It’s super — I keep saying exciting because that’s a theme of how I feel, but Patrick he has a lot of passion for what he does. He has a lot of passion for anything he dips his toes into. When he does it, he goes all the way. That’s what he’s done with his companies Leargas and Critical Path Security, and that’s how he plans to do it with racing. I’m just happy and blessed to be carrying his company’s name.”
