Park Place Racing Places 6th at Sebring Twelve Hour

Despite a seasoned Sebring race team with both Patrick Long and Patrick Lindsey tracking multiple runs at this raceway,  the course provided some uncharacteristic challenges during the Mobile 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.  This was the fifth year for Patrick Lindsey, 16 show at Sebring for Patrick Long, and Nick Boulle’s debut  at Sebring’s Twelve Hour.


Round Two of the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship presented many issues for the No. 73 de Boulle Park Place Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 R. The team faced twelve hours of unknown mechanical gremlins causing misfires in the engine and smaller fuel load capacities. However, endurance driver Nick Boulle, Porsche Factory Driver Patrick Long and Team Principal Patrick Lindsey bested the odds and delivered an unscathed Porsche and a sixth-place finish. 

Prior to the race, the team’s drivers gave fans and track rats alike insights into their minds as Sebring approached. The Patrick’s of Park Place Racing gave us a couple different perspectives, priming fans for not just the race technique,  but the historical significance behind Sebring Raceway.

“I love the history; the bumps have a lot of stories to tell but in its roots as World War II Airbase where they trained men and women who went overseas,” comments Lindsey, “For us, it’s a long time racing here. It’s my 7th year at IMSA and it’s our 5th year at Sebring in the twelve hour.” 

Patrick Long, a well-known Porsche Factory driver and 16 time veteran at Sebring, shared his objectives for day to night race: “Survive the bumps,  survive the heat, and be there at the end.” 

Mechanical Issues: Still A Top 10 Finish

Lindsey, who finished third in Friday’s 1,000 of Sebring with the FIA World Endurance Championship, drove a majority of his Sebring Twelve Hours under green. Though the mechanical issue never fully dissolved, it did subside aiding in his ability to also keep the car within the top 10. The Park Place Motorsports drivers spent the majority of their race within the top of the field, only dropping out of it upon pit cycles. 
 
The finale of the race brought the only other sense of fracas. With 15 minutes remaining a car went off course bringing out a long-desired caution. Having previously pitted for service, all teams were ready for a fight to the finish after being packed up for a restart. With seven minutes outstanding, the field received the green. Long defied all statistic measures making the jump from eighth to sixth where he would defend until the finish. 

Final Thoughts

Patrick Lindsey, Team Principal and driver No. 73 de Boulle Porsche 

“This was the longest Sebring weekend and the toughest Sebring weekend I’ve ever had,” Lindsey said. “At the same time, this was also one of the most rewarding. We don’t typically have the best finishes at Sebring. I think sixth is one of our highest finishes. That’s a testament to all the hard work this team is putting into our program. They’ve all taken ownership of their work and this team. We succeed and fail together. Right now, it feels like we’re only succeeding. We really pushed through some trials today and survived another wet race.”

Nick Boulle, Driver No. 73 de Boulle Porsche

This was my first time driving in the 12 Hours of Sebring, so it was very special to me,” Boulle said. “I was disappointed with my qualifying result, but thankfully we were able to resolve those issues before the race. Even in the rain, I could feel how much better the car was. I’m pretty confident in the wet, and we were able to gain a few positions at the start of the race, so that was exciting. My second stint was in the dry, and it was the best I felt in the car all weekend. The car was so drivable. The car was rewarding to drive, and you could trust it. I’m excited for the rest of the season and seeing what more we can do with the car.”

Patrick Long, Driver No. 73 de Boulle Porsche 

“I was pleased with the balance of the car for the entire race,” Long said. “We unloaded really strong this weekend and went up from there. Unfortunately, we had a few unforeseen challenges in the race that meant we were offset with our strategy and had to take an extra stop at the end. This caused us to fall to the tail end of the lead lap, so I had to battle through the field after that restart with seven minutes remaining. We were able to pass a few cars and battle up to sixth. It’s ironic how racing is, somedays a sixth-place feels like a podium and tonight that was the case. I’m really proud of the Park Place Motorsport guys for sticking with it even when it didn’t look promising. They worked nonstop for twelve hours and never gave up.”

Park Place Motorsports: Bringing Porsche Track Performance To You

Blending Luxury Cars and High-Performance Experiences for a Partnership that Just Makes Sense.

