Wagner Edges Out Zilisch For Mazda Cup Victory

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — In round three of the Idemitsu Mazda MX-5 Cup presented by BFGoodrich Tires, Gresham Wagner and Connor Zilisch put on a show for the final lap. Near the halfway mark of the 45-minute race, Zilisch took over the lead and Wagner settled into second, but was planning his move for the closing laps of the race. Zilisch was by Wagner exiting the turn, but the move scrubbed off too much speed for Zilisch. I really appreciate that because he saved both our races on the first lap. So, when I saw (Zilisch) coming, I didn’t fight him too hard. “I made a couple of mistakes and had to get it back, but I know (Zilisch) wants to win just as much as me and races just as hard as me.
