Tom Spehert Gets Second Career Win

Tom Spehert made huge changes during the off-season in order to best reflect the full-scale driver he represents. Spehert drives the Hidecki Mutoh car and has immersed himself in Mutoh's native Japan, speaking to the press only in Japanese through an interpreter and eating only sushi, sashimi and saki. It is clearly working as Spehert driving for the newly formed Spehert-Foyt Racing team handly won the first round of the new IndySlotCar Series at HO Road America in the Papa Murphy's Grand Prix.
