First I want to congratulate my pal Andris Laivins on his new gig. He was hired as crew chief on the Speedsource #69 Rolex GT car for 2011.

Second, I want to challenge him to visit here and post some of those world famous race recaps like he use to do at Tri-Point. Otherwise, I will have to post for you Andris and we know how that would work.

Tid-bit on Andris, via phone and emails this year he used Weblaps.com on occasion to help me with the Mustang shocks.

Wishing you many successes crew chief!

Hey!

Thanks Jim. I'm obviously pretty excited, but they are big shoes to fill. The #69 just won the championship and the expectations are appropriately high. Luckily, the rest of the #69 crew is staying with the car, and every one of them is top-notch. The best thing I can do is just make sure all the guys keep doing the great job they have been doing for the last couple of years.

I'm not doing PR/race reports with this gig like at Tri-Point, but I'm happy to provide any insight I can as the season gets going.

Happy New Year and see y'all at Daytona!

Andris

PS: Sorry it took so long to dig out of my inbox and get over here.

Everyone, this is a very nice team and approachable, if at Daytona or other racers just go and introduce yourself. They will show you around, true Mazda family here.
