JDC Motorsports will field a Duqueine D08 Nissan LMP3 car for the newly formed AL Autosport team in IMSA Prototype Challenge next year.

The Minnesota-based operation, which is expected to return to IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship competition with a Cadillac DPi-V.R next year, will expand its efforts in IPC by partnering with AL Autosport and drivers Alex Damalas and Alexander Koreiba.

JDC has three IPC titles to its credit with the former Prototype Lights machinery, the team’s most recent coming in 2016.

“I’m very excited to partner with AL Autosport, Alex Damalas and Alexander Koreiba for the 2022 IMSA Prototype Challenge season,” said JDC Motorsports team owner
John Church.

“Season preparations are already well underway and I’m confident that we can make some great progress with this group and aim for some results early on.”

Damalas will be embarking on his first season of professional competition.

“I got a lot of great experience doing my track day stuff, but what IMSA’s been able to do with LMP3 cars gives guys like me a great opportunity to step up to the professional level,” he said.

“I’m really excited to be partnering with JDC Motorsports. They run a first-class operation. I’m confident will make a lot of progress on the car and the program throughout the 2022 season.”

Twenty four-year old Koreiba will join the team alongside Damalas. A graduate of the Lucus Oil Racing Series, Koreiba earned a third place championship following a slew of podiums in 2018.

The Missouri native most recently competed in a Formula 4 race at Circuit of The Americas.

“It’s a true blessing to have this opportunity with Alex Demalas, John Church, JDC Motorsports and the entire AL Autosport with JDC team,” added Koreiba.

“A year ago I didn’t think this would be possible, but here we are getting ready to test before we make our 2022 debut.

“Everything I’ve worked for at this point has prepared me the best that I could be, I just can’t wait to get on track and see what we can do.”
