Back in 2007, Felipe Gustavo's father sold the family car for the money to get them to Tampa Am for the first time. Felipe nor his father could speak a lick of English, and Felipe was denied entry to the Contest because he didn't sign up ahead of time. With persistence using his English translation dictionary for communication, we decided to let him in. Not only did he enter, but he earned the Golden Ticket in Qualifiers and ended up winning Tampa Am that year. In this episode Felipe shares his journey and experience.
