Brownsburg, Ind. – John Cummiskey Racing traveled to the 2.3-mile, 17-turn Barber Motorsports Park in Leeds, Ala. for Rounds 3 and 4 of the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda series season. Below are results and reactions from drivers Bayley Mickler, Kris Wright and Colin Kaminsky.

Bayley Mickler, Perth, Australia (No. 33 Regency Food Services)
Q1 – 13th, (1:24.5920)
Race 1 – 24th place, (16/19 laps, Retired/Mechanical)
Q2 – 17th, (1:24.6576)
Race 2 – 20th place, (14/17 laps)

“We were really starting to find some speed from the No. 33 Regency Food Services car, but couldn’t find any luck in either of the races. In Race 1 I was hit from behind in Turn 5 which damaged some suspension and we couldn’t continue, and in Race 2 I had nowhere to go (during the six-car crash right after the green flag fell) and suffered damage to the left rear wheel of the car. John Cummiskey and Jeff Campbell did an incredible job to repair the damage on pit road in less than five minutes and I was able to continue, but we lost three laps there. This was my first time in a USF2000 car and I had a great experience. I am looking forward to getting back into one soon, hopefully with JCR at Indianapolis in two weeks. I want to thank John and the entire JCR crew for giving me the opportunity to race and for giving me a good race car. Hopefully next time we work together our luck is better!”

Kris Wright, Pittsburgh (No. 34 Wright Automotive/MasterTech/PPG)
Q1 – 17th, (1:24.9132)
Race 1 – Career-best 13th, (19/19 laps)
Q2 – 15th, (1:24.5022)
Race 2 – 19th, (17/17 laps)

“I thought we had a really great car in Race 1. I was able to drive some really consistent laps and made some good forward progress. In Race 2 I was able to avoid the accident just after the start, but trying to get out of everyone’s way I lost a couple of spots and couldn’t get them back. Overall the car got better as the weekend went on, and that’s just as important as where we finished. I’m looking forward to Indianapolis in two weeks. The chance to race at a place like the Indianapolis Motor Speedway will be a career highlight for sure.”

Colin Kaminsky, Homer Glen, Ill. (No. 27 Slick Locks/Kaminsky Racing)
Q1 – 18th, (1:25.2763)
Race 1 – 19th, (19/19 laps)
Q2 – 18th, (1:24.6948)
Race 2 – 15th, (17/17 laps)

“This was my first time at Barber Motorsports Park and it is such a unique challenge – almost like being on a roller coaster with all of the turns and changes in elevation. I just wanted to be consistent, stay out of trouble and gain more experience. Indianapolis is going to be fun. I participated in the Chris Griffis test last October and turned 111 laps, so for the first time this season I’m going to be comfortable with the track from the start. It should be a great weekend and it’s always a big deal to race at Indianapolis."
