"It's a big emotional moment," Alex Job said of being inducted into the Sebring Hall of Fame. "I never, ever expected this. It's beyond my wildest dreams. To be part of the history here at Sebring go forward is just incredible.
"I'm very sad that Holly [Job] is not here to accept it with me because she's 50 percent of this, if not more. She should be accepting the award. Unfortunately, she could not here. But, she's here in our hearts.
"It's all about the people," Job said describing all of team members that contributed to Alex Job Racing's success over the years. "This is the epitome of team sport I always say. It takes everyone doing the best job they can - drivers and crew included - to be successful. We've got a great team. We've got a great engineering staff. We have incredibly dedicated crew people. And, we've been blessed with some really strong drivers through the years. We've also had some awesome partners like WeatherTech and The Heart of Racing. In years past, we've had Porsche support. All of that has led to this success."
Alex Job Racing has two Porsche 911 GT3 R race cars competing at Sebring this weekend. In the No. 22 Alex Job Racing/WeatherTech entry, Cooper MacNeil (Hinsdale, Ill.), Leh Keen (Atlanta) and Gunnar Jeanette (Salt Lake City, Utah) will contest the race, while drivers in No. 23 Team Seattle/Alex Job Racing car will be Ian James (Phoenix), Mario Farnbacher (Germany), and Alex Riberas (Spain).
