2021 Champion Announcement!
I am very happy and excited to announce that Mazda Motorsports has nominated Bryson Morris and I to be part of the Idemitsu MX-5 Cup Scholarship Shootout presented by BFGoodrichTires! Thank you to everyone involved in this.
I am very grateful and flattered that I would be considered for the shootout!
Here is a quote from David Cook, Mazda Motorsports Business Development Manager:
“Supporting our Mazda racers for years has been a source of pride of our company and colleagues,” commented David Cook, Mazda Motorsports’ business development manager. “A highlight of our program was when we announced the creation of the first club racing factory team, only to be surpassed when we selected Bryson Morris and Alex Berg to comprise the driver lineup,” Cook continued, “Both young racers continue to exhibit natural speed and work ethic behind the wheel. That is only part of the story, though. What differentiates them, even more, is their character, desire to learn, and to develop their off-track skills, communication, and relationships. They have proven themselves as exemplary representatives of the Mazda brand. As such, we are proud to announce that we are breaking our own tradition of nominating the Idemitsu MX-5 Cup presented by BFGoodrich® Tires Shootout nominees until after the SCCA Runoffs and NASA Championships. We are most proud to nominate both Bryson and Alex for the 2021 Shootout that awards three drivers with a combined $260,000 in support to compete in the following year’s MX-5 Cup championship, where more than a half-a-million dollars is awarded, including a quarter-million dollars to the champion.”
