Dempsey announced earlier this month he’ll compete in the full United SportsCar season.

“I think I’m getting much more competitive, much more consistent lap times, a better understanding of traffic and a better understanding of how to talk to the engineers and express what I’m getting from the car,” Dempsey said. “I’m improving the more seat time I get, with the more experience I get. So when I show up at the track, I know that I have a shot at winning if everything goes right.”
