“I am very excited to be racing at the Indianapolis 500. It will be my first time on an oval, so will be a whole new experience but it looks like it will be really fun, so I’m excited to try it. I have always watched the race from Europe so I can’t wait to be a part of it. On TV it always looks like such a great event and has been something I have always wanted to be a part of and now I am here. I am really really excited, it’s a dream come true and I can’t wait.”

99th Indianapolis 500 – May 10-24, 2015
“I am looking forward to getting ready for the Indianapolis 500. It has been a strong start to the season for the Hydroxycut Mistic E-Cigs – KVSH Racing team. We have learned a lot about putting together a strong car on the street and road courses and I wish I could tell you that what we have learned we could apply to super-speedway ovals, but I would be lying. We just have to do the same thing for Indy that we have so far this year. Keep are noses to the grindstone, keep digging and get better. If we continue to make progress over the next few days of practice with the new Chevrolet aero package and get stronger, hopefully we can finish higher than we did last year (seventh) and fight for the lead”
