Grand Am Mustang Challenge Series

So many good things came out of the Barber Race – great relationships, great learning and growth as a driver and a future in Grand Am.

First, Zach Lutz and his father Bob, who together own Lutz Motorsports Industries, have asked me to drive their #33 Mustang in the Mustang Challenge Series this year. This is a great series and a great car and a great opportunity. We expect to do well in the remainder of the series this year and use this opportunity to learn several of the major road tracks used by Grand Am. A great added benefit of racing with Lutz Motorsports is that, through a partnership with Compass360 Racing, the Mustang is supported and paddocked with Compass360 at all Grand Am races.

The Lutz Motorsports Team is pro racing at its best and I am proud to be part of their Team this year. Check out Zach’s career and great pics of #33 Mustang at the 9 hour endurance race at Road Atlanta last year at Zach and his co-driver, Ryan Eversley, recently won the Grand Am ST Class race at VIR.

Secondly, I want to thank Karl Thomson, the Team Owner at Compass360, who has been generous beyond all expectation providing advice, opportunity, opened doors and support. His plan, as well as Zach and my plan, is to co-drive one of the Compass 360 cars next year and compete for the Championship Grand Am ST in 2011. So , race fans, that is what we are going to do! Also, later in the 2010 season, I will be driving with Compass360 at the Continental Tire Series race at Miller in September.
