Staff Sgt. Dwyer and Carbonell Win, Mazda Sweeps the CTSCC Podium

IRVINE, Calif. (May 2, 2015) – Marine Staff Sgt. Liam Dwyer and his teammate Andrew Carbonell grabbed victory today in the ST category of the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. This is the fifth consecutive victory at Mazda Raceway for Freedom Autosport, whose cars finished first and second. Carbonell passed leader Tom Long in Turn 9 of the final lap to take the checkered flag. Mazda MX-5 cars swept the podium, finishing first, second, third and fifth.

Dwyer, who lost his lower left leg and suffered many other severe injuries when he stepped on an IED in Afghanistan in 2011, had a special guest at the track this weekend. Sgt. Aaron Denning was the man who saved Dwyer’s life and earned the Bronze Star medal of valor for his efforts. He was seeing Dwyer race for the first time. Denning threw the green flag to start the race, and will be the Grand Marshal for tomorrow’s TUDOR United SportsCar Series race at Mazda Raceway.
