Going into the final race weekend at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, the team was ready to race with a perfected strategy and amazing precision.

Llano said, “This has been an unbelievable year for us and I am so proud of the success we have experienced. We trained hard and continued to work through adversity and ultimately prevailed. I am ecstatic with the results of our 2015 season on the track and can’t wait to do it all again next year.”
Not only has Serket Racing closed an impressive race season,–their most successful ever–the team has also made incredible progress in furthering its mission to support U.S. service members and veterans. This year in particular, the team has worked with top veteran partners to provide life changing assistance and experiences. Llano said, “Through scholarship opportunities, physical and mental health programs, and events that raise awareness of the struggles these individuals face, we have been able to really change the lives of veterans and their families nationwide and will continue to do so in the coming months and in 2016.”
The Serket Racing team is ready to conclude this year with some exciting new initiatives to further their mission as they prepare for the 2016 race season.
