Gonzalez Victorious In MX-5 Cup Thriller At VIR

ALTON, Va. – Tyler Gonzalez scored his third Idemitsu Mazda MX-5 Cup presented by BFGoodrich Tires win of the season at VIRginia International Raceway after starting from the last row of the grid on Saturday. Gonzalez fought through the field for 45 minutes to take the win by 0.076-second over Connor Zilisch. As a result, Gonzalez started the race from 27th on the grid. On the final lap, Gonzalez was able to get around Zilisch for the lead. It wasn’t to be: Gonzalez beat Zilisch to the line by 0.076-second. “These races are always filled with mayhem from the get-go,” Gonzalez said. That’s first, first, second for us in the last three races. I thought it was going to be a race between us and then out of nowhere, in the last 10 minutes, Tyler (Gonzalez) just motored up to us.
