2014 USCR (Sebring 12): CORE Autosport Fourth On Sebring PC Grid

The defending Sebring PC polesitter’s lap times steadily dropped throughout the 15-minute session around the 17-turn, 3.74-mile road course composed of retired airport runways. In his quest to beat the provisional pole time, Braun turned his fastest lap, a 1:55.603 (116.410 mph), on lap five of seven. His effort put the No. 54 on the outside of the second row.

Braun will share the car with Jon Bennett and James Gue during the legendary 12-hour race. FlexBox also returns as a sponsor following their successful paring with CORE autosport at the Rolex 24 at Daytona.

CORE ’s No. 54 ORECA FLM09 will take the green flag Saturday, March 15, at 10:15 am ET. The race will be broadcast on FOX Sports 1 beginning at 10 am ET and transition to live streaming on IMSA.com at 1pm ET. Viewers in Europe, Asia and Africa can watch the race in its entirety on IMSA.com.

Driver: No. 54 ORECA FLM09
“We had a little bit different racetrack with the Continental Challenge race happening right before we qualified. We sort of saw a racetrack that I think we hadn’t really seen all weekend, and I don’t think we’ll see it again really. It was a little bit indicative of a green racetrack. The CORE autosport guys have been working their butts off all week. Hopefully it goes back to what it was when we’ve been quick all week and it’s in good shape for tomorrow.

“The race is going to be about staying out of trouble. I don’t think ultimate lap time is going to play much of an effect in the race. I think its going to be about all three or four drivers staying clean, being smart, being patient and getting through traffic—all the things that it takes to be good in an endurance race and a lot less about raw speed.

“It’s always nice to be on the pole, obviously. It’s a competition, we’d like to win, but, we’re going to start 10 feet behind the pole sitter, so I don’t think in 12 hours that should be too hard to make up.”
