After much consideration, I have decided to not return as the driver of the U-1 Miss Madison for the 2016 H1 Unlimited racing season. Please note that this decision in no way reflects my feelings for my team and of the great city of Madison, IN.
I wish the team all the best in 2016 and beyond. In my two years with the team we accomplished a lot that I am very proud of and I am truly grateful for everyone who assisted and made these accomplishments possible. I hope that while my decision is disappointing to a lot of people that you can try to understand I need to do what is best for myself and my family.
Boat racing has been my greatest passion since I was very young. I am very proud of my unlimited career and thankful to those who helped me accomplish all that I have in such a short period of time. While I hope this is not the end and I eventually get a shot in another unlimited, it has been a great ride and I thank you for all of your support and encouragement along the way.
