Millen dominated the competition from the very first day, topping practice runs and early heats, cinching pole position, and eventually earning a victory on Sunday afternoon while never once letting anyone get ahead of him.
This marked the Hyundai racing team’s second win of the season, which was made all the sweeter thanks to the location of the event. The Los Angeles GRC race is the closest of the season to both Hyundai and Rhys Millen Racing corporate headquarters. It was like winning at home, and no doubt many local fans and employees enjoyed it.
“We’re extremely proud of our Hyundai team’s second win of the 2014 season, coming fresh off our victory in Daytona just a few short weeks ago,” said Millen. “It’s amazing; we just believe in the car and myself and the crew. We brought that momentum to Los Angeles, qualifying fastest yesterday, winning the semi-final and then the main without being passed. I couldn’t be more proud of our effort.”