Park Place Motorsports is the arm of Park Place Porsche and Porsche Grapevine that embodies the racing spirit and pedigree built by the Porsche brand.  In 2013, Park Place teamed up with Porsche Motorsports as the official sponsor of a Porsche Motorsports team led by Team Principal, Patrick Lindsey. 

As one of DFW’s leading automotive dealers of both the luxury vehicles and high-performance experiences, putting the Park Place name on the track was and still is a natural extension of the Park Place brand.

So, What Is Park Place Motorsports Exactly?

Park Place Motorsports is a professional Porsche race team which not only focuses on professional track performance, but focuses on building a client racing program through driver advancement and trackside support initiatives. So really, a major part of this partnership is to not just to provide you, our clients and Park Place followers, with a team to cheer on during FIA or IMSA events, but also with specific ways to enhance your ownership experiences with professional track expertise and support. 

The Race Roster frequently sees updates and changes depending on the challenge ahead, but three consistent faces of Park Place Motorsports include team Principal Patrick Lindsey at the helm, with Patrick Long, an icon in the Porsche space, and Nick Boulle, a Texas resident and prominent member of the Dallas-Fort Worth community. 

The partnership between Park Place Dealerships began more than 5 years ago. It’s been a successful past year with multiple podium worthy track weekends and the opening of Park Place’s second Porsche dealership in Grapevine. To top off track success and dealership growth, the Park Place racing team relocated this past year to Dallas after opening a new shop just down the street from Park Place Porsche Dallas.

Porsche Artistry and Intelligent Performance

Park Place Motorsports and Park Place Porsche mirror the utter artistry and intelligence performance embodied by the Porsche brand.  The Park Place team currently races the iconic 911 RSR, GT3 R, Cayman GT4, and GT3 Cup in both FIA and IMSA sanctioned competition. 

Park Place’s positive reputation and strong relationship with Porsche Cars North America, is key to the success of this relationship.

“Park Place has given us an invaluable relationship that allows the race team to execute at a level of excellence that makes us stand out in the race paddocks,” says Lindsay Lindsey, representative for Park Place Motorsports. “Series, drivers, and teams equate our name with a well-run, well-groomed team. When others compete against us, they know they are racing a tough rival. When a competitor seeks us out to join our team, they know they’re joining a program that will care for them and challenge their skill level.”

A My Place Moment for Patrick Lindsey

The iconic #73 has seen some showroom and service action at both the Dallas and Grapevine dealerships, but what brings this sponsorship full circle is the relationship our Park Place Porsche team members have cultivated with our racing team.

Patrick Lindsey, team Principal, is one of the strongest connections to Park Place, not just because of the name on his racing suit, but also because he’s chosen Park Place Porsche for his day-to-day ownership experiences.

“…. the Park Place team takes extra care in the way they handle client and car service from the moment I hit the service drive to the moment I leave- and even after with their follow up and attention to detail,” says Lindsey, “We have definitely borrowed some valuable lessons from watching the way Park Place Porsche builds corporate pride within its members and the way we do the same within our competitive, professional race team that represents the Park Place namesake.”

Park Place Racing Owns COTA For the Overall and Class Win in Austin.


AUSTIN, Texas (March 3, 2019) – Park Place Motorsports took home first place overall in Race Two and second place overall in Race One at Circuit of the Americas for round one and two of SRO Pirelli GT4 America race action. The overall win is the team’s first victory at its home track since inception in 2013.
 
Drivers of the No. 77 VOLT Lighting Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR Alan Brynjolfsson and Trent Hindman led 11 of 23 laps in the GT4 America series for the overall win in Round Two and bounced back from an early spin due to on-track drama in Race One to finish second overall. In addition to conquering the GT4 series, Brynjolfsson and Hindman dominated the Pirelli GT4 America EAST, running in the EPro-Am class. Together they took home first in Round One and Round Two.
 
Stacking up a record of firsts, Park Place Motorsports’ overall win in Round Two was Brynjolfsson’s first win as the closing driver a professional race. A personal best leads Brynjolfsson into round three and four on the streets of St. Petersburg, Florida- his home race. He will carry confidence in machinery and team into the next weekend with his first solo appearance of the 2019 season in the Pirelli GT4 America Sprint series. 
 
