Cicero Wins 2022 Mazda MX-5 Cup Shootout

KERSHAW, S.C. — After two days of driving, several meetings and multiple sessions spent reviewing data at Carolina Motorsports Park, three drivers earned scholarships in the 15th edition of the Mazda MX-5 Cup Shootout. Nate Cicero came away from the 2022 Mazda MX-5 Cup Shootout with the big prize — a scholarship valued at $110,000 to compete in next year’s Idemitsu Mazda MX-5 Cup presented by BFGoodrich Tires. “It’s pretty insane, I’ve been working for this the entire year,” said Cicero, who participated in the Spec MX-5 Shootout last year. “I am kind of speechless, but so happy that I’m going to be racing in MX-5 Cup next year. The Mazda MX-5 Cup Shootout judging panel consisted of professional racers Tom Long, Jonathan Bomarito and Andrew Carbonell. Following an extensive evaluation from the MX-5 Cup judges, Cicero was determined to be the racer that best embodied Mazda’s ideals and speed.
