LOVE MOTORSPORTS TEAM
Love Motorsports' mission is to go as fast and as far as we can in auto sports. We insist on competing every week with a team-first approach to auto sports with an emphasis on ethics. We love to win, but if we don't do it fairly, within the rules, it’s not a win for us. We also place primary focus at every event upon our driver(s) and our team. If the driver won, but the team is at each other’s' throats, we are doing something wrong and it's not a “win” for us. We try to learn something every time we hit the track. We strive to improve every time we show up. We endeavor to be there for others as they have been there for us. We want to race the best and if someone needs help to get the car on the track, we try to give it to them. Win, lose or draw, we are grateful to be living our dream, every day, both on and off the track!
