Gary Sheehan Wins United States Touring Car Championship at Buttonwillow

Gary Sheehan Wins United States Touring Car Championship at Buttonwillow
The United States Touring Car Championship is back underway after a two month delay due to Covid-19
precautions. Gary Sheehan returns to the series intent on defending his 2018 and 2019 Touring Car
Championships in the #31 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8L. The condensed season with
several races spaced tightly together is sure to challenge racing teams and drivers not seen in previous
years of this racing series.

“I am very excited to get back in the racecar with the GoGoGear Racing Team”, Sheehan said leading up
to the season opener. “Sim racing is a fun substitute, but nothing can compare to the excitement of the
true risk vs. reward of battling wheel to wheel with other drivers that want that top podium spot as
much as I do. I can’t wait to get back to the sights, sounds, and smells of race cars being driven in

The extended off-season allowed the team to spend more time than usually provided to get the car
ready for competition. With end-of-season maintenance completed on time, the delays in getting the
2020 season started granted the team the luxury of continuing to develop the car more than is typical
over the winter break. The additional development leaves the team with even more confidence in
bringing home a third consecutive Touring Car Championship.

The United States Touring Car Championship kicks off on June 13-14 at Buttonwillow Raceway Park in
Buttonwillow, CA. The race is scheduled to start at 4:05pm on Sunday, June 14th and will be a 35 minute
sprint race format. Coverage of the race will be broadcast on Final Drive TV on NBC Sports Network at a
later date. Check local listings for broadcast dates and times.
