It is a fact that Garage 4 wants to win every race that we enter. We know we can win, however, there are other teams in this bracket both locally and regionally that expect to do the same. The action is intense. The drive to win has teams reinventing and tweaking every components in an effort to go to drop their ET’s lower.
Our crew is constantly looking for ways to make the car to produce more reliability, more grip, be stronger, launch harder, be quicker and easier to drive. Jason is totally psyched to give it his best and drive our current set up as fast as it can go. When the car rolls onto the grid, it projects months of committed efforts from each and every member of the team as well as friends and associates who all pull for the same goal, to win. Garage 4 has all of the key components to win combined with a reliable vehicle and excellent team support, there is nothing that can keep us away from pioneering the way forward..
