Karting superstar Nick Neri joined the team in the No. 4 USF2000 car only on Wednesday. The 15-year-old from Palmetto, FL was shown in the top 10 both test sessions with an eighth and 10th-fastest time.
Joining the team for both days of testing were Skip Barber Winter Series Champion Jake Eidson in the No. 11 car and Skip Barber standout Adrian Starrantino in the No. 9. Eidson, a 17-year-old from Littleton, CO, shone brightly posting fast enough times for second and third out of over 20 contenders. Starrantino, the 18-year-old from California, also impressed with times showing him in the top 10 for three sessions, as well as a top five.
Motorsports Development driver Estrela had times fast enough for first at a few points during both sessions and was never seen out of the top four. Meanwhile, Skip Barber newcomer Duzanowski was taking his time learning the different car and getting the most out of his practice; he was shown as high as 14th during his time with B.A.R.
Not only did these young open-wheel rising stars get the opportunity to drive around the 2.514-mile road course on the historic track, they had the opportunity to speak with graduates and veterans of the Mazda Road to Indy who provided plenty of words of wisdom. IZOD IndyCar Series driver and 2011 Firestone Indy Lights Champion Josef Newgarden stopped by the Belardi Auto Racing garages and chatted with the young Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Presented by Mazda hopefuls.
