Mazda is on fire!! Being the brand to beat in 2014, Mazda really has taken off this past 2 years and the future is bright. Being recognized by J.D. Power as the most improved Non-Premium brand.
“One of the main principles in our DNA is ‘Kaizen’, which is a Japanese term that means ‘continuous improvement through wisdom and ingenuity,’ said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO, MNAO. “Mazda’s improvement in this year’s 2014 J.D. Power APEAL study shows that our continued focus on improving vehicles through ongoing evaluations and customer feedback is changing their opinion of the brand, and for the better.

Miami FARA Sunset 300
Man, this weekend was awesome! Jeremy Klein and I qualified the Mazda Miata SpeedWorks Racing third place in our class for the FARA Sunset 300 at the Miami- Homestead Speedway.
When I went to the grid, I couldn’t believe how many fans came out to support me and wanted my Hero Card (a card that has a mini biography of the racer and the names of their sponsors) autographed!
The race lasted from 6-10pm. I started it by driving the first part (2 ½ hrs.) and Jeremy finished the remainder. By the time I reached turn one, I was in first place. Since we started behind the “big bore cars” (faster cars), I had to carefully weave my way through them in the turns since my car didn’t have as much horsepower as them.
As the race continued, the big bore cars started to pull away on the straights, stretching the gap because of their motors. With a little help of double yellows, I started to pull a lap and a half lead. As I passed the car off to my teammate, we were a lap ahead of everyone else! Jeremy held our position strong but unfortunately we got a double yellow when the pace car got in front of us and gave the driver in 2nd place a chance to catch up with 30 minutes left in the race. In the end, the other team passed us and took the win (congrats to them) and we took 2nd in our class and 15th out of 60+ cars total!

Sunday, May 25th, I had the pleasure of getting to know an aspiring driver, Ethan Low. Ethan competed in the ChumpCar Sunday, May 25th with Dan Partelo Race Team called RentThisRaceCar.com and I had the pleasure of getting to know Ethan at the Chump World Series at Daytona International Speedway. This is just a small mark on his list of races as he has been in competition since age 11 and in over 100 competitions total. Ethan began karting as a fun, bonding activity with his father, Kevin Low. He is currently a high school student in Clearwater, Florida. He, like many young drivers, feels torn between school and driving. His heart truly lies behind a six-point harness but he feels the societal push of college and a corporate career. However, Ethan displays a tremendous amount of optimism regarding his professional driving career. In discussions with him, it was crystal clear that he understands just how few drivers end up going pro.
For Ethan though, it’s about the perfection he finds in driving. “It’s the perfection that drives me, it’s doing it exactly perfect that I really, really enjoy.” Watching Ethan on the track makes it all seem so easy. His cornering is just beautiful, attacking every entry and gaining perfect momentum. The highbanks at DIS are no joke, yet Ethan took every opportunity to utilize them. He continually proved his ability to find holes and fill them. In his second stint, there was a thirty second gap between him and the next position. Ethan gained that position in a matter of three laps. That’s a gap that would take other drivers between five and fifteen laps to close. In the following lap, Ethan proceeded to gain three more positions. It is obvious that Ethan Low has tremendous ability as a driver. He sees things differently than everyone else, he can see a hole as soon as it opens and has been reported to scare other drivers because he fills holes in less time than it takes other drivers to realize they’re even there.
Some other Fast Facts about Ethan Low.
– Went to the shop every day, walked from Clearwater to St. Pete if he had to, after school to do anything he could (polishing wheels, sweeping floors, etc.) to get seat time and lessons.
– “The real value of doing something is to be really good at it, if you’re the best at it, everyone’s going to want you to do it…”
– Continental next season is his goal
– Superstition/habit: Even when he gets taken out of a stint, and is told he isn’t going back in, he keeps his suit on because he wants to be ready just in case…it shows that he anticipates going back in and usually he ends up going back in.
– NEEDS MONEEYYYY to keep racing! Sponsors?
