BRETT SANDBERG, DRIVER OF THE No. 18 ZORO RACING PORSCHE: “I raced for TruSpeed in 2013 for an entire season of GT3 Cup. Through that, I met Phil Fogg and we raced as teammates together for a part of that season. I have a very good relationship with both Phil and Tyler (Tadevic) of TruSpeed. Road America is one of my favorite tracks in North America because it is one that tests the driver and mind. Consistency means everything there. The driver’s mind and physical abilities are truly tested at Road America and stringing a lap together takes full concentration. It is awesome that this is Zoro’s home track and I am keen to make a good impression on them and give the best result possible for the brand.”
