Chicago, Ill (PRWEB) May 17, 2013
Gold Eagle Co., a pioneer in fuel additives and stabilizers and makers of America’s best-selling brand STA-BIL®, has signed on as a sponsor of Continental Racing’s Mazda2 B-Spec race team for the new Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) B-Spec Class. As a sponsor, STA-BIL will provide support for a two-car team that will compete in three events this summer in Illinois and Wisconsin.
Continental Racing driver, Shawn Young will drive the #11 STA-BIL car, and team owner, Joel Weinberger will pilot the #10 Castrol® car. Race dates include May 18-19 at the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, IL, June 29-30 at Blackhawk Farms Raceway in South Beloit, IL and July 27-28 at Road America in Elkhart Lake, WI.
"We're pleased to welcome STA-BIL Fuel Stabilizer as our newest team sponsor, which offers us tremendous support to compete at the highest level in the Mazda2 B-Spec class,” said Joel Weinberger, owner of Mazda2 B-Spec Race Team. “We plan to compete in five races and need a minimum of four finishes to qualify for the Runoffs, and with all the support from STA-BIL, Castrol, BFGoodrich® and Mazda®, our two-car effort in the Continental Racing Mazda2s has great potential for success.”
Weinberger, owner of Continental Mazda in Naperville, IL, earned the 2011 SCCA National Championship in the Super Touring Class (STU) driving an Audi A4, and he also scored runner-up finishes in the 2010 and 2012 championship races.
Young was tagged to drive the new Mazda2 during its inaugural season in 2012, competing in a Pro Series race sanctioned by Grand-Am at Mid-Ohio where he brought the Mazda2 home in third place after leading several laps. He spent the remainder of the season learning and tuning the car while qualifying for the SCCA National Championship Runoffs held at Road America last September.
