“Word’s can’t even describe how I feel, I can't believe the sheer luck we have had. For us to have started 17th for race 3 and finish second, is amazing and I am lost for words. Sometimes the key to this category is to just keep it straight , clean and not make any errors. Dad and I can’t be any happier with second place.”
