Boulle to Debut at 24 Hours of Le Mans with DC Racing
Dallas, TX— Former Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona Champion, Nick Boulle— of de Boulle, an independent jewelry salon in Dallas and Houston, has been confirmed as part of Jackie Chan DC Racing’s lineup for next month’s 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Boulle will join David Cheng, who claimed his first Le Mans podium as a member of the #37 crew twelve months ago, and Pierre Nicolet at the wheel of the team’s No. 33 Ligier JS P217 Gibson. Reigning IMSA Prototype champion Ricky Taylor will join Come Ledogar and former Le Mans GTE-Am class winner David Heinemeier Hansson at the wheel of the team’s No. 34 Ligier JS P217 Gibson, which is one of the Chinese team’s two auto-invite entries that will be operated by OAK Racing.
“To say that I am excited to be racing with Jackie Chan DC Racing at the 24 Hours of Le Mans is an understatement,” exclaimed Boulle. “Le Mans has a huge place in racing history and is one of the greatest single sporting events there is – period.”
This will mark Boulle’s first start in the French endurance classic. Sixty cars along with their drivers have been officially confirmed for this June's 24 Hours of Le Mans at Circuit De La Sarthe. The race's most competitive class, LMP2, features a mix of 20 Dallara, Oreca and Ligier cars, which Boulle will drive, each competing with 600 horsepower Gibson Technology 4.2L V-8 engines.
“The Circuit de La Sarthe circuit is daunting to say the least and it has a huge amount of history, but the team around me has experience that will be invaluable as I settle in.”
The Chinese racing team ascends from the astonishing victory and second place in LMP2 class and a double-overall-podium finish at Circuit de La Sarthe in last year’s race. Despite the disappointment of missing the 2017 FIA WEC championship title at the showdown in 6 Hours of Bahrain, the team strongly fought back at the 2017-18 Asian Le Mans Series clinching titles in both LMP2 and LMP3 class, which contributed to the two additional invitation for the imminent 24-hour race, on 16-17 June.
“I think the Ligier JS-P217 has made leaps & bounds with their Le Mans aero package for this race as well. Looking forward to having a good result for Jackie Chan DC Racing and representing in this racing classic.”
To make Boulle’s debut possible, de Boulle Motorsports partnered with several prominent companies: Concepta Labs, Dallas Auto Exchange, Hydro Carbon Exchange and Meridian
Veterinary Capital. Boulle added, “I can't wait to see what else this partnership leads to next.” In addition, to becoming a racing partner, the companies also receive a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of attending Le Mans with a VIP experience that only de Boulle could offer.

About Dallas Auto Exchange
Crockett Gambrel founded Dallas Auto Exchange after spending over a decade being immersed in the cultures of two of the area’s most prestigious luxury auto groups. The lessons learned from the strong leadership teams at these outstanding organizations helped him form a solid foundation, a servant attitude, and a strong moral compass. He excelled at sales and building relationships with clients, and he was consistently recognized for his over-the-top customer service scores. The idea for Dallas Auto Exchange started when he realized the need for a company that could fill the void that is left between the two most common types of automotive
dealerships. On one end of the spectrum you have the questionable cars, hidden problems, and
sub-par ethics that are often found at bargain basement stores. On the other end are the luxury dealerships that typically offer great customer service, fancy perks and quality vehicles, but typically at substantially higher prices. His vision for Dallas Auto Exchange was to provide customers with unmatched overall value by offering solid cars, outstanding customer service, honest advice, and a transparent buying experience that was actually fun. Our expansive indoor showroom is modern and impeccably clean, but it isn’t furnished with priceless works of art, or
rich mahogany furniture. We prefer to pass the savings on to you.
About Hydro Carbon Exchange
Hydrocarbon Exchange Corporation was created in June of 2004 as the culmination of a natural gas marketing effort that began with a multiyear contract to purchase one hundred percent of the production drilled from acreage commitments dedicated to Texas Energy Management. The core of business for Hydrocarbon Exchange originates primarily in the Lone Star State, and transportation contracts are held on every major intrastate pipeline to assure our producer community the highest in netback pricing flexibility. In addition, there are also several interstate transport agreements allowing pricing opportunities as far west as the California border and as far North as Minnesota and Wisconsin city gates. In many cases we offer pricing flexibility to all of our customers who prefer to have options other than their locational stated indexes. Hydrocarbon utilizes both the Nymex and the derivative markets to eliminate pricing risk on those products. Natural gas is one of the most volatile commodities in the world today. We at Hydrocarbon have all the necessary tools to assist our supply and market base with dealing with that volatility, and for any type of pricing flexibility the select.
