Nick Boulle, President of Texas-based jewelers De Boulle, is set to finish up the IMSA season this week at Michelin Raceway Road in Atlanta.

In doing so, Boulle returns to the Hardpoiont team joining Rob Ferriol and Katherine Legge in Saturday’s 10-hour Motul Petit Le Mans endurance classic in the No. 99 GridRival/de Boulle Diamond and Jewelry Porsche 911 GT3 R.

This year’s race is certain to be memorable with impacts from Hurricane Ian expected to affect road conditions and visibility for drivers.

The track is already considered challenging with flowing high-speed turns, blind corners, significant elevation changes, and bumps which give the track its character.

However, the impending hurricane will surely complicate this already demanding track.

Friday’s two-hour Michelin Pilot Challenge race can be seen live streaming on Peacock at 1:10 p.m. ET on September 30, and tape delayed on USA Network at Noon ET on Monday, October 10.

The jeweler returns to Hardpoint to bookend the season after opening as the team’s fourth driver at the Rolex 24 At Daytona, with Boulle qualifying the car at Daytona and helping the team to a top-10 finish at the endurance race.

Boulle’s last appearance at Petit Le Mans was in 2018, when he drove an LMP2 car for Performance Tech Motorsports.

That day ended early for Boulle’s team, but not before he was able to make up ground for his team in a successful stint.

Nick Boulle, President of De Boulle Jewelers and Driver, No. 99 Porsche 911 GT3 R, commented: “I’m really excited to get back behind the wheel of the No. 99 Hardpoint Porsche 911 GT3 R at Road Atlanta to bookend the season! We tested last week here and that helped me to get reacquainted with the Porsche.

“I’m hoping we can continue that momentum and make a good run at Petit Le Mans next week. I have to give a big thanks to de Boulle Motorsports and the Hardpoint team for a second opportunity in the car to finish the season. Hopefully we can surprise some people this weekend with our performance on what is always a long and exciting race.”

Earlier this year, Nick and his family were featured in the WATCHPRO Hot 100.
