Yep. Congrats.

And just a reminder - Canadians, Mexicans, Dominicans, Cubans, Guatamalans, and lots of other people from Central America, then also Koreans and Japanese are people too.. )

He is the 2010 RC Pro National Buggy Champion. Pretty fast guy in the States and was racing for XRAY RCAMERICA for the last 5 years. He only re-signed with them again back in Feb of this year. So there must of been a falling out to jump ships so soon after a re-signing and long term relationship.

How will he do at a World level? Who knows, time will tell.

Personally I think Agama's biggest young talent comes from France that goes by the name of Jonathan Barco. This kid is fast. If he sticks with Agama don't be surprised to see him with a good showing at next years Worlds. He recently came 3rd at the Coupe de France beating Sartel who is supposed to be the fastest Agama guy. I don't think Barco raced at the recent Euros? He is the current Euro B Champion.

A lot of very fast "World Class" guys he beat there that were in the A-main of the Euros only a few weeks ago.

Keep an eye out for this kid.

Congrats JB.....He will prove to everyone why Gene and Andy have picked him to be a part of the Team. To be a world class driver doesn't mean you have to be known across the globe it means you need to carry yourself in the highest manner and be able to step up at the big races when it counts. Some of you might not have heard of him before but now that he has signed with Agama you know his name now and that is a step in the right direction for him and the Team. I think he will do great with the tools that are provided and we will see great thing to come of this.
