Amid the various patriotic liveries that will celebrate the Fourth of July during the Sahlen’s Six Hours Of The Glen, the Paul Miller Racing team has chosen a different route to honor the sacrifices and freedoms associated with the holiday.
On track, it’s No. 48 Lamborghini Huracan GT3 will bear the same red, black, and silver colors as it looks to extend its lead in IMSA’s WeatherTech SportsCar Championship GT Daytona class. Off track, the PMR team will play an even more important role as it plays host eight active Army members for the event through its partnership with Full Circle Home.
“Full Circle Home has a unique mission helping deployed troops enhance their relationships back home, and Paul Miller Racing is delighted be hosting a small delegation visiting us from Fort Drum at Watkins Glen,” the veteran team owner told RACER. “They’ll be enjoying the day with our team and soaking up the atmosphere of a great race weekend!”
As one of IMSA’s most ardent supporters of military-related causes, PMR’s affiliation with Operation Motorsport and Team Never Quit is bolstered by its engagement with Full Circle Home.
“Executive Director Vickie Durfee and I know firsthand how difficult life can be for our military families-especially during a deployment,” said Full Circle director Lisa Miller. “Full Circle Home helps bridge the gap between service members and their heroes at home. Thank you, Paul Miller Racing, for supporting our mission, spreading the news, and letting us hitch a ride again this season!”
With their Full Circle guests expected to join the team on pit lane to see pit stop demonstrations and other aspects of preparing an endurance racing team for competition, PMR driver Bryan Sellers says he can’t wait to entertain the troops with an up-close look at the IMSA outfit.
“It’s an honor to have Full Circle Home as part of our program, and especially for this weekend’s race,” he added. “It’s because of our armed forces that we are able to do what we do. They’re the people fighting for our rights, freedom, and safety on a regular basis. It’s the least we can do to let them be a part of the events their service allows us to do.”
