I want to thank everyone who played a part in making the Team USA Scholarship happen this year. This will be an amazing experience for Connor and I, and we are both excited to see what it is like to race in Europe. To have my name on the same list as Jimmy Vasser, Bryan Herta, A.J. Allmendinger, Andy Lally, Memo Gidley, etc. is an amazing feeling. My goals are to do as well as Conor Daly and Josef Newgarden did last year in the scholarship, and I feel that I have a good shot at the win.
I will be running with Cliff Dempsey in the Dempsey racing pit at both the Formula Ford Festival and the Walter Hayes Trophy. I got to meet him this week at the Petit Le Mans, and he is a wonderful person. I am looking forward to spending more time with him and his team in England.
Everyone keep posted, because I will keep a blog updated daily while I am in England to share the experience with everyone else.
