I’ve known [team owner] Bobby Regan for a long time, since I was on minibikes, and know a lot of guys on the team. They’re a great group of guys, and I’m looking forward to working with them.”

It wasn’t really about results or replacing someone; it was more about giving back to the sport and giving someone an opportunity. We’re really excited to have him join the team and are looking forward to getting started on Monday.”
