Steven Aghakhani and Jacob Eidson picked up right where they left off two weeks ago in the No. 6 SADA Systems US RaceTronics Lamborghini with a convincing victory Saturday in the first round of this weekend’s IMSA Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America doubleheader at VIRginia International Raceway (VIR).



The first-year teammates led every lap of Saturday’s 50-minute sprint on the 3.27-mile VIR circuit for their second-consecutive victory in the IMSA Lamborghini Super Trofeo series.



One race ago at Road America in Wisconsin, Aghakhani, 17, co-drove with his Eidson for his first professional race win on the opening weekend of 2020 Super Trofeo competition.



After winning his first overall and Pro-division pole in qualifying earlier on Saturday, Aghakhani took control of the race from the start.



“We came out and got pole in qualifying, started the race in first, ended the race in first, and that’s how it should be,” Aghakhani said. “We went out there and did our job and I can’t thank the SADA Systems US RaceTronics team enough. The car was amazing from the finish to the end.”
 


Aghakhani handed off the No. 6 Lamborghini at the halfway point to Eidson who continued the dominant run to the finish. Eidson took the checkered flag 3.817 seconds ahead of the second-place finisher for his first victory at VIR.




“It feels great to finally get that win here at VIR,” Eidson said. “Steven made my job really easy. He built a really good gap, I just had to go out there, keep my head down and do my job. Staying clean was the name of the game, and I just have to thank US RaceTronics, SADA Systems and everybody who has put their support into this program. Super stoked and hopefully there will be more to come.”



The second and final 50-minute race of the VIR weekend goes green today, Sunday, August 22, at 12:55 p.m. EDT and can be viewed live at www.IMSA.tv.



“It was a great first race and I am really excited to come out again tomorrow and do it again for the second day,” Aghakhani said.
