Our Class is a very competitive class and it didn’t come easy, every Mile this year was earned and never given as our class stayed that close all series long. Being able to complete the Baja 1000 Driving the entire 800 Mile race to wrap up the championship was such A accomplishment for myself. A lot of people thought I was crazy, but I knew I could do it especially with Navigators Erica Sacks and Preston Murray by my side.

We were consistent the entire season with four 2nd places, even tho we wanted to win a race we are stoked to end up with the championship.” said Sacks.
