Entering Road America adrift in the MX-5 Cup points standings after a tough event at Watkins Glen, a pair of 3rd and 4th place finishes, with trouble for some rivals, helped bolster Wagner’s efforts to defend his 2021 championship.
Gresham Wagner and the Spark Performance team earned a second place finish in the opening round of the 2020 Battery Tender MX-5 Cup season. After qualifying in 3rd, Wagner lead the most laps in race 1 before falling to 2nd on the final lap. Wagner and fellow podium finishers Robert Noaker and teammate Selin Rollan battled for the lead all race before a showdown at the end. While an opportunity at a victory slipped away, a second place finish was a strong start to the 2020 season.
Gresham Wagner and the Spark Performance team will begin the 2020 MX-5 Cup season at Road America later this week. The delayed season gets underway with a pair of races on Thursday and Friday, July 23-24.
