“A win at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca is critical for our championship hunt this year. If we can get the win here, we’ll be comfortable in the lead going to Petit Le Mans. It’s been a while since I’ve been to this track, but I’m excited to try it out in an LMP2!”

“I am very excited to be back with PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports for the Monterey SportsCar Championship Powered by McLaren. We had success at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, and I enjoyed working with the team. This weekend, I am looking to build on that initial experience and contribute to the team’s successful year. As I gain experience with the car and the series, there will continue to be lots to learn, and I look forward to the challenge. The support, from the team and my partners that helped everything come together is greatly appreciated. WeatherTech Laguna Seca is one of my favorite road courses, and I’m looking forward to getting on track!”
