Ryan Shehan Adds Keller Williams President to Pathfinder Program

Ryan Shehan Adds Keller Williams President to Pathfinder Program

With three podium results in his sophomore season of the F4 United States Championship Powered by Honda, Austinite Ryan Shehan is working hard on the business side of his motorsports program. With a 501(c)(3) charity in place under the title Shehan Strong, unique partner programs have also been established to help pave the way for the future. This week, Shehan is pleased to welcome Marc King, president of Keller Williams (KW), the world’s largest real estate franchise by agent count, along with his wife Kristen King together as a Pathfinder to their growing motorsports effort.

“First off, I can’t thank Marc and Kristen enough for coming on board to support our racing efforts,” expressed Shehan. “We’re working hard both on and off the track, and the Kings’ financial support brings us closer to our goals.”

“Supporting our youth is of utmost importance,” added King. “The fact that Ryan is so focused on helping our communities was the only reason we needed to support his racing program. I look forward to cheering him on at upcoming events and hopefully helping him achieve his first F4 win.”

King is intent on disrupting the traditional approach to real estate – focused on delivering and innovating on world-class customer experiences at scale, while keeping the agent at the center of the real estate experience. Previously, he served as the director of growth for KW. With a real estate career spanning more than 20 years, King has also served as a real estate coach, a master trainer, and has held a multitude of senior leadership positions, from the market center to the regional level at KW.

Shehan added, “The approach that Marc has for the future of KW is something that lines up well with our program. While Marc’s company looks to help you sell your house fast, I look to be fast on the track and on the top step of the podium.”

Next up for Ryan Shehan will be a trip to the New Jersey Motorsports Park for rounds 10 through 12 of the F4 United States Championship Powered by Honda over the July 29-31 weekend.

Shehan (age 17) is an aspiring Formula One racer, growing business leader, and nonprofit founder making an impact on youth in the Austin community. His company, Ryan Shehan Racing, builds solutions that enable his partners and sponsors to leverage motorsports to uniquely and economically brand, promote, and build/maintain relationships in 360° with customers, employees, vendors, and other stakeholders. His nonprofit, Shehan Strong, allows him to support, engage, and inspire the next generation. He and his organizations are active members of the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce and Austin Gives.

Two Podiums for Ryan Shehan at The Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course

Two Podiums for Ryan Shehan at The Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course

Returning to the seat of his #66 Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport machine this past weekend, Texan Ryan Shehan was back on the podium. Taking on the F4 United States Championship Powered by Honda, Shehan earned two podium results at the 2.4-mile, 15-turn legendary facility, and completed his career best weekend in open wheel racing.

After the Promoters Test Day on Thursday and the one and only official practice on Friday morning, it was straight into qualifying and Shehan earned his best qualifying result of the season. Qualifying fourth and lining up on the outside of row two for the first wheel-to-wheel action of the weekend, it would be all eyes on race one Saturday as the Austinite would look to fight for the win.

Ryan Shehan Racing“I am excited to have my best starting position ever in F4,” explained Shehan. “I have one podium earlier this year, and the goal is to double that total up tomorrow during the first wheel-to-wheel action on the weekend.”

Lining up fourth, the lights would go out and it was off to the races for Shehan. An early race caution slowed the pace briefly but when the race resumed a few laps later, Shehan found himself in second, directly behind his Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport teammate Bryson Morris. Holding station and exchanging fast lap after fast lap, a late race caution would bunch the field back up for one final restart. Unfortunately, that restart would not come and Shehan crossed the line in the second position and earned his career best F4 United States Championship Powered by Honda result.

With fast laps from race one setting the grid for race two, Shehan started the second race of the weekend from the outside of the front row. Looking to climb one position further up the podium from the day prior, the driver of the #66 entry fell to third on the start but immediately moved back to second by the time he exited turn two. Making several attempts to pass the leader, minor contact was made on lap three causing Shehan’s right rear tire to puncture forcing him to the pits. With lap times from race two setting the grid for race three, it was important to get back on track to go for the quickest lap possible. Responding to the quick action of his team, Shehan was able to clock the fourth quickest time and finish P19.  Most importantly, he would start the third and final race of the weekend from the outside of row two and have another chance to stand atop the podium.

