Now that the halfway point in the FR Americas powered by Honda season has been crossed, the championship battle is beginning to shape up. Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport driver Ryan Shehan kept with his perfect podium record this season, claiming his ninth podium finish in a row and sixth-second place finish to accompany his two victories and a third in 2023.
Shehan, who started his season off hot with two wins, has been a driver to watch this season, proving his goal of making it to the elite world of the Formula One World Championship may not be too far away. After qualifying in second for race one, Shehan piloted his #66 car into the same position at the finish line while also picking up the fastest lap of the race, earning him the pole position for race two. Having to settle for second in race two again, Shehan took to the track for one last shot at the top step of the podium, fighting amongst his teammates in front and behind him. Ryan finished out his weekend claiming one last second-place podium Sunday afternoon.
After his sixth runner-up result in a row, Shehan still remains second in the championship standings, just behind his Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport teammate.
“I’m thankful and proud of the Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport team for my ninth podium result, a podium for each race this season,” expressed Shehan. “After six second-place finishes in a row, I’m definitely eager to get back on the top step of the podium and hopefully we can do so at New Jersey Motorsports Park in one month’s time.”
Shehan will return to the track in his Harrison Noel Team Powered by KW (Keller Williams) branded car in just over a month at the 2.25-mile, 12-turn road circuit of New Jersey Motorsports Park for the New Jersey Lottery SpeedTour July 28-30. In the meantime, watch in the coming weeks for a number of announcements off the track for Shehan for both his Ryan Shehan Racing company and Shehan Strong 501c3 nonprofit.
