de Boulle & “The Patrick’s” Prep for Watkins Glen with Park Place Motorsports
Dallas, TX — de Boulle Motorsports Nick Boulle and the Park Place Motorsports team is prepped and ready to be back together racing in the Michelin Endurance Championship’s third round at this weekend’s Sahlen’s 6 Hours of the Glen at Watkins Glen International.
Only weeks ago both Boulle and Park Place Motorsports team principal and driver, Patrick Lindsey, were at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, where Boulle claimed a 12th place class finish and Lindsey claimed a huge 24 Hours of Le Mans victory.
The #73 Park Place Motorsports de Boulle 2019 Porsche GT3R will feature the same trio from Sebring with Boulle and Lindsey alongside Porsche factory ace, Patrick Long. The Watkins Glen 6 Hours takes place in beautiful upstate New York and was recently repaved with asphalt now known for its smoothness and high grip.
Nick Boulle: “I’m just really excited to get back in the Porsche GT3R with Park Place Motorsports. I know several guys have been with the team since my last round in Sebring, and I’m really looking forward to seeing how they’ve developed it. Every round with ‘The Patricks’ has been really good and I feel like we have just kind of been waiting for everything to come together. Hopefully Watkins Glen can be that weekend for us. Both the Porsche Factory Ace Pat and the Le Mans winner Pat are great teammates and so I’m looking forward to showing what we can do together this weekend!”
This will be Nick’s first time at the legendary racing circuit which has a history dating back all the way back to 1948. The first Watkins Glen Grand Prix was held in 1948 on a 6.6-mile course around Watkins Glen State Park and the village of Watkins Glen. The racing circuit has played host to events ranging from round of the Formula One World Championship to an event part of the World SportsCar Championship.
This weekend’s Sahlen’s 6 Hours of the Glen will take place on Sunday afternoon from 8:45AM CST to 2:45PM CST and will be streamed live online at IMSA.tv. The race update will then be played on the NBCSN channel on Sunday evening from 6:00PM to 9:00PM CST.

About McFadden & Miller
The McFadden & Miller Story now spans seven decades of construction excellence. Founded in 1946, McFadden & Miller, Ltd. began life shortly after World War II through a partnership with a young Trammel Crow, making it the oldest and most experienced GC in the region. Today McFadden & Miller retains its position as a premier design/builder in the DFW area. The structural designs McFadden & Miller implemented many years ago were so unique to the industry that years later the McFadden & Miller “brand” is recognized and favored as an asset to any real estate portfolio. Mark Jacobson now serves as President of McFadden & Miller, with Jon Jacobson performing as Vice-President. Most “general” contractors broker every phase of construction to the lowest bidder, but McFadden & Miller actually self-performs such functions as engineering, mass grading and concrete work. This ability as well as their unique method of de-centralized project management, relying on the expertise of field managers to run projects, allows for economies, control and quality unmatched by other GC’s. McFadden & Miller began with a philosophy of treating its clients with fairness, honesty, and consideration, and always delivering the best possible product at a reasonable price. Sixty million square feet of industrial, office and retail product later McFadden & Miller is still embracing those ethics.
