Pre-Race Interview
1. Round 2 at Sebring brought on some excellent racing. How did this race go for you?
2. Second road course is Barber - do you like this car/track combination?
3. Many of us use add-on apps for in-race timing data or pit-stop/pit crew assistance. Which do you use/prefer?

Overall pretty good. Unsurprisingly I was lacking pace a bit, but Sebring has never been a strong track for me in any car. I succumbed to pressure at the start and found myself at the back of the pack. I managed to not make any major mistakes for the rest of the race however and will take the result happily.

I think it's a good combo. Similar to driving around Laguna Seca. Might be tough to overtake unless you get brave on the brakes. Otherwise it feels a bit like a rollercoaster ride going around here! I am still breaking pro Mazda habits so took a few tries to actually get around the track haha.

I used to use ir pitcrew to manage fuel, but it was messing with my pit stops by not letting me take tires, so I have stopped until I get that fixed. I did start using crewcheif though, and it has gotten pretty good over the last few years. Worth a try for anyone looking for something that can do voice recognition. Plus having the spotter swear at me and call me by name when I screw up is pretty fun haha.

The race went pretty well. Owen, Ray and myself had a good battle for a while in the beginning. Ray had a small mishap which let me and owen pull away. We ran conservatively but once i took over the lead I spun and damaged my rear wing. Pitted and thought I fixed the issue but I was never back up to the same pace, atleast I didn't think so. Finished second due to Owen's unfortunate spin. But it was a fun race and I am pleased so far with team Cash for Crash showings.

I think this will be an awesome course for this car! This is a fun track and to have a fast true open wheel car to drive it will be a blast. I expect a lot of mistakes on my part for the next 2 hours of practice lol.

I use Ispeed for fuel information. I want something better but haven't had time to set it up. For being yelled at I just listen to Tyler!

1. I think it went a lot better than expected. We made a mistake early, but managed to make it back to take the W after pressuring Owen into a mistake.
2. I normally am not a fan of Barber, but with this new car it seems I am a fan of every track. I did the official series race here on Monday and it felt great.
3. I don't use anything at present. I used to use an app that spat out fuel numbers, but it no longer works.
