators.
Kevin Boehm’s performance of steady progression throughout the year continued at Sebring International Raceway, starting with him earning pole position in race one for TC America. He ran up front for the majority of race one until a competitor with a more advantageous setup managed to charge through the field from the rear to the front and take the win. In race two, Boehm started from fourth place, and climbed through the pack to race in first, but his race ended early after a damper broke, resulting in his first incomplete race of the season.

Sebring was an up and down event for me. It started off strong in qualifying with pole position. I led a bunch of laps in race one and eventually fell to the second position, where we finished. I’m really happy with that result, especially since we have struggled in hot races in the past. Race two started off strong as well from fourth. We were leading by the end of the first lap and stayed there for a while, but got passed by a couple of cars. We were racey and had a good chance of moving forward at the end of the race. But we had a mechanical problem on the car and were unable to finish. We’re working on fixing that now and we’ll be ready for Indianapolis.
