EVENT NOTES

Sage Karam will be making his third start with Sam Hunt Racing in 2024, piloting the No. 26 Synergy Modular GR Supra in the Pacific Office Automation 147 on Saturday at Portland International Raceway.


In 2023, Sage Karam nearly collected Sam Hunt Racing's first win after a near-perfect weekend at Road America. After battling in the Top-5 all race, Karam took the lead on the final restart, hitting speedy-dry coming into the final corners which relegated him to a 4th-place finish.
At the time, Sage had collected the team's highest qualifying effort (6th).
Corey Heim now holds the team's highest qualifying effort of third from Phoenix Raceway in 2024.


Out of three starts with Sam Hunt Racing, Karam has been in contention to win all three times.
At Daytona earlier this season, Karam was fourth on the outside with 8 laps remaining before a crash ended the 26 team's day early.
At Circuit of the Americas, Sage was in the Top-5 on the final restart before a crash relegated him to a 17th-place finish.

QUOTES

“I’m really excited to get to Portland with the Synergy Racing team. I’ve been in contention to win in every race I’ve run with Sam Hunt Racing so far. I think this weekend is the time we shake off the bad luck and turn it around. I know that Kris and the crew have been working effortlessly to get our cars prepared for this weekend, and I’m looking forward getting back behind the wheel.”
