Contreras concluded by saying, "I want to thank my sponsors who are making this event possible, Voli and Global Aircraft Solutions. I’m very proud of their continued support and I hope everything will come together for us in Phoenix so I can give them the good result they deserve. I also want to remind my friends who are over 21 to drink responsibly and ‘know when to say when’. That’s no joke. As a past spokesperson for M.A.D.D., I really can’t stress that enough. Everyone likes to have a good time, including myself, but you can’t if you are risking your own safety and the safety of others. 21 means 21. Be safe, enjoy your Voli, but never drink if you will be driving! N.E.V.E.R. NEVER!”
