Sonoma, CA

Keyes wins two in a row


The FCC Mazda powered open wheel racers took to Sonoma Raceway this weekend for the first Formula Car Challenge presented by Goodyear double header of the 2014 season.


The weather was beautiful all weekend, with temperatures in the mid-70s. On Friday many of the racers took advantage of the optional test day, and they were ready to go come Saturday morning.


Saturday Pole Positions

Pro FM - Alex Keyes

FS2.0 - Jaden Conwright

FM - Cameron Parsons


When the green flag dropped, pole sitter Alex Keyes and Parker Nicklin went side-by-side into turn two. Nicklin ran out of room and dropped back into the pack. Nicklin worked his way through the pack and had some great racing with series rookie Mattia Vita who he eventually got past. Keyes held the Pro FM lead for the balance of the race. In FS2.0 VMB Scholarship winner Jaden Conwright got a strong lead, and held onto it until the checked flag. The FM class saw some great racing between multiple FM champion Cameron Parsons, and series rookie Tazio Ottis. Wade Leathers scored a long sought return to the podium with his third place finish in Formula Mazda.

In Pro FM Alex Keyes led from flag-to-flag again on Sunday, and Parker Nicklin finished second. Stan Kohls and Andy Brown had a very close battle the entire race, with Kohls finishing ahead of Brown to secure third place in Pro FM. In FS2.0, Conwright got off to a great start but a flat tire sent him to the pit lane. Once the tire was changed, Conwright ran his fastest laps of the weekend, but was unable to catch back up with the lead pack. John Schauerman took the FS2.0 win, and once again Parsons won in FM.
