Spec Miata Race this weekend:

I was racing in an SCCA Spec Miata Race last weekend at Sonoma Raceway. I qualified P5/46 Miatas, and at the start, was able to lead my first ever Spec Miata Race! I ended up finishing P4 after being caught up in a slower-lapped car while battling for P3.

After the incident with the lapped car, I was sent to P5, 7 seconds back from P4, with only 1/3rd of the race remaining. On the final lap, I made a pass to claim P4 around the outside of Turn 2! (full video will be posted to YouTube).

I would like to Thank Ron Gayman for all of the help and support that he has given me in Spec Miata. Without you, Ron, I wouldn’t have become the driver I am today.


As always, I would not be able to go racing without the help of my partners.

I would like to thank Mazda Motorsports USA, Max Papis Innovations, Haag Performance, Penn Elcom, Spec MX-5 Challenge, Polo America Racing & Polo America Magazine, and Foxxr Digital Marketing, the success of this weekend wouldn’t happen without the help of all my partners.
