Callum Hedge on Pole in New Jersey

MILLVILLE, N.J. (July 29, 2023) – For the sixth time this season, Callum Hedge will lead the field down the starting grid for lights out at New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJMP) this afternoon. The New Zealander has been unstoppable in Formula Regional Americas Championship Powered by Honda (FR Americas), currently holding a seven-race winning streak in his No. 17 Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport Ligier JS F3. With a 1:18.321 lap, Hedge edged his teammate Ryan Shehan (No. 66 Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport Ligier JS F3) by 0.614-seconds. Shehan is the only driver to finish on the podium in every race this season, and currently sits just 25 points behind Hedge in the championship standings. Oliver Westling (No. 1 JENSEN Ligier JS F3) was third fastest on Hankook tires. The 20-year-old is still searching for his first podium finish of 2023 after finishing fourth on three occasions this season.
