Sarah Goad said, “Billy has a will to win and puts forth the effort both on and off the track to accomplish the high goals he has set for himself. It is refreshing to work with someone who is always prepared and responsive. He approaches his racing both as a professional athlete and a businessman.  We see this as a key element in team chemistry and are confident in the combined talents of the team. With Johnny’s years of experience and Billy’s work ethic it should make for an exciting combination. All this being said, we are looking forward to having fun.”
