Ryan Shehan Claims Share of FR Americas Series Lead

Ryan Shehan Claims Share of FR Americas Series Lead

“The Crosslink Kiwi driver makes a huge comeback after setbacks at the start of the weekend.”

May 22, 2024 – Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport driver Ryan Shehan has been a favorite for podium finishes at every FR Americas event so far this season. The Austin, Texas native added two more podiums to his results resume at Road America this past weekend, making it three podiums in just six races, one chalking up to a win. Early setbacks threatened to turn Shehan’s weekend upside down with a tough qualifying session, but the young driver was able to turn it around to claim two runner-up results and a share of the series lead.

Mechanical issues plagued Ryan’s qualifying session, but he powered through to claim a seventh place start for race one of the weekend. Despite continuing mechanical problems in the first race, Shehan was able to climb three spots, finishing just shy of a podium in fourth. Starting fifth for race two on Saturday afternoon, and with the engine revved and running, Shehan could claim another three spots to secure his first podium finish of the weekend standing on the second step of the podium. Shehan’s fastest lap of race two placed him second for the start of the final race of the weekend on Sunday. He pushed his fellow Crosslink/Kiwi teammate for the win but had to settle for second when the race finished under yellow.

“It was tough to start with an oil leak in both qualifying and race one,” explains Shehan, “but we had the speed in the car to climb a few spots, and we got it sorted for races two and three. This was the kind of weekend where you have to just keep pushing, scoring points, and taking advantage of every chance you get. I am especially proud of how the Crosslink Kiwi team worked through all the challenges and now I have a share of the series lead.”

Shehan and the rest of the Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport team will travel to the racing capital of the world, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, June 13th through the 16th for the Indy SpeedTour on the 2.529-mile, 15-turn Grand Prix Circuit for their third official outing of the season.

Ryan Shehan Gears up for Three Rounds of FR Americas Action at Road America

Ryan Shehan Gears up for Three Rounds of FR Americas Action at Road America

“The Crosslink Kiwi driver looks to continue his podium streak”

May 15, 2024 – FR Americas veteran Ryan Shehan is ready for more action with the Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport crew for the second event weekend of the 2024 season. After making an appearance on the podium in his brief trip to the West Coast for the Laguna Seca SpeedTour last week, Shehan is rested and ready for three more rounds of FR Americas action in the Badger State of Wisconsin on the lengthy 4-mile-long road course of Road America.

Shehan sits third in the championship after just three races at NOLA Motorsports Park for the season opener. Coming off an extended break from racing, the season’s first two races in NOLA were a warm-up that led to a P1 finish in the final race. The Austin native hopes to use that momentum to continue his podium streak on Road America’s challenging, 14-turn circuit.

“The season opener is always a quick learning curve,” explains Shehan. “With new drivers you’re racing against, possible new engineering and new ideas, you never really know how the car will shape up until you get it out there against others, even if you do a lot of testing. We dialed it in by the last race, and now we’re ready to make a run for the championship lead.”

The weekend at Road America will consist of a test day on Thursday followed by a single practice and qualifying session on Friday. Saturday will see the first wheel-to-wheel action for races one and two, followed by the final race of the weekend on Sunday afternoon. The full weekend schedule can be found HERE. Live streaming for the weekend’s events can be found on the SpeedTour TV YouTube page HERE.

Stay tuned to the Ryan Shehan Racing social media pages on Instagram, Facebook, and X (Twitter) for updates and results from the weekend.

Next up is another bucket-list track: the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Anyone considering adding motorsports marketing to their business strategy is invited to come out to the track and see how Ryan works with B2B marketing partners. Space is limited, so to enjoy this fantastic event with first-class hospitality and racing of every description over the weekend of June 13 – 16, email Doug Shehan (doug.shehan@ryanshehan.com) now or call him at 512-616-8753.

Ryan Shehan Sees Action at the Laguna Seca FR Invitational

Ryan Shehan Sees Action at the Laguna Seca FR Invitational

“Driver of the #66 Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport Heads West for Racing and Business”

May 2, 2024 – Fresh from the test at Thunderhill Raceway Park April 22nd through the 25th, Ryan Shehan and the Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport team head down the West Coast to race in the Laguna Seca FR Invitational that is part of the 2024 Mission Foods Laguna Seca SpeedTour.

Shehan, who had a phenomenal start to the FR Americas season at NOLA Motorsports Park, sees this as an opportunity to race on one of the most iconic tracks in the world of auto racing.

“I’m looking forward to this weekend with the team,” explains Shehan. “Without the pressure of gaining points, it will be a great opportunity for the team and I to fine tune the car into what we want it to be for the rest of the season. Laguna Seca is a challenging course, so it’ll also provide some valuable wheel to wheel racing as I move towards a potential seat in IndyCar or F1.”

Laguna Seca is a bucket-list track that will have a large paddock full of teams, racers, and their sponsors, making it a go to for doing B2B business as well. Shehan added:

“We and our partners/sponsors have an incredible opportunity this year with three bucket-list events at Laguna Seca, Indianapolis, and COTA (Austin, Texas). The advantages of doing business during these events and the access to the C-Suite executives is a reason why Motorsports Marketing and Activation is so powerful.”

RYAN SHEHAN CLOSES OUT THE SEASON OPENER WITH A WIN

RYAN SHEHAN CLOSES OUT THE SEASON OPENER WITH A WIN

The 2024 Formula Regional Americas Championship season debuted at NOLA Motorsports Park this past weekend with its fair share of ups and downs. The first two out of three total races were plagued with race incidents and multiple red flags, but race three brought out the kind of racing the fans came to see: an almost fully green flag race and intense battles throughout the field. Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport standout and 2023 Vice-Champion Ryan Shehan came out on top with a win in race three, adding to his pair of top-five finishes earlier in the weekend.

Coming off an extended break from racing, race one and two proved tough for the Austin, Texas native as a third-place qualifying result, and some turmoil on track, dropped him to the fifth position for race one. Race two saw Shehan pass the green flag in fourth and despite the three caution periods amongst six laps, the veteran was set up for a pass for third when the final caution was flagged, and he had to settle for a fourth-place position. It was clear he was back into racing form as he claimed the fastest lap of the race and accompanying pole position for race three.

Determined to get to the top step of the podium, Shehan fought hard to keep his position early on. He then held the lead throughout the entire 17-lap race and went on to score the win with a lights to checkered flag victory. Ryan Shehan’s efforts over the weekend see him third in the championship standings with 15 wheel-to-wheel races remaining.

After race three Shehan went on to explain, “It was a tough race. Of course, I had to win the race that had the most green laps, but I’ll take it. I was just trying to stay consistent throughout the whole race. I think I cooked the tires a little too much on the start, so I got a bit worried, but it seemed like the gap was pretty good. We have a new tire compound this year, so a lot of this weekend was figuring out how to manage the tires well in competition. Happy we were able to get it done in the last race, now we just need to focus on keeping it consistent and racking up those championship points throughout the season.”

Now, Ryan will be doing some California dreaming as joins his Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport team on the West Coast this Friday.  First, he will be testing the new Ligier JSF4-22 as part of his Test Driver duties for Ligier and coaching during a local race weekend at Thunderhill Raceway. Then, he will be back in his car for the FR Invitational event joining the huge SpeedTour event at the historic Laguna Seca track March 3-5.
