SEBRING, FL (19 March, 2021) – Coming off taking a third-consecutive victory in the Rolex 24 At Daytona with a factory team, Justice Brothers will be looking to build on its impressive sports car racing legacy in Saturday’s 69th running of the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.
The iconic Justice Brothers logo will adorn the No. 10 Wayne Taylor Racing Acura ARX-05 DPi that will start on the front row for Saturday’s race after Ricky Taylor qualified second. Taylor will be joined by fellow Rolex 24 winners Filipe Albuquerque and Alexander Rossi for Saturday’s 12 Hour. This is the ninth year Justice Brothers has sponsored Wayne Taylor’s Konica Minolta operation, which will look for a return to victory lane having won the 2017 edition of the 12 Hour.
“I’m really happy with our No. 10 Konica Minolta Acura ARX-05,” said Taylor. “Everybody has been on form this week and have been doing a fantastic job after Daytona. Alex and Filipe are super strong, so I think we have got a really good shot during the long race. I’m really looking forward to tomorrow when it starts to cool down at night so we can really put the pressure on the #31 and those Cadillacs. Looking for a good race.“
The California-based manufacturer of automotive products also sponsors the No. 60 Meyer Shank Racing with Curb-Agajanian Acura ARX-05 DPi, which starts fifth, and the sixth-starting No. 5 JDC Miller Motorsports Cadillac.
The LMP3 pole-winning Performance Tech Motorsports No. 38 Ligier JS P320 of Rasmus Lindh, Dan Goldburg and Mateo Llarena is also sponsored by Justice Brothers, which is with the Florida-based team for the fifth year. The squad will open the race with an ideal view, with Lindh having secured pole in Friday’s qualifying.
“That was a mega lap by Rasmus and a great effort by the whole team,” Performance Tech Team Principal Brent O’Neill said. “Sebring is our home track and one we feel confident at, but it takes a lot to put together a lap like that. It puts us exactly where we need to be tomorrow to push for our third win. Now we just have to go out, keep our noses clean and be out there at the end.”
“That was a lot of fun out there,” Lindh said. “After our great run in the No. 6 last weekend I knew we could lay a fast lap down. Performance Tech has won this race many times which is very important knowledge to have in an endurance race. I’m confident in our car and drivers to do well tomorrow. Thank you again to Performance Tech for this opportunity, I’m really looking forward to the race.”
The roster of competitive entries reflects the continued support of Justice Brothers, which has a remarkable history in the sport that goes back more than 75 years and has been central to the brand.
From a breakthrough Indianapolis 500 victory in 1950 with Johnnie Parsons to Johnny Mantz’s win in NASCAR’s first 500-mile race, the Southern 500 at Darlington Justice Brothers has been part of racing history that continues to this day.
Brothers Zeke, Ed and Gus Justice founded the Justice Brothers Race Car Repair and Fabrication shop in California in 1946. Two years later, they relocated to Jacksonville, Florida. The family returned to California in 1956, and began developing its own brand of quality automotive products 10 years later. Justice Brothers has been under the current leadership of President and CEO Ed Justice, Jr. for over 30 years.
The Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring will go green at 10:10am ET with live broadcast coverage beginning on NBCSN.
