2014 - Year In Pictures

Well, 2014 has been an amazing year for me and my racing career. I have learned quite a bit when it comes to the racing industry, met some awesome people, signed a manager, further developed my racing skills, was selected by Audi Sport as a driver candidate (Even though the money was lacking) and won my first championship in car racing (In my first year, might I add). 

So, I was thinking about what I could do to symbolize and hold tribute to my first year in car racing. I came up with this little blog entry named "2014 - Year In Pictures". Instead of some long write-up that people won't have time for in this hectic holiday season, I have organized some of the best pictures of my 2014 season; on and off the track. I hope you all enjoy!

Started 11th, made my way up to sixth before the race ended under full course yellow. The last race before Robinson Motorsports was bought and re-opened as Prism Motorsport.

 Photo Credit: Jeff Grose  Roebling Road Raceway - June 2014: I was told there was a lack of grip at Roebling. Thought the tires were on their way out, nope, just a wheel bearing expiring on me. Now I know... refer to bonus photo.

By the second corner of the first lap I was 2nd in class and 4th overall. Then the storms blew in, after about thirty minutes of racing and twenty minutes of tropical storm like weather, the race was red flagged and I scored another podium.