Moving into the third position early in race three, it looked as if Shehan would have a shot at the win before contact broke his front wing. With a severely damaged wing that effected both straight line speed and downforce, Shehan had his hands full to try and keep the rest of the field behind him. With all parts intact yet not operating to the optimal performance level, Ryan had a gutsy drive to end his third and final race of the weekend on the podium.

Shehan added, “I could feel something was wrong with the car and thought that the pace would start to drop off or we’d even have to retire.  A lap later, the wing was still on, and I was able to drive around the problem. I adjusted my driving to make the car work and just thought to myself that I owed my team another good result. In the end it turned out well and that is two podiums on the weekend.”

After First Points, Ryan Shehan Looks Forward to Mid-Ohio

After First Points, Ryan Shehan Looks Forward to Mid-Ohio

After scoring his first career F4 United States Championship Powered by Honda points at Road America, Team Crosslink driver Ryan Shehan is looking for more. Set to take on the famed 2.4 mile, 15-turn Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Shehan aims to carry the momentum from the most recent rounds into race seven, eight and nine of the 2021 season.

“I have not yet been to Mid-Ohio, but I have been studying hard to make sure I am as ready as possible heading into the event weekend,” explained Shehan. “I have a great team behind me, good equipment and valuable partners so I just need to get behind the wheel and do my thing. Fortunately, we have the opportunity to take advantage of some Promoter Test sessions prior to the official weekend so that will help.”

With two event weekends now behind him and knowing what it takes to run at the front of the field, Shehan has increased his preparation program off the track to ensure that he can perform better on it.

Shehan added, “The F4 Championship is very competitive. I know it is my rookie season but as a racer, I want to win. From Road Atlanta to Road America, we made huge strides and looking to do that again at Mid-Ohio this weekend. Mid-Ohio is the track that I had circled on my calendar, as the third event weekend, that I wanted to make sure that I was up to speed, and scoring points every opportunity possible.”

Ryan Shehan Earns Two Top-Ten Results at Road America

Ryan Shehan Earns Two Top-Ten Results at Road America

Ryan Shehan RacingRyan Shehan will next take on the USF Juniors series at Virginia International Raceway in early June

It was his second ever trip to Road America as Ryan Shehan would take part in rounds four, five and six of the F4 United States Championship Powered by Honda. As a second-year driver, the Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport competitor was looking to bring his experience to the table in one of the longest tracks on the series in his quest to acquire as many championship points as possible.

Showing speed in practice on Friday that slotted him into the top-five on the results sheets, Shehan returned to the track on Saturday for qualifying and the first race of the weekend. With a difficult qualifying run that saw him mired back in the 13th position, the young Texan would start his first race of the weekend from the inside of row seven.

“Qualifying was not the best for us and really put me behind for the first race,” expressed Shehan. “I was able to claw my way back forward and score some valuable championship points but need to make sure I start further up the grid in the future. With the yellow flags and the competition level high, it is very difficult to move forward in our shorter races.”

Displaying the speed of his Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport machine, Shehan worked his way from his P13 starting spot to cross the line in eighth. Race two on the weekend would be another point scoring race for the sophomore Shehan as he secured another top-ten result, this time in the ninth position. In a race that featured only nine laps, opportunities to move forward were limited as Shehan managed to level up as many positions as possible in the allotted green flag laps.

Back on the track Sunday afternoon for the third and final race of the weekend, round six of the F4 United States Championship Powered by Honda would be green late in the day. Looking to make it three-for-three in point scoring races at Road America, Shehan fell just short finishing eleventh in the final race of the triple header.

Shehan continued, “The weekend did not end like we had wanted to. My forward progress was stalled, and I missed the points for my first time this year. While it was a good weekend, the drive to win is more than ever, and I can’t wait until our next event at Virginia International Raceway in the USF Junior Series.”

Looking to gain as much wheel-to-wheel experience as possible, Ryan Shehan is set to battle in the pre-Road to Indy program, USF Juniors, at the Virginia International Raceway over the June 3-5 weekend. Utilizing the same Ligier JSF4, this will be the first time that Shehan will compete with Cooper Tires as he accelerates his learning curve.
