Star Mazda Series: Marc De Vellis, a 19-year-old Canadian driver from Burnaby, BC, won a hotly contested race at Road Atlanta. De Vellis narrowly beat Oliver Rowen by .882 of a second.

Goodyear is the sole tire supplier for this Series.

De Vellis, a rookie, said, "My tires were the best I've ever felt. With two laps to go, I hit my best lap. The Goodyear tires gave me a stable car for the whole race."

Rowen led early in the race, but De Vellis took advantage of traffic created by slower cars to take the lead.

Moses Smith was third, Luis Schiavo took fourth and Tim Jennings finished fifth.

"The tires were great," Smith said. "The car stayed balanced the whole race. After the race we checked the air pressures and they were right where we wanted them."
