Braselton, Ga. (5 September 2020) – The Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta race marks the second IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup weekend of the season for the No. 57 Heinricher Racing with Meyer Shank Racing squad. Trent Hindman rejoins Misha Goikhberg and Alvaro Parente in the No. 57 Acura NSX GT3 for Saturday’s six-hour TireRack.com Grand Prix (11:35am ET, NBCSN).

After two strong practice sessions earlier in the day, Goikhberg headed into qualifying confident of laying down a fast lap. He set the pace early on in the 15-minute qualifying session, sitting well within the top four. Pushing hard through his final laps, Goikhberg landed sixth for Saturday’s start. 

“We have a good race car but I don’t think we quite got all of it in qualifying,” said Goikhberg. “We made a lot of progress from practice this morning so I’m feeling pretty confident heading into the race. It’s a long race so we need to focus on setting a good pace and keeping it so that we can fight at the end. I know that our Heinricher Racing crew will get us all dialed in and we’ll be ready to go tomorrow morning.”

Live NBCSN coverage of the TireRack.com Grand Prix will kick off at 11:35am ET. IMSA Radio will be featured on SiriusXM Ch. 202.
