How and why did you first get into SuperStock racing?
I ran into a SuperStock display they had set up at the Miami Boat Show back when the series first came to the US. I thought it was a great format and was intrigued with the series back then. It would be several years later when the opportunity came to get involved and race in the Visit Jacksonville boat. Growing up here in Jacksonville and my love and experience for boat racing made it a great fit and I jumped at the opportunity.
You have some collected some great memories in SuperStock since you started in 2015, what were the key points you learnt in the first two years of competing which helped you in 2017?
We have definitely had our share of learning experiences. I would say the key points would be learning how to set up and how the P1 Panther handles and reacts in various conditions, as well as learning how the competition reacts. All of this is something that comes with more seat time and we are always learning.
When we last spoke you mentioned about focusing on “capitalizing on the things that worked for us and correcting the things that did not.” Can you go into a bit more detail about what you feel were successes for you and Brian, and which aspects you’re are focused on improving?
This was our first time together as a team and I feel like we really worked well together. We had some great races and successes. But, its always an ongoing process of learning more about the boat, the set up with these new motors, and strategies before and during races. I think we worked out a lot of the kinks throughout this season and our goal moving forward is to focus on being consistent. We will continue to learn and improve as we go into 2018 and spend more time on the track.
