“Coming straight off of a win at Watkins Glen is a great place to be going into this weekend. I think Dalton and I will make a good team and we will be able to get back in the championship lead!”

“I am very excited for my IMSA debut with PR1 at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park. I appreciate the opportunity to run alongside Matt in the Oreca LMP2. My career began at this track, racing in F1600, so it seems fitting that my first endurance event will be here as well. I will be approaching this weekend with an open-mind, looking to learn as much as possible, and I am looking forward to contributing to the great run the team is having this year.”
