Shawhan Pulls Out a Win at Mazda Raceway in Touring Car

Michael Shawhan managed to pull out a win in the Touring Class of the United States Touring Car Championship by making a remarkable pass on the last lap at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. His teammate Matt Cresci led all laps in the Super Touring class while Daniel Akhromstev won the GT class, and Joshua Allan won the Sportsman class easily.
The Touring Car class was extremely competitive, with the top seven cars separated by a few tenths of a second. Because of that, the start would be vital, and Dave Brown used the all-wheel drive of the Hawk/CCI/Works Mitsubishi Lancer to leap-frog to the lead from his sixth-place starting position.
