I was fortunate to have a good weekend at Daytona for the Roar Before the 24: we had some great weather, and it was very exciting to see the new cars, teams, and drivers descending on Daytona from all around the world.

For me personally, it was a very productive few days to have some meetings with teams and the series to talk about the upcoming season. I hope to have some racing plans within the series this coming year.

At any rate, I’ll be attending all of the races as part of the IMSA Hot Lap program on behalf of Mazda. If you are attending any IMSA races this year, be sure to try to win a hot lap pass to get a pre-race ride in a track-modified Mazda MX-5 RF. You can enter to win at the Mazda Fan Zone in the paddock!

Looking ahead to 2019, there’s a lot of excitement on tap for the year. With that said, I want to know what you want to read here on this blog! Is it more driving technique tips, track specifics, motorsports career advice, or something else? I really enjoy having these conversations with driving enthusiasts and racers, as well as fans. Email me or leave a comment on my Facebook page and let me know what you want to read about!
