Saini Wins at Trois-Rivières, Clinches MX-5 Cup Championship
Submitted by Berny on Monday, September 10, 2007 - 14:16Mazda General | Mazdaspeed MX-5 | Miata MX-5

TROIS-RIVIÈRES, Que. (Aug. 19, 2007) – Starting on pole and leading all 29 laps, Jason Saini, of Fort Worth, Texas, not only won Round Seven of the SCCA Pro Racing SIRIUS Satellite Radio Mazda MX-5 Cup at the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivièrs, but also clinched the 2007 MX-5 Cup Championship. Todd Buras, of Fort Worth, Texas, and Andrew Caddell, of Graham, Wash., completed the podium.

The MX-5 Cup race at Trois-Rivières might have looked like a breeze for Saini, who lead the entire race unchallenged, but three full-course caution periods for disabled cars on course, made the 45-minute, 44.109-mile race seem like an eternity to the driver of the No. 28 Autobarn Mazda/SafeRacer.com MX-5.
