Victory for Vixen Cycle and LTK Insulation Technologies at WWTR Trans Am

Madison, ILLINOIS – May 13, 2024 – The Trans Am Championship presented by Pirelli CUBE 3 Architecture TA2 Series rolled into World Wide Technology Raceway last weekend for Round 4 of the SpeedTour event circuit. The No. 97 Vixen Cycle LTK Mustang with driver Tom Sheehan and the Mike Cope team found success at the top of the Pro Am podium and a long overdue celebration.

Focus and positive attitudes paved the way into the weekend as the tides have turned and synergy is flowing. Balance and harmony delivered throughout various talented components make up a winning team. In a very competitive and high-pressure motorsport environment, this process is constantly evolving, learning and growing together.

Official Trans Am practice was Friday, May 10 where the Vixen LTK Mustang showed good speed in the running order. Qualifications for the race on Saturday, May 11 put Sheehan and his lively Vixen livery Mustang on the grid starting in the eighth row for the 100.mile feature race.

“At the start, I was able to make some spots early and we were really on it," commented Tom Sheehan from victory lane. "The car fired off pretty good in the opening run.  A little contact spun me. I got caught out just slightly and it was enough to send me around.”

“I really got back in it when the caution came out and got us back up to the field. The race came back to me and I seized the opportunity. We had a great car all day. It was a lot of fun.”

“The race pace was good, coming into the race with a good attitude made it all possible. The team stayed behind me and it all started making sense again. The car was great, and we’ve been having a great car week in and week out– bad luck and a bumpy start to the season has been hanging over me. It’s nice to have the monster off my back. This win is for the team, Jamie and Matt, the support from everyone at Mike Cope and bringing home this result for everybody, this is what it’s all about.”

“I’m looking forward to heading to Lime Rock. That is my home track, and it feels good to know that we will go there coming off an incredible win for me and the guys.”

Sheehan and the No. 97 Vixen Cycle LTK Mustang took a P11 finish overall at World Wide Technology Raceway in what proved to be a thrilling and exhilarating race with his first TA2 Pro Am victory.

The CUBE 3 Architecture TA2 Series next hits the track at Lime Rock Park for the Memorial Day Classic, May 24 - 27.
