Received some good news yesterday. Possibility of good chance we will be back into racing within the next month.
Good things come to an end. I will no longer be driving for MPR motorsports as they are selling out. It was an honor and privelige to drive for them. What a great experience and excitement it was to race against the best of the best in the UMP class. I will not be racing the B-mod either. I will have to get used to being a race fan watching from the stands now. I want to think all my fans and the past sponsors that made this happen for me. You all are the best!
Sincerely, Nathan Schmitt
