IMSA Road America: Late Driver Change for Alex Job Racing

by Daniel Lloyd

GTD outfit Alex Job Racing has confirmed a late driver change ahead of this weekend’s IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship round at Road America.

Germany’s Sven Müller will replace Leh Keen in the #22 WeatherTech liveried Porsche 911 GT3-R, sharing the car with regular driver Cooper MacNeil.

Team owner Alex Job said that “off-track circumstances” would prevent Keen from taking part in the ninth round of the championship.

“We decided to make a driver change for the rest of the season in the WeatherTech Porsche,” said Job. “Leh Keen has won races with us, but off the track circumstances led to a change.”

“We wish Leh all the best going forward. Sven is a fast young driver who is currently leading both the Supercup and Carrera Cup series in Europe.”

“We are looking forward to having a successful weekend of racing at Road America. We will reassess where we are with the #22 Porsche after this weekend.”

Sven Müller made his IMSA WTSCC debut at the Rolex 24 in January with Frikadelli Racing. The 24 year old is a Porsche rising star, and currently leads both the Porsche Supercup and Porsche Carrera Cup Germany standings.

Last year Müller contested one round of FIA World Endurance Championship, driving a factory Porsche 911 RSR at Spa.

“It is going to be a real pleasure to drive with Alex Job Racing,” he said. “I already know Mario Farnbacher and Alex Riberas [drivers of the #23 Alex Job Racing entry] from racing in Europe.”

“To have a good strong teammate like Cooper makes this weekend even more interesting. I have been learning the Road America circuit on the simulator and I am looking forward to driving it tomorrow.”

Heading into the Road America weekend, the #22 Alex Job Porsche sits eighth in the GTD championship. Keen and MacNeil’s best result of the season was fifth place at the Sebring and Watkins Glen enduros.
