After we signed Bex in 2018, she was coming off a prime ten season as a personal particular person. She had self-funded her season with a mixture of fundraisers, odd jobs, and true grit. She was his nutritionist, coach, mechanic and crew supervisor. We admired her willpower, and we have been excited to be provided a place on our manufacturing unit crew. In that first season, he made his first podium. Over the subsequent three years, she continued to work on her objectives with the identical willpower that originally attracted us to her.
