Although Müller got what he describes as a “late start” in racing, his career statistics don’t show it. In addition to winning the GTE Pro category at the Le Mans 24 Hours in 2016 with co-drivers Joey Hand and Sébastien Bourdais, he earned a p3 there with BMW with Hand and finished second in the GT category at Le Mans in 1999 with Champion Racing. He won the ALMS drivers’ championship in 2011 with Hand for Rahal-Letterman Racing, following wins at the Sebring 12 Hours, Grand Prix of Long Beach and Lime Rock Park. He has extensive experience racing in IMSA and DTM, among other series.

Westbrook earned the new Ford GT’s first win at the wheel of the No. 67 Ford GT (IMSA) at Laguna Seca (Monterey, Calif.) in May. Thanks to a disciplined, commanding final stint and a strong start by co-driver Ryan Briscoe, Westbrook was able to reach the checkered flag on just one pit stop to the other teams’ two or three. Westbrook, who has more No. 1 qualifiers than any other driver in the global Ford Chip Ganassi Racing line-up, says he’d be a professional cook if he hadn’t made a career of racing.

He has eight IndyCar wins to his credit and won both the Rolex 24 at Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring in 2015. Briscoe got a quick start to his racing career in 1993, when he climbed into his first kart and won Australian, North American and Italian karting championships within five years.
