“My plan was to get the holeshot and get
away from everyone else so I could drive my
own race…What my RZR got through today really
shows how awesome this machine is and how
great my sponsors are to put this thing together.
I have the best crew out here. I drive the
car, but they are the ones that keep it going.”
