BRASELTON, GA (November 11, 2021) – Team TGM pulled off a solid qualifying performance for the final IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge round of 2021, with Hugh Plumb leading the team by qualifying fifth at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta today.

“We’re trying to end the season on a high note, trying to move up the ladder,” said team owner and driver, Ted Giovanis after qualifying.

“Owen was pretty quick in the #64 car yesterday, and I’m just trying to hold up my end of the bargain in qualifying.”

While Giovanis is looking to finish the season with a bang – it didn’t quite turn out as planned today when he was hit by another car en route to recording the 22nd fastest time.

“Toward the end of the session, we went into Turn 6 and got tapped off by another car, between 6 and 7. Once I got going again at the end of the session, I pulled off because I think there was only a lap left. All in all, I think we were satisfied with the qualifying session and looking forward to the race tomorrow.”

Tomorrow’s two-hour race, the Fox 120, will take the green flag at 1:10 p.m. ET, with live coverage available on TrackPass on NBC Sports Gold and IMSA Radio.

“I know Hugh did well, so we’re trying to go on a high note, as I said. For qualifying, I went out and tried to follow Hugh through many of the turns warming up the tires. When the tires were ready to go, Hugh took off, and I tried to do my own thing.”

“Qualifying today, I think went pretty well, P5. We got a little bit behind the eight-ball yesterday, didn’t get a lot of time in the car this morning, and then right into qualifying. We’re right about there getting the performance from the cars. I’m super happy with the team and pretty happy with the car. We’re going to fix that for tomorrow, and I think we’ll have a good race car. As always, I can’t say enough about the team and can’t say enough about the opportunity that Ted and Kristina Giovanis give me.”
