Brownsburg, IN. (June 1, 2016) - While the journey from race shop to race track was short, the journey from start to finish was a little longer at the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda Freedom 75 at Lucas Oil Raceway. 
 

The Carb Night Classic featured the USF2000 cars racing on the .686-mile oval in Brownsburg, Ind., with the Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires and USAC Silver Crown cars. This was the only oval race for the USF2000 championship.

Both John Cummiskey Racing cars started in the top 10 at Lucas Oil Raceway as Ayla Agren started sixth in her No. 33 Energima car and Lucas Kohl started tenth in his No. 34 Bellko Trading car.

After a caution free race and some dicing for position, Agren finished eighth while Kohl finished tenth. This was Agren's second oval race and Kohl's first. Both drivers gained valuable experience for future racing on the Mazda Road to Indy.
 

Agren: "Finished eighth here at Lucas Oil Raceway, started sixth so obviously you don't want to fall back, but I made a mistake at the start. I was good at the start but I just went too low and couldn't carry the speed through and then dropped two spots from there. I felt decent for the first 30 laps and was able to keep up the pace with the guys in front but just wasn't quite there when we started lapping cars, so we've got to work on that. But the Energima car definitely felt good. We kept improving every session we were out there and I feel a lot more comfortable now on an oval than I did heading into this weekend so I'm bringing the positive side of it when I head to Mid-Ohio for testing."

Kohl: "It was a tough race, my first time only turning left and everything was different. We had a hard time setting up the car and getting used to the oval feeling so I think it was a good experience with a lot of learning and we were able to score some good points and be in the top ten again with the Bellko Trading car."
 

The next USF2000 race weekend will be at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis., on June 24th-26th. The two races can be followed on the Road to Indy app for iOS and Android, on Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV and at www.roadtoindy.tv.
