Filgueiras Wins National Class at Toronto

Toronto – There are two weekends on the 2016 Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda season schedule where the drivers have to up their games - to really intensify their on-track focus. The first was the season opener in St. Pete. The second is the Streets of Toronto, north of the US border. 

With the Verizon IndyCar Series’ decision to change parts of the street course for 2016, 22 year-young Floridian native Eric Filgueiras observed the new conditions during the driver’s track walk and took note that the changes would be a challenge to navigate. With the team surviving carnage filled practice sessions, the #22 Litpen Energy Solutions car would roll into race one 1st in class and 17th overall. After two cautions and hard racing from everyone, Filgueiras came across the stripe for the final time 1st in class and 14th overall. 

Race two would be a similar scenario, with chaos striking right off the line from the start, and lots of attrition to dodge. Ultimately the Spencer Racing pilot would bring the car home clean for 2 wins in class and 13th overall in race two- a season best!

“We knew this event would be a challenge but we kept our nose clean and improved every time. Our Spencer Racing machine performed exactly the way we wanted and the weekend turned out well for us.” 

All of the team’s and Eric’s success is all possible by great Partners. A Big thank you goes out to Lipten Energy Solutions,Kovi ConsultingSPEEDCOM CommunicationsV12 Vinyards A&B GraphicsRaceQuipBELL Helmets and RacerInk
