I have had a lot of people ask me why do racing drivers train as hard as they do in the gym, if all they have to do during a race is push the pedals, and turn a steering wheel.

Well, here is a great video to show you exactly how fit a racing driver has to be to compete at the highest level of the sport!

Unfortunately I won't be in Daytona this week for the #Rolex24 like I have been for the last few years.
However, it's great knowing the work I'm putting in now will leading to many possibilities in the years ahead!

Good luck to all drivers and crews, may the best team win in this very grueling and demanding endurance race. Stay safe everyone!

It doesn't look like much, but I can assure you, it sure is exciting!
I cannot officially confirm what I will be racing this year because there is still a lot of unknown variables, but I am working as hard as possible to make it happen. Take a look at the footwell and pedals for my 2015 ride. We need to make a few adjustments, but it is coming along!

Thank you for all the support! 2015 is going to be great year, filled with all new challenges!

What an event, what a season! The inaugural season of the IMSA Championship following a merger between Grand-Am and the ALMS series' had it's ups and downs, but overall I think the sanctioning body provided some good racing for the fans, and great ROI(Return On Investment) for the sponsors!
Work towards getting me in a full time seat for 2015 has already started, and it will be flat out until Daytona next year. Stay tuned! #MTR #PLM

It's official, we are the 2014 SARRC GTA Champions! It was a slim margin, 202 points, to Randy Sampson's 198 points. It has been an absolute honor competing with the other GTA drivers and teams this season!

Thanks to our season long parters NBC Bank, State Traditions, Birmingham Broker, and the Central Florida Community Banking Consortium for supporting our efforts this season! We're a championship winning race team, and we wouldn't have had this success without our loyal partners!

Unfortunately in racing sometimes things go your way and sometimes they don't. As my dad always said, sometimes you're the hammer and sometimes you're the nail. My Petit le Mans at Road Atlanta plans have taken a bit of a different turn but their is still some positive things on the horizon and the work never stops!
We are still looking for interested partners to come onboard for the event, please feel free to share this with your network and contact me with any questions! #MikeyTRacing
