Braselton, GA (Thursday, September 29, 2022) – In a qualifying session disrupted by a red flag, Team TGM’s Hugh Plumb recorded the fourth fastest time for tomorrow’s FOX Factory 120 – the final round of the 2022 IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge.

In the very competitive field, Hugh Plumb No. 46 put in a time of 1:26:846 around the team’s 2.54 mile home track at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta earning him a spot on the second row of the grid for tomorrow’s 2-hour race.  

Hugh Plumb and his brother Matt will combine aboard the No.46 in tomorrow’s race.

Earlier in the day today, Owen Trinkler put the No.64 into the top ten in practice aboard the Porsche he will share tomorrow with Ted Giovanis.

Plumb explained, “We got cut short in qualifying and we had just one lap to get it done and fourth was as good as I could do. I think the second row is going to give us a good chance in the race.”

Ted Giovanis, Team TGM’s owner and driver recapped the day saying, “Hugh put his car in a really good position for tomorrow’s race despite the broken session.  Our guys are always well prepared but this weekend we are one guy short but we’ve filled that gap and I think it will be really good. We’re looking forward to a good race.”

Friday’s race will take the green flag at 1:10 pm and be live on-demand on Peacock.

Ted Giovanis

“Owen and I certainly are looking for a podium finish this weekend, as is the No. 46 car. I didn’t qualify with my fastest time which actually bodes well for the race as I know I can do better come race time. I will look toward holding my position in the race and give the car over to Owen and he can finish it off. The car is going to be pretty good for the race, Owen likes it, so I will survive and let Owen do his thing.”

 

Hugh Plumb

“Hats off to all the TGM guys. All this year we have been plugging away at making this Porsche go faster and faster, every moment we can. I’m happy to put it on the second row for them. I know we have a great race car so I’m looking forward to that.
“I think the race will be like qualifying, there will be a lot of yellows and it’s unfortunate that’s happening and for the race you throw in the TCR guys which adds to the expectation. I hope it’s a mostly green race and not full of yellows.”
