I turn 17 years-old today. It’s kind of a special day because I am now old enough to start testing in the Firestone Indy Lites car. I don’t have any solid plans for testing yet, but I certainly want to be in a FIL car this year. I also understand that my first priority is the Star Mazda championship.
We have been testing more than ever at Andretti Autosport. I have been personal fitness training for this season harder than ever. Considering the testing and training, I feel that I am in the best shape to do well than I have ever been. I just completed a very successful wrestling season for my high school. I missed qualifying for the Pennsylvania State Championships by only one point!
I depart tomorrow for a private two-day Andretti Autosport Star Mazda test. I am turning mu focus 100% to racing now that wrestling is complete. I sense a seriousness amongst myu team that can’t be described. I can just sense a commitment for results. Then in a week and a half, we depart for the first official series test at Barber Motorsports Park. It will be exciting to see the new DW12 up close and personal at that test.
