NASCAR is new challenge for me and I enjoy how the races focus on my performance. The teams are top caliber and the fans are like any other in racing! Dedicated, excited, passionate. They make the entire experience even more worth while. I can't wait to see what the future holds!

Quote: "This race was a baptism of fire. The Cup car is completely different to what I normally drive, and to be thrown in during a torrential downpour was challenging, but so much fun. I enjoy the wet, so I think the rain helped me be more competitive."
