Top 5 Finish For MC Racing
October 11, 2009 (Buttonwillow, CA) - Michael McColligan, driving the #36 Mazdatrix/Idemitsu Mazda RX8,
secured 5th position in Round 6 of the Nitto Tires United States Touring Car Championship at Buttonwillow Raceway.
At a track he knows well, McColligan was right on the pace from the opening practice. He continued this progression
running a lap in second qualifying just 1 second off the front runners. From the inside of the 3rd row he got his
characteristic strong launch at the drop of the green and focused on the leaders ahead. Traffic was tough in the 54
car mixed-run group shuffling McColligan back a bit. “I lost my focus a bit with all the traffic and dust clouds and
dropped back somewhat”. McColligan got back in clean air and started dropping his lap times but ran out time
as the checkers fell bringing the car home in the fifth spot. “Another strong weekend for the team as we continue
to get closer to the front, as usual the RX8 was fast, reliable, and a blast to drive!” summed up McColligan.
McColligan and the MC Racing Crew get right back to work preparing for the 2-Hour USTCC Finale October 24-25
at Infineon Raceway.
