The No. 84 Atlanta Speedwerks Honda Civic TCR will be joined by Friends of Jaclyn Foundation beginning at Sebring
 


Alan Jay Automotive Network 120 is the first opportunity to build on Daytona successes

 



Atlanta Speedwerks drivers Todd Lamb and Brian Henderson head to the Alan Jay Automotive Network 120 this Friday at Sebring International Raceway with the expectation that they will build on the team’s IMSA MICHELIN Pilot Challenge debut in January, where a chance to fight for the win evaporated late in the race with a cut tire.
 


Still, the team left with a fourth-place finish and the drivers sit, naturally, fourth in the point standings after the first of 10 championship rounds.
 


“We were so close to battling for a win that we left Daytona a little bit disappointed with fourth,” Lamb said. “The reality is, it was a great finish for our team. The cars are new, we didn’t have much testing time, and things like pit stops and driver changes were brand new for us as a team. We were able to learn some things about the process and about the Honda Civic TCR that will help us moving forward and had a good point weekend, and we want to build on all of that at Sebring.”
 


Sebring is a track that Lamb knows well, most recently scoring a top-five finish there in the Battery Tender Global MX-5 Cup last November.  Henderson has limited experience at Sebring, but has been there for two pressure-packed race weekends – the Global MX-5 Cup shootout and NASA’s amateur championship weekend.
 


“I really enjoy the track,” Henderson said. “I think the Hondas are going to do very well at Sebring. In my opinion, they are the most well balanced and reliable TCR car. It is so much fun to drive. I learned a lot about the endurance side of the sport at Daytona, and am definitely more focused on pace and consistency headed into Sebring.”
 


In addition to partners Pagid Brakes, Sabelt and Honda Performance Development, the team will be carrying Friends of Jaclyn on the side of the Honda Civic this season. More than that, the team will be helping to raise money to support children and families battling pediatric brain tumors and other childhood cancers. Those wishing to help can participate by going to BrianHendersonRacing.com and clicking the “Racing For A Cause” link.
 


“We are really excited to have Friends of Jaclyn on the car for the rest of the season,” Henderson said. “FOJ is a charity whose mission is to improve the quality of life for children battling pediatric brain tumors and other childhood cancers. We have partnered with FOJ to help raise awareness in the racing community.”
 



The Alan Jay Automotive Network 120 will stream live at IMSA.tv from Sebring on Friday, March 15, with the green flag scheduled for 11:55 a.m. ET. Live timing and scoring for all sessions, including Thursday’s qualifying, can be found at IMSA.com.
