They have the right people and have shown me they are willing to do what it takes to win a championship. I'm looking forward to working with my new teammates, Mishael Abbott and Kurt Roehrig, and the rest of the B-K Motorsports team. I owe a lot to Skip Barber and my investors for this fantastic career opportunity."
