Wayside, N.J. – Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing driver Trent Hindman couldn’t have picked a better time to get on a hot streak in Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda competition. With the slow start at the season opener at Sebring International Speedway a distant memory, Hindman comes into this weekend’s triple-header at Road America with a streak of five straight top-five finishes, including a podium at the last race at Mid-Ohio, his first podium of the season.

“Mid-Ohio was a welcome relief”, noted Hindman prior to heading to the airport for the short flight to Wisconsin. “We could have easily lost the momentum we carried into Indianapolis during the break, but the Capes provided me with a great car again and I’m happy I was able to bring home the result. Now we just have to bring that momentum to Road America.”

Road America
At four miles in length, Road America may no longer hold the title of “longest race track in America”, but none of the longer tracks carry the history and cache of the track just outside the sleepy resort town of Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. If there was ever an ideal track for Trent Hindman to run three races, it would be Road America, where he has an average of a third place finish in Skip Barber competition.

"I LOVE Road America. It has always been one of my favorite tracks, but then again I can’t think of anyone who doesn’t like Road America. Although the draft isn’t as strong in a USF2000 car as it is in a Formula Skip Barber, the combination of long straights and high and low speed corners will make for some exciting racing and lots of passes for position."

Drivers hit the track the first official session of the weekend Friday morning at 9:00 a.m. Eastern for Practice. Follow the action with Live Timing and Scoring at www.usf2000.com/livetiming, and follow the action semi-live on Twitter by following @altemus_prime.