The Grand Prix of St. Petersburg weekend kicks off Friday, March 8 with practice sessions taking place at 9:05 a.m. and 3:20 p.m. ET.

Park Place Motorsports Weekend Quotes
 
Alan Brynjolfsson, Driver of the No. 77 VOLT Lighting Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR
“Before I even started I was confident Trent would hand me the car in first place with 25 minutes to go,” Brynjolfsson said. “Sure enough the wonder boy did it and handed it to me in the lead. I had a pair of big shoes to fill but I did my best and we were able to win it. Really proud of the work our guys did this weekend.”

Trent Hindman, Driver of the No. 77 VOLT Lighting Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR
“I went into Race Two not wanting to start from fourth because I knew we had a better car for qualifying,” Hindman said. “I knew it would come down to me being aggressive on the start especially because yesterday everyone shot into Turn One on the inside. I braked a bit later into the turn and pass two people on the outside and then make a pass for the lead later in the lap. The conditions were quite different than yesterday so I had to dial in the ABS and brake bias which caused me to lose a position. Once we had a restart I knew it was extremely important that I get the lead and pull a gap.

“It took me a bit longer than I wanted to get the lead but ultimately I was able to achieve it and create a gap. Our pit stop was perfect so then it came down to Alan maintain what we had and bring it home for the win. He really has come such a long way in a year and this is proof of that and proof of what a great program Park Place Motorsports has put together.”

Park Place Motorsports Team Principal, Patrick Lindsey
“The best weekends are weekends you win so I’d have to say we had the best opening weekend we could ask for at COTA,” Lindsey said. “I’m really proud of Alan, Trent and the whole crew. They’re really pushing out there to get the job done and do it right. On top of it all, they’re doing these three race weekends in a row. It’s incredible the fight our guys have, I wish I could be there to celebrate with them all. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens in St. Pete. Going in as the leader puts a little more pressure on the weekend but there’s no place, you’d rather be than on top of the leader board.”

Racing Jargon: Things to Know Before Watching Park Place Racing Compete

Park Place Motorsports (Park Place Racing) are gearing up for another race weekend in Florida come March: the Super Sebring.  As their sponsor (and might we suggest their number one fan too), we thought it appropriate to share some of their race lingo so that all Park Place members, especially those new to the racing circuit, can expertly cheer on their very own Motorsports team.

First Off, the Cars:

IMSA WeatherTech Championship GTD: The No. 73 in GTD is referred to as the No. 73 Park Place Motorsports Porsche for all races except the Sebring 12 Hour, the Watkins Six Hour and the Petit Le Mans in which it will be referred to as the No. 73 de Boulle Park Place Motorsports Porsche.

IMSA MICHELIN Pilot Challenge GS: The No. 7 is referred to as the No. 7 VOLT Lighting Porsche.

Track Terms:

Safety Car: Also known as a pace car, it is a car which limits the speed of competing cars on a racetrack in the case of a caution period such as an obstruction on the track or bad weather.

Pitlane: Pitlane is an access road for getting on and off the track usually parallel to the front straight. Teams are each granted a spot on the pitlane used to service the car during a pitstop.

Paddock: A large open area here the team sets up their workspace. The paddock houses everything from the sanctioning body trailers to hospitality areas.

Technical Inspection (Tech): Tech is located in the paddock and run by the sanctioning body. Each car mush go through this inspection in order to make sure

Pass Around: Always performed under a full course caution, a pass around is awarded to cars not on the lead lap. It allows them to drive around the field and the safety car, gaining back one single lap.

Pit Stop: When a car enters the pitlane to be serviced. This includes taking on fuel, changing the tires or changing the driver. Multiple pit stops will be performed throughout the race.

Debrief: Following a driver’s stint they will all with the engineer to discuss the car. This includes talking about how the car performs on track, track conditions, and possible changes they feel should be made.

Morning Warm-Up: A 20-minute practice the morning before a race. This allows the drivers and teams to test out any last-minute changes and to get acquainted to that days track conditions.

Qualifying: A 15-minute session in which drivers compete to see who can achieve the fastest. This determines where the drivers will start the race from.

Kinds of Flags (and What They Mean):

Green Flag: Signals the start of the race or a restart.

Full Course Yellow (FCY): Signals an incident on course. Cars must assume safety car speed and fall in line behind the safety car. Competitors may not race or pass for position under a FCY.

