Tom Blomqvist (#60 Meyer Shank Racing Acura ARX-06):
Rolex 24 Race Winner, 2nd consecutive Rolex victory for Meyer Shank Racig and third in a row for Acura: “It’s a team effort. What’s amazing here at MSR is that everyone is able to achieve and reach their potential and that’s really important.


What Mike [Shank] and Jim [Meyer] have done to create a good atmosphere within the team, it’s such an open book and I think that allows everyone to work to the best of their abilities. Especially for me, I’m confident because they put a lot of trust and faith in me and I am so grateful for that.



Last year I was on the stand watching at the end and this year I felt a lot better about being in the car because I was in control of our own destiny. The feeling I had when I exited the Le Mans Chicane on the last lap and of course seeing the smiles on everyone’s faces is incredible.”



Ricky Taylor (#10 Wayne Taylor Racing with Andretti Autosport ARX-06) Finished secon
d: “First of all, it was an amazing job by Acura and HPD for giving us two cars to fight for the win. I don’t think it can be overstated how amazing that accomplishment is when considering the likes of Porsche and BMW and the struggles they had.


Our cars ran flawlessly. To our team, this accomplishment of consecutive top-two finishes is really unprecedented, especially considering it persists through different car manufacturers and specifications. This is our ninth top two since 2013, and I don’t think any other team in the world has that type of consistency in 24-hour races.



Lastly, my teammates all drove like champions. It was inspiring to watch Filipe at the end, charging through the field like that. He always gives everything and leaves nothing on the table. Unfortunately, we didn’t have the pace for the win and ended up second.”



Sheena Monk (#66 Gradient Racing Acura NSX GT3 Evo22) finished fourth in her GTD debut:
“I obviously ecstatic to finish fourth in my first IMSA GTD race. But, coming Monday morning, it will be ‘back to the drawing board’ to try to keep improving. I’m really looking forward to the rest of this season.



 My goals are still the same: try to finish on the podium at every race and be the top ‘Bronze’ [rated] driver.  The start was daunting, but I was very aware role: maintain a strong pace and keep the car safe.  I’m really happy with my effort. I’m just growing and learning; and incredibly grateful to be alongside a bunch of experienced people for it.”



Ashton Harrison (#93 Racers Edge Motorsports Acura NSX GT3 Evo22) finished sixth in GTD
: ”It feels pretty good. We put on one heck of a show at Acura, with the two GT3 NSXs alongside the GTP class.


I'm really excited for the brand. I'm heartbroken about how ours ended [delayed by a mechanical issue in the final laps], but we did such a great job, the team did so well for our first-ever Rolex 24. It's time to get back to work and hopefully finish on the podium or win.


I'm so proud of [co-drivers] Kyle [Marcelli] and Danny [Formal]—and Ryan [Briscoe] slotted in like he had been driving this NSX for year. We had a great time, and I really enjoyed dicing it up with my buddy Mario out there. We're looking forward to [the next race at] Sebring.
