Martinez, CA: Sheehan Motor Racing proudly announces Drummond Motor Sports' (DMS) support of their Subaru WRX entry in the 2003 U.S. Touring Car Championship.

Sheehan Motor Racing is now using DMS's race proven 50mm Giant Strut. The double adjustable 50mm shock absorber has one of the largest pistons available in a shock absorber in the world. This gives superior control and more precise tuning due to larger displacement and pressure areas, providing the higher damping capabilities that severe rally and race competition requires.

The shocks have already proven themselves during the 4th round of the US Touring Car Championship at the new Reno-Fernley racetrack. Without any prior testing time, the Subaru WRX was right on pace in the very first session of the weekend using the DMS recommended settings. They also proved to be extremely durable by easily surviving a violent off-track excursion that bent both front wheels and a control arm. The car remained competitive and was even able to challenge for the lead despite the damage, ultimately finishing the race in second place.

"I've got to say I am very impressed with these DMS struts," said Gary Sheehan, the team's driver. "We've had no testing time on these shocks and right out of the box they were a noticeable improvement. The car is already significantly more predictable, which makes it easier for me to drive at the limit. Once we get some solid testing on these struts, I think their adjustability and precision are going to give us a huge advantage over the competition."

"DMS has always enjoyed motorsports and is proud to help up and coming drivers wherever we can," said Mark Moore, Managing Director of DMS North America. "The teamSMR Subaru WRX driven by Gary is an ideal candiate for us to test and hopefully bring our Tarmac Races setups to the next level that will become the industry standard by which other companies are then measured. teamSMR is quite enthusiastic and show lots of promise for the remainder of the season. We are already looking forward to next year."
