We had a handful of supporters step up to make this possible and I appreciate them as well. I am very much looking forward to driving the 12 car.”


“Being from California, I always look forward to getting out West and catching up with some fans that I don’t get to see as much as I would like to,” Ballou noted. “This year will be a little different, but I am nothing but confident in what we can do with  Dave in the seat.
