He is the caliber of driver that aligns perfectly with our vision and is the type of business and performance minded person who is really going to catapult us to the next level. In the next few weeks we will be announcing our driver and partner line up and will be spending the next couple of months getting our chassis and engine program where it needs to be to accommodate our second team for the start of the 2014 season.”

“At the same time, we continue to generate a high level of interest from companies new to the sport. That validates that we are on the right track. They are intrigued by our unique approach and are interested in leveraging our resources in people and process to grow their businesses. We are excited about what the future holds.”
