LOCAL DRIVER MARINUS LOOKS TO BECOME FIRST WOMAN TO WIN TC RACE

Shauna Marinus, driver of the No. 4 Tri-Point Motorsports Mazda Protege ES, is a local driver who hopes to become the first woman ever to win a Speed World Challenge Touring Car race. Infineon Raceway, Marinus' home track, is the site in which she would like to achieve this accomplishment. She is well on her way to achieving this goal, after having placed sixth and third in her last two races, respectively.

CHAMPIONSHIP BATTLES HEATING UP

While Randy Pobst (Audi RS 6) holds a 12-point lead in the Speed GT Championship over Phil McClure (Corvette) and Bill Auberlen (BMW M3), he has not won a race yet this year, while his chief protagonists have each taken two wins. In SCCA Speed Touring Car, it's Auberlen (BMW 325) on top of Pierre Kleinubing (Acura RSX) by five points. Each driver has two wins on the season, but Mazda, Nissan and Lexus teams look to break into the winner's circle at any moment.