Local Yellow: Signals a minor incident or piece of debris on course. Cars must only reduce speed through the turn in which the flag is flown. Upon exiting the turn, they may resume full speed racing.

Rolled up Black Flag: Signals an issue related to you or your car. This represents a warning. If you do not correct the issue you will be issued a penalty.

Black Flag: Signals you are receiving a penalty and should head to the pits. This is issued in accordance following a rolled up black flag.

Red Flag: Signals for all cars to assume safety car speed and head into the pits. A red flag stops the race, but does not stop the running clock. Red flags are most often thrown for weather conditions or severe on-track incidents.

Checkered Flag: Signals the end of the race.

 


Hopefully this helps you prep for the Super Sebring races mid March. If we missed any terms or you have any questions, send them to social@parkplace.com. We’ll get our experts (like Team Principal, Patrick Lindsey) to help us respond.

Race Recap: Park Place Takes Eighth After Daytona Ends Red

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Jan. 27, 2019) – Park Place Motorsports survived error and flood to finish eighth at the Rolex 24 At Daytona giving the team its highest finish in the twice-around-the-clock classic.


Park Place Motorsports overcame a flooded Daytona International Raceway after gaining back three laps lost to a runaway left rear tire. The No. 73 de Boulle Porsche 911 GT3 R led its way around the 3.56-mile track as the race neared its final two hours. In those hours Park Place Motorsports pitted in hopes to come out ahead and with the proper fuel to go the distance and for the win. However, before the pit sequence began a red flag was thrown due to inclement conditions on track. The 57th running of the Rolex 24 At Daytona finished under red.

Porsche Factory Driver Patrick Long and Porsche Young Professional Matt Campbell spent the majority of their time in the car searching for any sign of grip on the track in the final hours of the race. A combination of oil and water sent multiple competitors off track, into walls and each other. Long nearly escaped a multicar pileup, maneuvering the No. 73 through turns 10 and 11. Campbell steered clear of any on-track drama and made his way to the front of the field, leading until a pit stop and the final red flag shuffled him to eighth.

Endurance driver Nick Boulle and Team Principal Patrick Lindsey handled a majority of the driving Saturday and Saturday night. The race compiled 18 full-course cautions In total, nine of which Lindsey and Boulle endured over the course of their stint. Both drivers kept the No. 73 de Boulle Porsche clean and turning consistent lap times while fighting to earn laps back.

The No. 73 had been running in the lead after nightfall when Campbell lost a tire. He nursed the car back to pitlane where the crew quickly solved the issue and sent Campbell back out. He resumed the race three laps down. Lindsey and Boulle benefited from pass arounds during the many cautions featured throughout their runs. Steady laps by each driver as well as strategy from pit lane aided in Park Place Motorsports returning to the lead lap and then to the lead of the GT Daytona class.

Park Place Motorsports next race is at Sebring International Raceway for the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring presented by Advanced Auto Parts. The weekend is part of a Super Sebring weekend featuring the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and FIA World Endurance Championship on the same weekend. Patrick Lindsey will race in both the traditional 12-hour race Saturday, March 16 with Park Place Motorsports and the FIA 1,000 miles of Sebring Friday, March 15 with Project 1 supported by Park Place Motorsports.

Mathew Campbell

“This race is all about timing and being in the right place at the right time,” Campbell said. “Some things didn’t go our way like the pit stop and the wheel problem, but we were able to make it back. We had really great car speed which really showed at the end of the race in the wet conditions.

“It was really unfortunate that we ended under red and weren’t able to push for a win but at the end of the day we still were able to finish the race and gain points for the team. Everything went well, we didn’t damage the car and stayed on track but it’s rough to think about what could have been.”

Patrick Long

“Timing is everything in motorsport and today it didn’t fall our way,” Long said. “The team executed a perfect race and in the end the stoppage of rain bit us, but we’re not the only ones who feel that way. We need to be happy that we got good points and had a good start to the season. I know from experience that you have to put consistent points on the board at the start of the year. I’m grateful to our partners who are here and cheering us on. We will push on to Sebring with our heads held high.”

