Kurtz is a serial entrepreneur and started CrowdStrike, his second company, back in 2011. Though he is busy travelling the globe for his role with his Irvine, California-based firm, Kurtz is no stranger to racing. He brings competition experience from the Radical Cup to the TRG-AMR squad, where he joins current team drivers Derek DeBoer, Jason Alexandridis, Kris Wilson and Max Riddle. CrowdStrike’s involvement with TRG is prominently featured on the car, with the company’s bold logo forming the stunning black and red Aston Martin Vantage livery. Kurtz will race the No. 04 at Road America, Sonoma, and Laguna Seca, while his company’s guests enjoy the TRG-AMR race paddock hospitality. “Partnering with TRG is a great move for both CrowdStrike and a great platform for our customers and partners,” said Kurtz. “From a corporate perspective, bringing our business network to the race paddock will energize our invited guests and the visceral experience of racing instantly creates common ground. There’s just not a more effective ice breaker. Racing the TRG-Aston Martin Vantage — an aggressive, quick car — is the perfect metaphor for what our business does, and being the one to tie that together is going to be a fantastic venture.”
