Earlier this year Mirra parted ways with longtime car sponsor Subaru and is now racing a Mini RX. "Subaru had been working super hard to get a car to be competitive with those Fords and some of the other cars out there, and it's not really an even playing field: It was like showing up to a basketball court where everyone else is seven feet tall," says Mirra.