Nick Boulle

“This race is so competitive from the moment you get in for your first stint,” Boulle said. “The first time I got in the car it was immediately a sprint. When I got back in for my second stint, I was faced with class traffic as well as trying to maintain the lead. The car had great pace and the crew did a clean job in the pits. We’ve got a really great foundation to build on moving forward. It obviously is heartbreaking to pit from the lead and lose out on winning the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona but it’s a big year and we just need to focus forward now. I’m looking forward to the 12 Hours of Sebring and seeing what we can do.”

Patrick Lindsey

“We could say what if, but you can’t predict everything so I’m really happy with how today went,” Lindsey said. “This was our best run at Daytona. The team executed really well, we had no penalties. All the drivers held there own out there. Pat, Matt and Nick all did really well. Everyone was on it. We’re entering the next race with good points and in the bigger picture that is what matters. I’m excited to see what this team builds.”

From the Track: Park Place Finishes as Top Porsche in Round One of MICHELIN Pilot Challenge

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Jan. 25, 2019) – Park Place Motorsports completed its first round of IMSA MICHELIN Pilot Challenge action at Daytona International Speedway finishing seventh in the GS class with the No. 7 VOLT® Lighting Porsche Cayman GT4.

The Michelin Pilot Challenge began the year with both action and drama. In 20 minutes, Driver and sponsor Alan Brynjolfsson with codriver Trent Hindman negotiated a seventh-place finish charging to the front of the field from the 19th position. The Porsche Cayman GT4 was running second in the final hour of the race but served a drive through penalty for a premature restart. The team initially debated the penalty with race control as no position was gained after following the overall leader at the green flag.

Hindman began the race from fifth after qualifying sixth due to a competing McLaren receiving a penalty after tech inspection. At the start he made his way from fifth to third easily. Hindman spent his first stint trading paint within the GS class and maintained position within the top five of the field. Hindman took over for Brynjolfsson to finish the race advancing to podium position prior to the penalty all while avoiding crash damage from incidents happening around him.

“The Volt Racing Park Place Motorsports guys did a great job preparing this brand-new 718 Porsche GT4,” Hindman said. “It was fast straight from the Roar, we were fast all weekend. There were some cars that flew under the radar, but we played that game as honestly as we could. We knew he had good performance going into this race and we really started taking advantage of that with two hours.

“The race was playing out like a typical Mike Johnson strategy, but ultimately a call was made that I jumped the restart and I had to do a drive through. Of course, I’m going to disagree with it, but it is what it is. I’ll have to go back and re-watch it to see where exactly I went wrong, but I was still happy to walk away with minor scrapes on the car. It was wild out there from the drop of the green and it just got more intense as time went on. For us to walk away with a car in one piece, a car that’s strong for Sebring and a car that finished seventh I think it really shows what type of a quality operation this is. I think we’re in a good position to fight for a championship this year.”

Brynjolfsson kept the car clean while dogging incident through his stint as well, the race featured nine yellow flags in total. After taking over for Hindman, Brynjolfsson maintained eighth position overall outdriving his Porsche counterparts. A long yellow flag restricted Brynjolfsson from advancing further into the field though he kept the car within striking distance of a win.

“The car was great,” Brynjolfsson said. “We had no problems or attrition out there mechanically or with our competitors. We finished as the number one Porsche so I’m not sure there’s more we could ask for there. Trent had the car in second place before the penalty, which we’re still unclear on. Even with the drive through we were able to finish seventh. This is my third year in a GT4, and this is the most fun and consistent car I’ve driven yet so I’m really looking forward to the rest of the season.”


To Brynjolfssons’s word Park Place Motorsports finishes Race One of the Michelin Pilot Challenge as the highest finishing Porsche. Relive the action from the Endurance Challenge At Daytona Wednesday, Feb. 6 on NBCSN. The series returns for Round Two at Sebring International Raceway March 13-16 for the Alan Jay Automotive Network 120 at Sebring. For a detailed schedule visit http://imsa.com.

Park Place Racing Update: Le Mans Winner Campbell Joins Park Place for Rolex 24

Park Place Motorsports adds Porsche Young Professional and Le Mans winner Matt Campbell to its Rolex 24 At Daytona lineup that includes Patrick Lindsey, Patrick Long and Nick Boulle running the No. 73 Porsche GT3 R.

