For those of you who have not heard yet, Christian Schneider is looking for a ride this year, whether it be a full time ride for the whole season or filling in for someone who is unable to race on a certain weekend. He and his dad built all of his race cars, he's always run his own equipment and has had a lot of success. I will not go into detail on why they are not racing this year as it is a personal family matter, but even though his 2017 plans are up in the air, I can say... that he has not lost his passion and desire to pursue his dream. He is willing to do whatever it takes to get back into it, he knows it takes a full team effort and to be successful you have to put in the time and is willing to help work on the cars and do whatever is needed to be done, not just show up and drive. He is one of the most promising and talented young drivers out there and I will detail his accomplishments below for those of you who may be unfamiliar. He was also chosen last year by Chip Ganassi Racing as part of their Generation Ganassi mentorship program where he was to be paired up with one of their drivers to offer advice and guidance through his career and could have led to a major opportunity, an opportunity that was lost due to not being able to race this year and one that he really hopes to get back. If anyone is deserving of a chance to get back behind the wheel, it is Christian. If you or anyone you know of is looking for a driver this year you can contact him directly or you can contact me at 724-612-1321 and I will have him get in touch with you.
