Mentoring up-and-coming racers and crew members is something I have strived to do throughout my career and has always been very important to me. I see it as my way of giving back to a sport I have a tremendous passion for. I have former employees that are now working for championship-caliber teams and to see their success is a tremendous source of pride for me. Similar ideologies as well as the possible synergies and co-marketing opportunities with some of our other partners like Great Clips, Parts Plus and Valvoline make this an excellent platform for UNOH to maximize brand awareness among potential UNOH students."
