Monrovia, California (Tuesday, July 27, 2017) – 14-year-old Steven Aghakani won for the first time in a Lamborghini Huracán on Sunday at Buttonwillow while participating in the National Auto Sport Association (NASA) SoCal Region. The California native will also be attending this upcoming weekend’s LSTNA event at Watkins Glen International to conduct meetings regarding his future plans and to support the rest of the team’s drivers.
Aghakani Was Thrilled with His First-Place Finish and Thankful to All of His Supporters.
“The heat was exhausting,” Aghakani said. “We had some mechanical challenges, but all the hard work and perseverance paid off. It feels so incredible to be holding this first-place trophy and celebrating with my crew and sponsors. I am so happy to be first in the southern region and to be moving my driving status to pro! I can’t thank everyone enough for all the support they have shown me to get to this point.”
Team Owner Shane Seneviratne Took a Moment to Congratulate Steven Aghakani on His First Win with the Team.
