STATESVILLE, N.C. – The 2021 Fanatec GT World Challenge America presented by aws championship draws to a close next week at the hallowed grounds of Indianapolis Motor Speedway, ending the season with the longest race of the year, the Indianapolis 8 Hour. Three Mercedes AMG GT3 cars will represent DXDT Racing in the season finale, expanding from their two-driver lineups to three as the teams prepare for the endurance event. Scott Smithson, Ben Keating, and Thomas Merrill will join the team, completing the lineups on the team’s trio of Mercedes AMG GT3 race cars. CJ Moses will also return to race his Mercedes AMG GT3 in GT America, and Kevin Boehm will close out his TC America season in the No. 9 Honda Civic Type R.
Kevin Boehm and the team behind the No. 9 Honda Civic Type R will be eager to end the season on a high note, following a weekend of highs and lows at Sebring International Raceway last week. Remarkably, Boehm had his first DNF of the season, where the engineer and race car driver have so far earned six podiums and an additional three top-five finishes so far this season. Boehm and DXDT currently stand third in the TC driver and team standings, and still mathematically in the 2021 battle for the championship titles.
Race one will take place Friday afternoon, October 15 at 1:35 PM Eastern, and Saturday, October 16 at 3:20 pm on YouTube.com/GTWorld.

This year has been a big learning experience. TC America has a lot of great racing and great competitors. Plus it has some fantastic tracks like Indianapolis. My main focus is coming away with victory at Indy and let the championship take care of itself. We can send this program into the offseason with some very positive momentum if we can accomplish that.
