A few weeks back during the #NitroWorldGames, @FordPerformance loaned me the all-new Edge ST to drive back and forth from my shop in Park City, Utah, down to the event, since it was basically in my “backyard!” Definitely a fun way to commute and definitely a fun event. Check the recap video by hitting the link in my bio. #EdgeST #linkinbio #practicalperformance

I really love the current generation of the WRC racecars - especially this championship winning Ford Fiesta WRC built by M-Sport. The aero is amazing, the engine performance and drivetrain is incredible, and the on-stage performance is beyond my expectations. Big thanks to Ford and M-Sport for the opportunity to test and race this beast! Oh, and thanks again for the use of the racecar earlier this year for #GymkhanaTEN! #rallybeast #FordFiestaWRC #WRCSpain @msportltd @FordPerformance

Stoked to be back in the racecar with this guy: @AlexGelsomino. We have only done two rallies together this year, and that resulted in a 3rd overall in the Cossie at Oregon Trail Rally, and of course the infamous crash/fire at New England Forest Rally (whilst we were running 3rd overall there). The two day test went well for us both and now we prepare for #WRCSpain. #FordFiestaWRC

Reality Check: I am stoked to be going to race #WRCSpain, but I want to be very up-front with the fact that there’s simply no way I will be competitive having logged only two days of testing—and that’s OK! I haven’t raced in the WRC since 2014, and I've only completed one rally the past couple of years (been a bit busy with rallycross 🤷‍♂️) — so, my goal is to go enjoy the epic Spanish roads, learn the newest generation of Ford Fiesta WRC car, and do the best I can. But so we’re all clear, in no way do I think I have a chance at being competitive with the best rally drivers on the planet. It’s a dream chance that I even have this opportunity to race in the top-level Ford Fiesta and I'm going to enjoy it as much as I possibly can! #realisticexpectations #justwannabeupfrontwithyou #FordFiestWRC

It always surprises me how many dedicated fans come out to spectate tests here in Europe. It’s really rad, actually. The tests are usually fairly secret, but word gets out somehow. Rad to see the 100+ people out on the test stages the last couple of days! #hardtohidethiscarsnoise #FordFiestaWRC #WRCSpain

This photo exemplifies why I love the rally roads here in Spain so much. Fun twisty roads, great tarmac with lots of grip, and really fun hairpins - all set in a beautiful countryside. #hairpinsandhandbrakes #FordFiestaWRC #WRCSpain

One of my favorite things about #WRCSpain: I get to race on both gravel and tarmac stages! This is the only WRC race that features both surfaces as their own separate parts of the event. One day on gravel (Friday) and two days on tarmac (Sat and Sunday). Awesome. @AlexGelsomino and I did two different tests this week: Monday on a tight and technical gravel stage and Tuesday on a fun tarmac stage. This was my first time driving the Ford Fiesta WRC car on stages and it’s incredible. #iheartrally #FordFiestaWRC #WRCSpain

This helmet is one of my favorite things that Mr. @DeathSpray has hand-painted for me: my rally-spec helmet. So good. #handpaintedgoodness #brainbucket #DeathSprayCustom

A “super fan” showed up at our tarmac test in Spain this past Tuesday with some rad stuff for me to sign - which included many electric models of my racecars, a hand made model of another racecar, plus @MonsterEnergy signs and cans. Love fans like this. #bestfans #FordFocusWRC #FordFiestaWRC

Here’s a quick video from tarmac testing today in the hills of Spain in @msportltd’s @FordPerformance test car #FordFiestaWRC. As you can see, it features one of my favorite stage rally situations: a hairpin! (I ❤️ hairpins) Trust me when I say that the way this car drives and handles is mind-blowing. So, SO fast. I can’t wait for racing to start here in Spain next week. #hairpinsandhandbrakes #testdaysarethebestdays #butfornowjamón
