VeeKay, a one-time winner of the American Racing Series, is making a growing name for itself in the United States. Carpenter, the man who himself has won three races, talks about his working relationship with the Dutchman. “There are definitely elements of teacher and student in the collaboration. I definitely feel like we have a strong relationship.
