Dyson Looks to End Championship Trans Am Season on Winning Note
October 31, 2022
CD Racing Also Fields Entries for Brabham and Masaood
POUGHKEEPSIE, NY (October 31, 2022) – Chris Dyson, already crowned the 2022 Trans Am by Pirelli champion, is looking this weekend for his sixth win in the series’ 11th and final race of the season. Joining him under the CD Racing banner are Matthew Brabham and Humaid Masaood.
It looked like Dyson was on his way to that sixth win last month in the penultimate round of the series at Virginia International Raceway. After a dominating qualifying performance in the debut of his new #16 ALTWELL CBD Riley Technologies-designed Ford Mustang, Dyson comfortably led the field until the halfway point, when a car being lapped for the third time in the 100-mile sprint knocked Dyson off the road and out of the race.
“It was really unfortunate,” Dyson admitted. “It would have been great to win first time out in our new car. But all we can do in racing is look forward and not back.”
Dyson’s VIR disappointment was eased with Brabham’s victory there in Dyson’s former mount, the #20 Concord American Flagpole Ford Mustang. In his two previous starts for the team this season Brabham had also won at Mid-Ohio and finished second at Lime Rock Park.
“It will be great having Matty back in our championship-winning car,” Dyson said. “This weekend should give us a good head-to-head comparison with our old car, which we’ve continuously developed over the past five seasons, and our new one, which we believe has great potential.”
Humaid Masaood will be back in his #21 allgram Ford Mustang for COTA, his first start since the series’ West Coast swing, where he scored a pair of strong finishes at Laguna Seca and Sonoma.
Dyson noted that the 29-car field at COTA is an indicator of the gathering overall strength of the series and the promise of increasing competitiveness in 2023. “Some of our strongest competitors this season just had runs of bad fortune. I had my share, too, but they had more. I don’t expect that to be the case next year.”
