“After several years working in the pinnacle of our sport, I am excited to be able to contribute some of what I’ve learned to some other racing series and also to high-tech projects outside rushing.
“One of my personal passions is to mentor and grow young gift, and it will be a focal point for me to help attract and develop the upcoming generations of engineering talent at Dallara in years ahead.”
