I always look forward to Circuit of The Americas. Being that it’s less than two hours from home, I consider it to be my “home track.”

I’ve been driving on the circuit since it opened in 2012, and actually, I was a part of the grand opening. The track is like no other that we drive on in our Pirelli World Challenge championship, which makes it a unique challenge, setup and driving wise, to tackle.

Before I get too far into my column I would like to say a few things on the storm that affected my hometown of Houston just the week prior.

My family was fortunate enough to stay dry through the storm; I’ve been back at Clemson since classes just started so I luckily missed the brunt of the storm. Unfortunately, the floods have affected thousands in the Houston community.

The best part about being from Houston is the strength of the community.
