“We wanted to do something special to mark the occasion, and we felt this was the best way we could honor the event,” said Magnus Racing team owner and driver John Potter.
“Space exploration and the historical significance behind it has always been something I’ve held a long admiration for, so this is a very personal project to me."
"Obviously the Apollo 11 mission is an amazing tribute to human ingenuity and creativity, and that’s something that translates extremely well to our sport."
"I’m glad we could pay tribute, and of course I appreciate everyone on the team, as well as IMSA for some of the accommodations they’ve made to change our number and color panel, for making this a reality. Hopefully we can pay the ultimate honor by bringing home a win.”
