I just wanted to send a quick update everyone that I will be racing this weekend at Mid Ohio! I owe a big thank you to a few who I don’t think want to be mentioned, but helped solidify our budget for the weekend. Thank you! Also, the UPS Store on Stafford Road in Plainfield expanded their partnership to help. If you are on the west side of Indy or Hendricks County, please support them. John and Andy not only provide standard UPS shipping options, but also have high quality printing services including posters, yard signs, canvas and foam board in big or small quantities.
We also will be working hard to support some of the causes we and our supporters care deeply about and will have some fun things coming up to support them.
Looking ahead, we are planning on skipping the Toronto weekend in two weeks. The Toronto street race seems to always deliver significant crash damage throughout the weekend to well over half of the field. Since I’ve already had three DNFs for either mechanicals or being collected, we are not in contention for any scholarship money and it doesn’t make sense to use up budget for an event that is highly likely to produce a big crash bill. But, we have some possibilities for new partners to get back on track for the final two events at Circuit of the Americas and Portland with Turn 3 Motorsport to continue my development to push for the championship next year.
Also, there is still time for individuals and companies to get involved with our program this season, not fully dependent on my events. We have some really great packages available for the August 11-13th Brickyard weekend in Indianapolis when INDYCAR, and NASCAR race on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course. And even though the USF Pro Series won’t be racing that weekend, we will be providing VIP entertainment packages! These memorable experiences could be used for clients, prospects, staff or executives to network – really anyone who might want to join us for a cool weekend at IMS. They include suite tickets, parking, VIP tours, and more. I’d love to hang out with you during that weekend (and it will help us as we work to get to the last part of the season)! If you’re interested just hit reply to this email or reach out to my manager (my Dad 😜).
Thank you to Turn 3 and Peter Dempsey for saving my seat while we secured the budget and getting my car quickly repaired! I have had some success at Mid Ohio with wins in two lower categories and a fastest race lap in USF2000, so I’m hoping to capitalize on the opportunity.
Thank you as well for the continued support from the IU Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center and End Lung Cancer Now, Race for RP and the Relapsing Polychondritis Foundation, Browning Chapman, Prime 47 downtown Indy, California Closets, Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery, Cusick Motorsports, LOHLA Sport, CG CPAs, and Subway of Hobart/Valparaiso.
