Whelden and Dobson Win at Mazda Raceway

Monterey, CA -- Ken Dobson won the GT class and Michael Whelden won the Touring class at Round 4 of the Nitto Tires United States Touring Car Championship at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

In the GT class, Dobson, driving the My Race Shop/TelTac Factory Five GTM, started on pole and pulled away from second place finisher Dave Brown who was driving the Hawk Performance Chevrolet Camaro. VJ Mirzayan finished in third place in the Achilles Motorsports BMW M3.

Whelden won the Touring class in a different car than what he started the weekend in. Whelden usually drives the San Rafael Mitsubishi Lancer but when the car experience mechanical issues in qualifying the team switched to a back up BMW M3 to keep his chances of a championship. Whelden had to work for the win as at least five people held the lead during the race at some point. What matters most is who has the lead at the end which was Whelden’s Sparta/CCI BMW M3. Teammate Beau Borders finished second in the Hawk/Sparta/CCI BMW M3 and Roger Eagleton’s GoGoGear.com/UTI BMW M3 finished third.

With his third place Eagleton also won the Sportsman class with Gregg Hughes driving the Achilles Motorsports BMW M3 finishing second and Jim Stevens in the other Achilles Motorsports BMW M3 finishing third.
