He really wanted to have close races in a large and competitive field and Spec Miata was the perfect fit for that. His first time driving a car was in the VIR paddock the night before his first HPDE session.
Zach ran in NASA’s HPDE Program and Time Trial program up until 2016, and then in 2017 he acquired his NASA Competition license and began racing in Spec Miata and Teen Mazda Challenge.
In September of this year Zach became the director of Teen Mazda Challenge. He is also apart of Virginia Tech’s Formula SAE team.
