The FR Americas Championship Powered by Honda is back in action at Road America this weekend, and points leader Ryan Shehan is eager to get back to racing after a two-month break in the schedule. Shehan is leading the championship with 65 points totaling up from his two wins and a third-place finish at NOLA Motorsports Park back in March. Along with the rest of the Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport team, Shehan’s results helped catapult the Texas-based program to the top spot on the Team Championship standings as well.
“We got off to the best start we probably could have during the first event at NOLA Motorsports Park. Now we just must continue that momentum into Road America and the rest of the season,” Shehan explained. “The team and I are both really comfortable with the car, so we’re hoping for a repeat of NOLA, but with three wins instead of two.”
Off the track, during the two-month break between races, Ryan spearheaded a Motorsports Marketing Virtual Roundtable event, with some of the top leaders in the industry sharing their expertise. As host, Shehan led the panel in discussing how businesses can leverage motorsports for a marketing advantage.
Ryan also announced a new partnership with the Harrison Noel Team, a Keller Williams, Austin-based luxury real estate brand led by Pathfinder supporter Kristen King. “Ryan’s journey to F1 racing will take him across the U.S. and internationally,” says Kristen. “And our global real estate network means Ryan is connected to the best Keller Williams agents in the world. Referrals to the Harrison Noel Team now support Ryan’s goal of driving in F1.”

Shehan will take to the track at Road America on Thursday for the Road America SpeedTour for a few test sessions before starting his three-race weekend with a couple of practice sessions on Friday. His qualifying session as well as all three races will be available to live stream on the SpeedTourTV YouTube page HERE.
