SGT Rookie Schweitzer Claims West Coast Class Title
October 10, 2021
GRANTSVILLE, Ut. (10 Oct 2021) - John “Buckshot” Schweitzer provisionally claimed Trans Am West SGT class championship at Utah Motorsports Campus in his rookie season.
Driving the #00 Superior Builders Inc./Kidder Mathews/Highlander Motorsports Ford Fusion Schweitzer battled with SGT rivals Cindy Lux and Dirk Leuenberger at Utah Motorsports Complex, bringing home the team’s fourth podium finish of the 2021 season to provisionally claim the Trans Am West SGT Championship.
“What an incredible experience this season has been”, said Schweitzer. “When we set our sights on the SGT Championship we knew it was going to be a huge push up from club racing. We are a small team running out of the Pacific Northwest so meeting the challenges of stepping up to pro racing has been a bit stressful but also exciting. One of the things I didn’t anticipate was the camaraderie amongst the competitors and teams, which has really amplified the experience in a positive way. I’d like to also express sincere appreciation to the Trans Am Staff and Officials. We made our share of mistakes in our rookie season and the support we received was exemplary. Our team is looking forward to the final round at COTA and celebrating our success at the 2021 Honors Gala.”
The Buckshot Motorsports will join the Trans Am West Coast TA2 class grid for the 2022 season.
