AL Autosport with JDC Introduces 2022 IMSA Prototype Challenge Campaign

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (November 19, 2021) – AL Autosport will partner with JDC Motorsports, making their competition debut in 2022 with a IMSA Prototype Challenge campaign. Drivers, Alex Damalas and Alexander Koreiba will be set to wheel the AL Autosport with JDC Duqueine D08 Nissan, beginning at the season opening Daytona round in January.

A mainstay in the IMSA paddock, JDC Motorsports brings a wealth of knowledge to the program. The Minneapolis-based group has been campaigning in the IMSA Prototype Challenge since 2011, having transitioned to the LMP3 format as early as it’s inaugural year in 2017. With three series championships to their name, the group’s technical expertise will be vital to next season’s efforts.

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

Stepping up to his first full season in professional competition, is Texas native, Alex Damalas. Damalas looks to hone his knowledge and build on his track day experience, diving right into the deep end of IMSA Prototype Challenge 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,” said Damalas. “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 Alexander 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, making huge strides upon debut.

“It’s a true blessing to have this opportunity with Alex Damalas, 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 in Daytona. 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.”

The group has already taken delivery of their new Duqueine D08 Nissan, with expectations to begin testing as early as December. The 2022 IMSA Prototype Challenge season opens with a three-hour race as part of the Roar Before the Rolex 24 At Daytona weekend on Jan. 21-23.
