MINNEAPOLIS, MN. – The 2012 Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda campaign concluded for JDC MotorSports this past weekend (September 14-15), with a strong showing at VIRginia International Raceway. Neil Alberico and Scott Hargrove ended their rookie seasons in fine fashion, with the Californian standing on the podium in Round 13 with a runner-up finish, before adding a fifth-place finish in Round 14, while the Canadian came home fifth and fourth in the two races. Fellow rookie Michael Johnson also displayed good skill with finishes of 11th and 12th in the twin bill. Team newcomer Luca Forgeois rebounded from a tough Race One to end the doubleheader with a 12th-place result.
Returning to their cockpits on Saturday morning, the goal was simple for JDC racers...move forward. Alberico promptly did that via a superb launch when the green flag waved for the 14-lap race, avoiding some first turn carnage to vault into second place. Hargrove likewise was impressive in his No. 38 Analytic Systems/Race Energy/Skip Barber Racing School/Red Line Oil/JDC MotorSports racing steed, joining the fight for a top-five position. Behind the lightning start duo, Johnson was immediately involved in a battle for positions just outside the top-10, and Forgeois fought to hold his position. In what was an exciting caution-free race, Alberico repeatedly held off spirited challenges from behind, scoring a well deserved first visit to the series podium with a second-place finish. Hargrove was the next JDC car to the line, adding a fifth-place result to his ever-growing resume. Johnson, who is paralyzed from the chest down following motorcycle racing crash several years ago, ended up just missing his second career top-10, taking the checkered flag in 12th. Forgeois, having lost a lap to the leaders, was 23rd.
