Our friends at AcceleRace Motorsports will be returning to competition on the Streets of St. Petersburg this coming weekend. As if the Cooper Tires Presents the USF2000 National Championship Powered by Mazda didn’t have a large enough field already, AcceleRace will be adding at least one more car to the grid. It’s uncertain right now just what type of car they will enter. The team does have a Championship class car as well as FC and FE cars. Which they run, I think, will depend upon the driver they sign.

National Class Champions Start the Year Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Series, presented by Mazda
Louisville, KY – After spending much of the off-season preparing its fleet of F2000 machines, AcceleRace Motorsports heads to St Petersburg, Florida to begin its 2012 effort with the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Series, presented by Mazda.
After missing the first event at Sebring due to Sponsor Functions and commitments, the 2010 National Class Champion Team, sponsored by imagePRO, SUBE SPORTS, Hi-Rise Equipment, and Sabelt, is eager to start their 2012 and add to an already stout field.
“We spent the entire off-season streamlining our team organization, bringing in International talent from Spain and Denmark to the team, who have brought both our Championship Class and National Class programs to a higher, more professional level.”, stated Team Principle ML Padden, “Both John and Soren have found some more speed and durability to our cars, and we are very excited to see how we stack up to the field.”
With only a couple seats still available on the team, AcceleRace Motorsports is still talking to several drivers to join the 2012 campaign, and the calls continue to come in.
