"Brian (Ma) fits very well with the program and the individuals that we have. We like his youth and his aggressiveness. That's what we want, because we have an aggressive driver and an aggressive program too," said Barry Brooke, President of Arciero Brooke Racing.

"I kind of acquainted a race team with a kid board with square holes, round holes, triangles, and the whole deal. Then I tried to fit the team members in those specific holes.

"I know Barry (Brooke) for a few years and I know he has been trying to put this team together for a while. I am very glad to join Arciero Brooke Racing. It's a challenge for me to cooperate with the team to reach its goals. I think Max (Wilson) is a very good driver and he has all the potential to do well in the Series. Although, we are a new team and we area little bit behind, as far as preparation wise, I am confident that we will do our best to do well. My goal for this season is to help the team to perform satisfactory. It is an honor that Barry (Brooke) asked me to join his team, trusting on my capabilities for this position," Brian Ma said.