Campbell, Australia, became part of the Porsche Factory Driver lineup in 2017 as a Porsche Junior. In his debut at the 24 Hours of Le Mans Campbell took home Porsche’s 107thclass win with Dempsey Proton Racing in the GTE-Am category. The Rolex 24 At Daytona will be Campbell’s shot to prove it was talent, not luck that earned him a trophy on the world’s largest stage for endurance racing.

Of course, his pedigree of winning championship after championship should be enough to impress any critic. He has won a championship every year since 2011. Campbell won the 2016 Porsche Carrera Cup Australia, 2015 Australian GT Championship, 2014 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Australia (B Class), 2014 Australian GT Championship, 2012 Queensland Formula Ford Championship and is a two-time winner of the Queensland Super Sprint Series (2013 and 2011).

Park Place Motorsports warmly welcomes Campbell’s talent and fight. A GT Daytona win at Daytona International Speedway has long eluded the No. 73 Park Place Porsche. This years’ effort seems as poised as any with the return of Porsche Factory Driver Patrick Long and the addition of the all-new Porsche 911 GT3 R. Long and teammate Nick Boulle will be on standby to give tips on how to charm the Daytona International Speedway. Long won the race in 2009 and Boulle more recently in 2017.

Team Principal Patrick Lindsey, on the other hand, is willing to take tips from Campbell.

“He’s so young but has already seen so much success,” Lindsey said. “It is honestly impressive. I can’t wait to sit back and watch him work. I’ll actually root for him this time, at Le Mans I ran against him so I couldn’t be too impressed. I know I have more experience at Daytona but I’m wanting a little Campbell sheen to rub off on me. He’s really talented and successful, I’d love to have his resume. I really hope for the best so we can add to that resume and he can go home with a Rolex.”

The Roar Before the Rolex 24 is Campbell’s first trip to the United States, making Daytona his first foray into North American racing.

“I’m very much looking forward to my first trip to the United States,” Campbell said. “I’ve driven on banking before but certainly not to the extent of the Daytona banking, so I’m sure it will be quite the eye-opener for the first time.

“To get my first Daytona under my belt is certainly invaluable, I think in endurance racing no matter of your results in the past, each 24-hour race is a new challenge. But I feel like I’ve gained great experience in the last year with endurance racing and my approach going into such races. I’m excited to work with the team. I come in with an open mind having enjoyed working with Longy in previous years.”

Campbell will be available for interview upon request at the Roar Before the Rolex 24. Park Place Motorsports prepares for the start of the 2019 season Jan. 4-6 at Daytona International Speedways as part of the test weekend. The season kicks off with the Rolex 24 At Daytona Jan. 26-27, broadcast live on NBC. For schedule, details visit http://imsa.com or visit http://parkplacemotorsports.com for more team information.

Park Place Racing Update: The Patrick Plan- Park Place Motorsports in 2019

Park Place Motorsports rejoins IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship in 2019 with a full season GT Daytona class entry featuring Team Principal Patrick Lindsey and Porsche Factory Driver Patrick Long.

Lindsey and Long previously ran together in 2013 under the newly formed Park Place Motorsports banner. Then running the No. 73 in the Grand-Am Rolex GT series. The duo scored multiple top-five finishes and three, second-place finishes resulting in a fifth-place finish in the championship.

Years of experience later, Lindsey and Long are after the same goal, to win a driver and team championship together. Together they will take to the fight armed with the new Porsche 911 GT3 R for the 2019 IMSA season. The new GT3 R is a 911 through and through but with favorable upgrades focused on making the car driver and pit stop friendly.

“I’m extremely excited for our team this year,” Lindsey said. “We’re growing as a team, and we have the full support of Porsche Motorsport North America to chase a championship. We’re pursuing a lot this year. We’re running two new cars with the new GT3 R in WeatherTech and GT4 in the Michelin series. We’re hoping to run Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA for the second year.

“Park Place is a great team and I enjoy working with them,” Long said. “They’re a group of very determined people with tremendous talent. We had some memorable moments when we last raced together, but I’m hoping we can build on those accomplishments this coming year. They’ve made great changes and additions during the offseason to the team which I’m sure will pay off during the season. I’m happy to be back with Patrick; he’s a great a teammate. Hopefully, we can make some magic happen this year.”
