Favorite Racing Moment Other than Winning the Rolex 24: “The 2008 Utah race. The No. 60 car had just won the prior race at New Jersey and had also won at Utah the year before. The car ran well all race, we had really good stops which helped to move us forward during the race and eventually take the win. It was a great team effort by the crew and the drivers.”
