PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports captured their third consecutive win and moved into the points lead at the Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix Presented By Acura with their LMP2 entry. The team also had one podium finish out of their two Prototype Challenge entries as part of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
 
 
 

After winning at Mid-Ohio, Watkins Glen, and now at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports No. 52 ORECA LMP2 entry leads the No. 38 Performance Tech Motorsports ORECA in the overall championship points standings. A season staple, Matt McMurry was joined by local Canadian, Dalton Kellet who made his IMSA debut and secured his first IMSA win in front of his hometown crowd.
 


The LMP2 class competes next month at Road America for the IMSA Road Race Showcase on Sunday, Aug. 4.
 


The two Prototype Challenge entries, which ran the day before the LMP2 class included the No. 52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports Ligier JS P3 piloted by Chris Archinaco and Scott Huffaker and the No. 70 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports Ligier JS P3 driven by Joel Janco and Jonatan Jorge. The No. 52 finished an impressive performance in 2nd place while the No. 70 faced adversity and finished in 16th place.
 


The next IMSA Prototype Challenge race will take place at VIRginia International Raceway during the Michelin GT Challenge race weekend Aug. 23-25
 
 
 


Matt McMurry – Driver of the No.52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports ORECA LMP2



“Really happy with this win at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. The team’s just been performing perfectly. The last three races the car’s been great. The execution of the pit stops have been great. And our teammates have been doing well this whole time too. We gained the championship lead with this one and showed that we have the pace to stay in the lead for the rest of the season.”
 


Dalton Kellet – Driver of the No.52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports ORECA LMP2



“What a weekend! Racing at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park with PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports was a blast, and they gave Matt and me a perfect car. I ran the first two stints, and we were able to take the lead on a good strategy call and grew the gap, being efficient in traffic.



Matt did an excellent job in the second half of the race and brought the car home for the win. Being my first IMSA event, there was a lot to learn. The team did a great job helping me get up to speed with traffic, pit-stops, driver changes, and a new car!”
