WERC Goes Day Into Night at Buttonwillow for Round Two of 2014 Season

Fuel stops are key to any endurance team’s race strategy. With its stable of three Mazda 6 diesels, Team Mazdaspeed kept its fuel strategy during the three-hour enduro At Buttonwillow in April simple by not stopping at all.
Driving the No. 70 car, Ken Saward did the whole stint himself and took home first place for his efforts.
“I kept thinking of the word ‘sublime’ while I was driving it, because once you get into a rhythm in the car, it feels so good,” Saward said. “It’s got a ton of torque. It’s a very comfortable car to drive.”
Teammate Jeremy Barnes took over in the No. 55 car halfway through the race, replacing co-driver Preston Lerner.
