    Why is C.J.'s slogan "Throw Strikes"?

    In 2010, a friend of C.J.'s overhead a fan yelling "Throw Strikes" from the stands.  The phrase stuck and became a constant reminder to work hard and keep things simple.  The slogan is now a good luck charm for C.J., his friends and fans.

    What is hemophilia?

    Hemophilia (heem-o-FILL-ee-ah) is a rare bleeding disorder in which the blood doesn't clot normally. If you have hemophilia, you may bleed for a longer time than others after an injury. You also may bleed inside your body (internally), especially in your knees, ankles, and elbows. This bleeding can damage your organs and tissues and may be life threatening.

    What kind of racing does the team participate in?

    The team started out in 2011 in the SCCA Playboy Mazda MX-5 Cup, which is an entry level professional series using identically prepared Mazda MX-5 Miatas. The aim is to showcase driver talent in identically prepared cars. For 2012, the team will field 5 cars in that series, while also adding the Grand Am Continental Tire Sports Car Championship ST class to the lineup. This series pits the same Mazda MX-5 Miatas against the best from all other manufacturers in a 2.5hr endurance format. With future ambitions in the Grand Am Rolex and ALMS endurance sports cars series' this stepping stone helps the team prepare for those future endeavors. www.mx-5cup.comwww.grand-am.com

    Why does the team race Mazdas?"

    Mazda is a very grassroots driven company, where on any given weekend, more Mazdas are being raced at the amateur tracks all around the country than all other brands combined. C.J.'s grassroots trip through the baseball ranks, and that hard work attitude sit well with Mazda and vice versa. C.J. shares many philosophies with the brand, including most importantly the Zoom Zoom idea! www.mazdausa.com

    Does C.J. drive in the races himself?

    No, with C.J.'s baseball commitments, he is unable to compete directly, although he uses a simulator in the off season to practice. C.J. has competed in sports car races in the past, and has great talent behind the wheel. Jason Saini, part owner of the race team, has been racing professionally for 7 years, and is the team's lead driver. Supporting Jason and the team's other drivers is a talented team of engineers, crew, and mechanics.

    What are the racing team's goals?

    Ultimately, the goal is to compete for a win in a class at the LeMans 24hr race, but that is a very challenging prospect. In the meantime, the goal is to excel at each level we compete in so that eventually we will be prepared to take on the challenge.
