Team owner and mentor Eric Jensen stated, "Oliver has surely now established himself as one of the top young American race car driver prospects. We started working together two years ago with Oliver attending one of our Racing Camp programs, and his development has been both steady and impressive ever since. You can teach young drivers a lot about the science, but ultimately it's few kids who possess the natural talent of young Oliver."

He's an ideal brand ambassador with how competitive he is on track, complemented by his charismatic thoughtful personality and his California kid good looks. We will be working diligently in the coming months to secure brand sponsorships for Oliver to return to our #1 race car for the 2024 Formula Regional Americas series where he would be the clear favorite to win the championship."
