As Tyler Gonzalez returns to the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge program, IMSA returns to the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS) for the first time since 2014. Taking part in his second race of the 2023 Michelin Pilot Challenge calendar after his debut return alongside Victor Gonzalez at VIRginia International Raceway, Gonzalez is ready to fight for a podium result at the holy grail of motorsports on the corner of 16th Street and Georgetown Road.

This weekend hosts the second four-hour race of the season, with the first being held back in January at the Daytona International Speedway during the annual Rolex 24 event earlier this year. Although Tyler Gonzalez was not competing in the Michelin Pilot Challenge during that event, he does not look at it as a weakness.

“Although I didn’t race the Daytona weekend with the Michelin Pilot Challenge series, I am ready to go this weekend and attack the Indianapolis road course,” explained Gonzalez. “It is the only other four-hour race on the 2023 calendar but with such long races, none are identical.”

Gonzalez explained further, “I am ready to pair up with Victor again after the amazing weekend we had in Virginia, to take on such an iconic track here in Indiana.”

With 14 corners and a length of 2.439 miles, the road course at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is set to host plenty of action with a weekend full of sportscar racing. This event is also the only event at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway where you can camp in the infield. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is famous around the world but has a special place for drivers racing here in America. This weekend Tyler Gonzalez is ready to face the challenge of the Brickyard in the #99 Hyundai Elantra N TCR with Victor Gonzalez Racing.
