It was another winning weekend for Copeland Motorsports, this time at the Portland International Raceway. Taking on the TC Americas program, Mason Filippi and Tyler Maxson provided one win and four podium results over the weekend to once again show the true strength of the Maryland based team. Filippi led the way in his Hyundai Veloster N TCR with a win and a third while Maxson garnered two third place finishes, but challenged for the win on both days of competition.
“It was a great weekend in Oregon and time to head back east for our next event in only two weeks’ time,” explained Dean Copeland. “A big congrats to Mason for another win, his second with Copeland Motorsports, as well as Tyler for another job well done in his rookie season.”
Mason Filippi started his weekend off right by securing the TCR pole position and inside row one starting spot for Saturday’s wheel-to-wheel action. Holding the position, even though he did not have the fastest car on track, Filippi steered his Veloster N to the checkered flag, scoring his second win of the season since joining the team only two events ago. Looking to repeat his success on Sunday, Filippi found his way entrenched in a three-way battle for the win and though he was unable to come out on top, the Copeland Motorsports driver was back on the podium, this time in P3.
