Driving Highlights

Pirelli World Challenge Touring Car A (TCA) Driver's Champion 2017

2016: Started 11 TCA races, recording four Top-5s and nine Top-10s. Finished 4th in the Driver's championship. Won TCA Rookie-of-the-Year.

Career Highlights: 2012 first season SM highlights: Podium in first Pro–IT Spec Miata race; two first place finishes at the NARRC Runoffs at Lime Rock and a pole, fastest lap and first place finish at NJMP. 2013 highlights include his first win at Watkins Glen, winning the Pro–IT race at NJMP and winning his first Monticello Motorsports Club race. It was a great thrill and quite a learning experience finishing well in three Grand Am Conti Series races with another rookie Dylan Murcott. 2014 netted five wins in 17 events including his first win at my favorite track, Watkins Glen in a tough field of 36 Spec Miatas. Had a great time running with Tom Long and Britt Casey in the Conti Series and Freedom Motorsports. In 2015 he ran almost all of his laps at MMC to refine the basics and increase consistency. Four poles, four wins and 10 podiums in 20 races in 2015 with the highlight being his first pole in an SCCA Majors race.
