Three Wins and Nine Podiums Results for Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport in FR Americas This Past Weekend

It was a dominating event in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin for Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport this past weekend. Taking on the 14-turn, 4.048-mile facility, the championship-winning program racked up five race wins and 14 podium results in one of the most dominant performances in recent years including three wins, nine podium results, and a trio of podium sweeps from FR Americas Championship Powered by Honda competitors.

“It was a great weekend for us and total domination,” expressed Teena Larsen. “We have proven that we are the class of the field in both F4 and FR and look forward to continuing our winning ways.”

The most dominant of performances came from FR America’s competitor as Callum Hedge had a perfect weekend of results. Earning the pole position in qualifying, Hedge went on to claim the checkered flag in all three wheel-to-wheel races.

Qualifying Results
Callum Hedge – 1st
Cooper Becklin – 2nd
Ryan Shehan – 3rd
Bryson Morris – 4th
Manuel Roza – 9th
Kevin Janzen – 11th

Race one was a podium sweep for Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport as Hedge led the way against championship point leader Ryan Shehan, who was able to solidify a second-place finish. Cooper Becklin joined Hedge and Shehan on the podium to put a trio of Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport drivers on the box. Narrowly missing the fourth position on track, Bryson Morris was fifth, with Manuel Roza and Kevin Janzen crossing the line seventh and 12th respectively.

Race two saw much of the same as it was Hedge that was once again at the top of the results sheets as the top three spots remained unchanged. It was Shehan who crossed the line in second, earning his fifth podium result in as many races with Becklin close behind in third. Bryson Morris improved from fifth to fourth in race two to make it a one, two, three, four finish for Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport drivers. Roza added another P7 result, while Janzen drove to ninth, putting all six Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport drivers in the top-ten.

A carbon copy from races one and two, race three saw Hedge make his third trip to the podium in as many races over the weekend, with Shehan and Becklin following suit in second and third. Sweeping the podium in three races over the weekend solidified Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport as the clear leader in the FR Americas Powered by Honda Team Championship. Manuel Roza had his strongest drive of the weekend to finish fourth, while Morris put five team drivers in the top-six with a P6 result. Continuing their presence in the top-ten, Janzen added another ninth-place result to close the weekend.

Larsen added, “Amazing performance by the team and our drivers. Three wins, nine podium results, the driver and team championship point lead. We are already looking forward to the next one.”

Less than a month to the next wheel-to-wheel action, Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport will shift its focus to the June 22-25 event at the famed Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.

Ryan Shehan Battles for FR Americas Championship

Ryan Shehan Battles for FR Americas Championship

FR Americas Powered by Honda, early championship points leader Ryan Shehan returned to the podium this past weekend alongside his Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport teammates at Road America. Shehan claimed three second-place finishes and the Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport team dominated in the series this weekend, confidently securing the team points lead after a full podium sweep in all three races.

After scoring the third-fastest lap in a qualifying grid of twelve drivers, Shehan crossed the finish line second after a completely green-flag race. His speed in race one earned him a second position start for race two, where he claimed his next second place trophy of the weekend. Starting third in his final race, Ryan completed his trifecta of podium finishes, claiming his third and final second-place result and keeping himself in strong contention for the overall series point lead.

“I’m really proud of this weekend’s results,” explained Shehan. “It’s great when the Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport team can take all three spots on the podium. My teammates and I will continue to push each other to excel every single time we’re on the track.”

Joining Shehan in the paddock this weekend was his Keller Williams Realty family.

“It was great to meet so many Keller Williams agents in person,” he said. “We recently partnered with the Harrison Noel real estate team in Austin, and instantly became part of a huge referral network. This was the first event we’ve hosted where the agents could come out to the track and get the full racing experience as our partner.”

Tricia Brost, CEO of KW’s Brost Group, had this to say about the event, “We all had such a fantastic time. World Class Day!”

When Shehan introduces prospective homebuyers to Keller Williams agents anywhere in the country, they’ll know they’re in good hands with a highly qualified real estate agent. And, they’ll be supporting the Ryan Shehan Racing team and Shehan’s nonprofit, Shehan Strong.

If you know of someone who is looking to buy, sell or invest in real estate in the U.S. or elsewhere around the globe, the Harrison Noel Team will help you.

Shehan will take a few weeks off and be back on track at the Mid-Ohio Sportscar Course in June for the FR Americas third round of the season. The field will hit the track Thursday, June 22 for testing and conclude after three races the following Sunday afternoon.
