Daytona : Season Opener - Hero to Zero

We had an amazing car, the MINI JCW Team provided us with the car to win with. Nate qualified P2 and due to an aftermarket part failure on our two sister cars, we had a lead of over 40+ seconds. The race was ours… then just as the failure had hit our sister cars #73 and #52, it hit our #37 car. The axle failed. Our STEP program technicians did an incredible job quickly changing our axle and getting us out ahead of Mark (#52) and Mat Pombo (#73). We finished P4 all disappointed but proud of how strong our MINI JCW team is. As always, thank you to my team at Atelier FAS to hold down the fort while I get to represent our incredible MINI brand. #artscarsracecars
