Witness Racing Charlotte Preview

Witness Racing and driver Ennis Bragg are heading to Charlotte this weekend for the second and third rounds of the US Formula 2000 National Championship. After a solid performance at the season opener in Phoenix, AZ, Bragg is determined to deliver even better results in Charlotte. "I've been looking forward to Charlotte ever since we took the checkered flag in Phoenix," Bragg says. "With each race, I feel more and more confident that we can reach our goals in this series."

Phoenix was Bragg's 6th start in a US F2000 race and marked the beginning of just his third year in racing. "Sometimes I feel like I'm behind when I see so many younger drivers in the sport," Bragg says. But, at age 26, Bragg is certainly in good position to make his mark on the world of motorsport. After finishing a degree in electrical engineering from Georgia Tech in 1996, Bragg stormed onto the southeastern SCCA scene to win the 1997 South Atlantic Road Racing Championship in Formula Continental. Running on a small budget for 1999, Bragg and his Witness Racing team are putting all of their efforts into the US F2000 series. "Racing without a sponsor is tough, but as we keep searching, we keep trusting that God will provide us with the resources we need to do what He wants us to do."

For now, Bragg is focused on winning. Whether or not Charlotte proves to be the breakthrough weekend for Witness Racing is yet to be told. But, you can bet that this small-time team is only going to get better.
