1 - This week, we are going for an oval race at Kansas. How will you approach this race?

I have no idea, but I'm excited for it! I have very limited oval experience (I'm talking a couple rookie street stock races at Charlotte) I will definitely try to make the practice session to learn how to drive in a pack somewhat coherently. I'm thinking its gonna be a fun one!

2 - What is you favorite pet?

I'm a dog person. As much as our boston terrier is totally crazy and farts even more than I do, can't help but love the guy.


3 - How your season going after 4 races?

Highs and lows so far. Monza wasn't great for me (MANY spins), but then Brands Hatch was a great success with P2! Then Mosport was....bad. Self destructing errors killed me. Many incident points were had. Heads were hung in shame. I came back determined to at least have a clean race in Montreal, and it netted me a narrow victory!

All in all lots of great racing is happening. I am really enjoying running around the track with you guys, be it in first or last place.

1 - This week, we are going for an oval race at Kansas. How will you approach this race?
Looking forward to it. I will approach it as I always do - practice practice practice. It'll be nice to see how we all stack up on an oval - very different ballgame than the road courses we've been on so far.

2 - What is you favorite pet?
I like dogs, hate cats. Grew up with a savage African Grey parrot.

3 - How your season going after 4 races?
Not bad, two consecutive races with wrecks that have ended any decent points finishes. One was totally my mistakes, one was an unfortunate racing incident. I get more frustrated with my own errors than anything.

1. I'm going to get some extra practice in. I've never been on an oval in iracing.

2. Dogs. We have a Goldendoodle, he's amazing.

3. Being my first season, I want to try and work on my consistency. Out and out pace will come, but if I can't drive a whole race without a major incident, then I'm nowhere. Things have gone better than I thought. Some silly rookie mistakes, but I think its going well.

Good race tonight guys. Lots of fun. Still not sure what happened there Justin. I think I may have got sucked down to you and reacted too late. Sucks that your wing got dmged on that.

Totally tried the undercut on you there Carsten. Your pit entry and stop must have been perfect to come out 3 seconds ahead. I could have gotten away with less fuel so that could have been it too. Great race!

Yea, I ran out of fuel on the last corner and coasted it across. I was worried that you guys would all get in a line to draft and catch me, but I guess the draft doesn't affect these cars as much.

No worries at all Carsten, I was white knuckled the whole time just trying to keep my line so may have not even noticed you!
