The Sheehan/Arsham Team 3Peats at Mazda Raceway in Touring
The team of Gary Sheehan and Ali Arsham made it three wins in a row in the Touring class of the Nitto Tires United States Touring Car Championship (USTCC) at Mazda Raceway. Andrie Hartanto won the GT class and made up some points in the championship.

In the GT class, Hartanto led in the early phase and was followed by Daniel Akhromstev's Red Star Racing BMW M3 and Dave Brown’s Hawk Brakes/Competition Clutch Chevrolet Camaro.

In the Touring class, it was rear-wheel drive against all-wheel drive as the Sheehan/Arsham Hyundai Genesis was on the inside line with the AWD of Mario Lento’s Mitsubishi Lancer on the outside. Lento finished in second place less than 10 seconds behind winner Sheehan. Jason Alexandridis finished third. With the second-place finish, Lento claimed the Plastex Top Rookie award and earned a Plastex plastic repair master kit for his drive. Lento’s teammate Dave Brown finished third in the GT class, which gave the Cobra Electronics Top Team award to Life’s Good Racing. The team had two cars on the podium and won a Cobra radar detector in the process.
