Preview: Rounds 3 and 4 at Thunderhill

This weekend is Rounds 3 & 4 of the 2016 Formula Car Challenge Championship presented by Goodyear at Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, CA. These rounds will be a true test of my physical fitness, car control, and aggression. After a strong run in the season opener, I have high expectations coming into the weekend!

Thunderhill will be unique as it is one of two tracks (the other being Portland) of the season that I've never visited. So one of the challenges for the weekend will be to learn the track as quick as possible. I've heard that it is a fast, flowing, and physical track. In preparation for this weekend's race, I have been working on my diet & fitness, studying videos, and asking for advice from past Formula Car Challenge racers.

My goal for the weekend is to take home another win. I'm coming into the weekend feeling more confident than I have ever felt before. I plan to keep the momentum rolling this weekend. If I get a clean start, run some aggressive laps, and fight the physical G-forces, I am confident in getting another win.

Worldspeed Motorsports, VMB Driver Development, Axcel Fast Graphics, Yoshida Sushi, and Ramen Naruto have been supporting me and cheering me on after my win at Laguna. I'm pumped to have them along for the ride and I'm even more excited to announce another partnership in the coming weeks!

Thanks for reading! Make sure to check out all the updates on my social media sites this weekend! Let's grab ourselves another gold trophy!
