Driving a race car is something I've dreamt about doing since I drove my first bumper car in Coney Island in Brooklyn, NY. I have yet to drive on a track, although I did get a tour of the Daytona 500 and got on the track with a tour. The closest I've come this far was touching Dakota's car.
Today's episode is an interview I had with Dakota Dickerson. He's one of the youngest drivers currently racing in the 2016 Cooper Tires USF 2000 Series powered by Mazda.
Dakota and I met during the kick-off party of the St. Petersburg Grand Prix. He and his dad Ken were gracious enough to give me an interview.
I was so impressed with Dakota, he is so mature, so ahead of the curve and knows what he wants out of life.
Dakota has formerly raced in the 201 Skip Barber Summer Series and Spec Miata with SCCA and NASA. His sponsors are: Mazda Motorsports, Team USA Scholarship, Skip Barber Racing School, Molecule Sports, Crow Enterprizes and RM Autosport.
Some of his career highlights include the 2015 Skip Barber - USF2000 Mazda Motorsports Scholarship Champion.
