Reza Arsham Sets Record for Youngest Winner in United States Touring Car Championship History While Harper Wins a Tough GT Class.
The GT field had a diverse six-car field with some fast cars, but finishing first in the GT class and overall was the AP Racing/BC Forged Chevrolet Corvette of Rob Harper. In the Sportsman class, Reza Arsham won in the Konig Wheels/GoGoGear.com BMW M3, becoming the youngest driver ever to win a USTCC race at 20 years old. Doug Makishima extended his win streak from last season and won the Super Touring class in the ARG/Summit Tech BMW M3. Gary Sheehan had mechanical issues but still managed to take the win in the Touring Car class in the GoGoGear.com/Konig Wheels Hyundai Genesis Coupe.
The standing start was full of action as usual, but Makishima managed to come out ahead of everyone else. Harper used the big V8 engine of the Corvette and soon took over the lead while Larry Bani pushed his GoGoGear.com/Konig Wheels BMW 335i closer to him. Viktor Czapla
