Webster, NY – Just 49 points out of second place in the TC Teams’ Championship, BERG Racing comes off of a dramatic win at Utah Motorsports Campus and looks to go two-for-two at the Grand Prix of Monterey at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

“Our win in Utah is without question the highlight of our year,” said John Weisberg, team owner. “We couldn’t be happier with the performance of our REDCOM Mazda MX-5’s at Utah Motorsports Campus. To win by 0.055 of a second, the closest-ever finish in Pirelli World Challenge history, is another great milestone for BERG Racing and REDCOM Laboratories.”

Finishing on the top step at Utah didn’t just bolster BERG Racing’s team championship position, as Mazda has now taken the lead in the manufacturers’ championship, one point ahead of BMW.

2016-10-06-berg-3“We’re always thrilled to win with Mazda hardware in TC, and to have our win in Utah push Mazda into the lead of the manufacturers standings with one race weekend left is fantastic,” Weisberg said. “Mazda Raceway typically suits the excellent handling of the MX-5, so we’re confident our REDCOM machines can help propel Mazda to yet another manufacturers’ championship!”

BERG Racing is sponsored by REDCOM Laboratories, which provides secure and interoperable communications solutions to the military, government agencies, and first responders. The Pirelli World Challenge will be welcoming first responders and military personnel with free admission to the races on October 8 and 9.

Dinah Weisberg, driver of the #50 TC Mazda MX-5, is the Executive Vice President of REDCOM Laboratories, and will be running at Mazda Raceway for the first time. “REDCOM has a strong, long-standing relationship with all elements of the Department of Defense, as well as federal, state and local agencies. I’m excited and proud that we are able to be a part of an event honoring those that serve us,” said Dinah Weisberg. “The fact that the team has been doing so well brings more awareness to the REDCOM brand and our unique solutions.”

Salinsky Racing with FUSE Lenses and Regenexx Cayman and Marilyn Marcus, D.O., are equally looking forward to debuting in TCA competition at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

2016-10-06-berg-2“Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is an amazing facility,” said Jay Salinsky, driver of the #16 FUSE Lenses / Regenexx Cayman Mazda MX-5. “We return to Monterey for the second year in a row, but this year we’re in our BERG Racing TCA car, not last year’s TCB car. We’re looking forward to an amazing weekend at this track!”

With Salinsky Racing partners FUSE Lenses and Regenexx Cayman returning next year, “Dr. Jay” feels the return on investment with their 2016 program is clear.

“It’s been a very successful year for our partners FUSE Lenses and Regenexx Cayman,” said Salinsky. “We’re very impressed with the quality of the field in Pirelli World Challenge, and think that brand activation with the fans at the track is among the best in the world, which we feel attracts some of the best teams and partners – especially in Touring Car,” Salinsky added. “We’re excited to head into 2017 with FUSE Lenses and Regenexx Cayman onboard once again!”

FUSE Lenses plans to throw a trackside party at the FUSE booth at 5-8 P.M. after the races, Saturday, October 8. Drinks, pizza and a DJ will be on site which is open to fans, drivers and crews. The FUSE girls will also be on site for autographs, photos, and prize giveaways throughout the weekend.

About Fuse Lenses

With over 35 years of combined experience in the optical industry, it just made sense that owners Brandon Dill and Jon Martino teamed up to create Fuse Lenses. It all started when a mutual friend scratched the lenses in his perfectly good, quality frame. Not wanting to dish out the money for a completely new pair, he asked if it would be possible to replace the lenses instead. That was the beginning of Fuse Lenses.

Since then, Fuse has been dedicated to creating the highest quality lenses for all the brands you love – brands that you never want leave the house without, but may have you feeling cast aside due to a discontinued style or lack of replacement options. Over the years, we’ve grown not only our products, but also our community of athletes, advocates, and trusted Fuse partners. We know your sunglasses get beat up – dropped, sat on, and taken into the harshest elements – and they don’t always stand up to the challenge.

That’s why we still continuously work to develop stronger scratch resistance, more durable coatings and crisper optics. We want to not only provide the vision you expect for your high quality frames, but also become a trusted ally in all of your everyday adventures.
