Reza Arsham Debuts New Car and Finishes Second at Buttonwillow

Buttonwillow, CA – Reza Arsham finished second at Round 4 of the United States Touring Car Championship (USTCC) race at Buttonwillow Raceway driving the Konig Wheels Honda Civic.

Arsham had problems with the engine in the team’s other Honda Civic and there was not enough time to get that engine repaired in time for the race. So the team decided to purchase a new car and got it ready in time for the race for Arsham to drive. He went on to qualify the car in second place and finished in second place. “The race was intense and there were several times, especially on the first lap, where I thought I was going to crash into someone,” commented Arsham.
