Star Mazda Qualifying Session Rained Out, Race Today
Submitted by Dan Mazzella on Friday, March 18, 2005 - 9:26am

Heavy rain washed out the qualifying session for the opening race of the Star Mazda Championship at Sebring International Raceway on Thursday. Forty-two drivers have entered Friday's 20-lap event, they will be placed in the line up based on their fastest time posted during Wednesday's two official practice sessions.

Friday's weather forecasts predict improved conditions across central florida ahead of the series scheduled start time of 2:40 PM Eastern Standard Time.

RotaryNews.com will bring you race coverage as in years past on Sebring, and other races this season. Plus, we will be teaming up with Hearn Motorsports to bring you a from-the-racer's seat perspective on the series. Hearn Motorsports owner Richie Hearn is based in Las Vegas, Nev. He has tapped Matt Jaskol to be the driver of his No. 70 Hearn Motorsports entry in the Star Mazda Series.

Hearn's debut as a team owner last season was quite successful despite missing the opening round at Sebring. He guided series' rookie Raphael Matos (Belo Horizonte, Brazil) to two podium finishes and a pole position on his way to seventh in the 2004 Star Mazda season championship. Thienes finished 14th in the championship, third in the Expert Class, after joining Hearn mid-way through the season. Giving further weight to his debut, Hearn’s fellow team owners gave him the coveted President's Award for his accomplishments over the season.

For 2005, Hearn continues to develop his sophomore operation. The 1995 Formula Atlantic champion is speaking with several drivers and sponsors concerning opportunities for additional Star Mazda entries for the season.
