Johan Schwartz will champion the No. 66 Honda Civic from Shea Racing Aug. 11-13 for his fourth race of the season in the Pirelli World Challenge Series TCA class.
Schwartz is sponsored by the CAS group, Instrumart, Heeltoe Automotive and PCAP: Prostate Cancer Awareness Project. John McAleer from CAS Group and Instumart have partnered with Schwartz since his Pirelli World Challenge Series championship winning season last year and have continued their support this season.
“I am excited to get back on the track with World Challenge,” Schwartz says. “It hasn’t been the season I had hoped for coming off of a championship last year. I am looking forward to racing Utah. I like the track and I think it will suit the Honda very well.”
“A big thank you to Shea Racing for the opportunity to race with them and my sponsors this year, who understand the challenges of racing at times. I’m looking for a good weekend and the opportunity to give good exposure to Shea Racing and all our sponsors.”
Heeltoe Automotive, the official parts supplier of Shea Racing has also stepped up as the primary on the Honda Racing HPD Civic. Heeltoe Automotive specializes in Acura and Honda performance parts.
“Johan’s addition to the team will be beneficial in many ways. We look forward to having Johan pilot our Heeltoe Automotive, Honda Racing HPD Civic Si,” said co-owner, Shea Holbrook.

PCAP: The PCAP Mission is to significantly increase the prostate cancer survivor rate by dramatically increasing the rate of early detection, with the objective that that no man experiences a surprise, post-metastasis prostate cancer diagnosis.
PCAP does this through awareness events around the country and through its free early detection tool, ProstateTracker. Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer among men; approximately 240,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer in the United States alone every year – one man every 2.63 minutes, and roughly 30,000 die each year from the disease – one man every 17.52 minutes. The good news is that research shows that prostate cancer is very treatable, but only if it discovered early, before it has metastasized. www.thepcap.org
