2016 Watkins Glen Preview!

The US Formula 1000 Championship Fueled by Sunoco heads into the home stretch with the final two rounds of the regular season this weekend at Watkins Glen International!  Alex Mayer still holds a huge lead over Pete Frost.  Jose Gerardo and Glenn Cooper are not too far behind Frost and could be a factor in the championship when each driver’s worst two regular season races are dropped.  Watkins Glen has been completely repaved in the off-season and if the weather cooperates, we could see a new track record.

Mid-Ohio 2016 Race Report Posted

At The 2016 US Formula 1000 Championship Fueled by Sunoco began the second half of the season with the annual return to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course this past weekend. Because Mid-Ohio will be hosting the 2016 National Championship Runoffs in September, the series experienced its largest field of the year, even drawing from as far away as California. After two sessions of qualifying, Alex Mayer was once again at the front of the grid but was joined on the front row by series newcomer Nicho Vardis. West coast driver Gary Hickman was able to qualify 3rd in his first visit to the track.

2015 Daytona Championship Finale Race Report Posted!


The race got off to a rough start for outside polesitter Kevin Roggenbuck when he was pushed wide as the field entered turn one.  His car got up on the curbing which damaged the sidepod and broke the oil cooler.  The oil leak sprayed on the hot exhaust and caused a devastating fire, ending Roggenbuck's race without making a lap.

Championship finale at Daytona!

 

The Hoosier Tire US Formula 1000 Championship Fueled by Sunoco will crown the 2015 champion at the Sportscar Club of America National Championship Runoffs on the high banks of Daytona International Speedway.  The action kicks off with 4 days of pre-testing open to teams starting this Thursday September 17. Round 1 of 4 official qualifying sessions commences on Monday September 21.  It will all come down to the spectacular finale race on Saturday September 26.  Like last year, points are doubled at the finale meaning a total of 56 points are available to a driver that wins from the pole and sets the fastest lap.  Although J.R. Osborne leads the standings going into the finale, after each driver drops their worst two finishes, there are three drivers with a shot at taking the championship.  Despite leading the points for most of the season, a disastrous weekend at Pittsburgh dropped Alex Mayer to second in the standings but still within striking distance.  Meanwhile, Jeremy Hill had been lurking in a distant 4th place until a strong weekend and race win at Pittsburgh put him into 3rd place with a chance at the overall championship.
