Moses on podium with a second place finish at the Road America 500.

Road America boasts fourteen corners and three flat-out straights. With the weather hot and steamy, you could find nothing but smiles in the paved R-Sport Pit area, located in Road America's New Paddock.

With a respectable second-place finish, in his red #76 HASA Pool Products/R-Sport Mazda, Moses has his sights set on the future.

"It was a great feeling to pick up another podium in this competitive series. More importantly, I am pleased that the team was able to gather up some more championship points," Moses related.

Ron Roland, R-Sport team-owner agreed and added, " This sport is all about team work. With four races left, Moses and I have an aggressive game plan in place."

Moses qualified for this race third, out of the impressive field of twenty-eight participants.. After the green flag unfurled, the pack jockeyed for position. Fourth place starter, Tim Jennings made Moses earn his piece of the track.

"R-Sport gave me a great car. I think that we could've given Cosmo (race leader) a good challenge, but he was able to pull away during the start," Moses reported, "we never got the chance to catch up to him".

The fact that there was not one yellow flag in this 15-lap race attests to the caliber of drivers participating in the Star Mazda North American series.
