TORONTO, Ont., Canada – Following a weekend at Road America that saw him race well although he wasn’t able to come home with a big result, Darren Keane is eager to return behind the wheel of his No. 36 Newman Wachs USF2000 machine this weekend as the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda stages Rounds 8 & 9 on the streets of Toronto.

Racing in front of the knowledgeable and passionate Canadian Fans, the USF2000 double-header will be part of the Honda Indy Toronto race weekend as all three rungs of the Mazda Road to Indy Presented by Cooper Tires race north of the border. 

The 11-turn, 1.786-mile concrete lined circuit that travels through the streets of Toronto played host to a breakthrough drive for Keane last year as he raced his way forward to claim fourth. Having shown his racecraft on the tricky circuit, Keane is now looking ahead to driving to a podium result this weekend.

Despite competing on a track where every mistake could be race-ending, Keane excels along the close quarters that a street course provides. The first race of the 2018 season saw Keane take advantage of his confidence along the streets of St. Petersburg where he drove to his first podium result in just his second year competing in the series

Now moving on to the final street course format event of the season, Keane is one to watch out for in the 19-car USF2000 field.

"Toronto is definitely my favorite track that we go to,” said Keane. “I just love getting close to the wall and having that added pressure that there is a small margin for error. It makes me perform well. I had a really good race here last year and finished fourth, so I am hoping for an equally good result this weekend but of course to get on the podium this time around!”

The Toronto weekend which is part of the Honda Indy Toronto IndyCar event will begin with practice (8:40 AM ET) and qualifying 1 (8:00 AM) on Friday with the second round of qualifying (8:00 AM) and Race 1 (11:45 AM) on Saturday. The final race will be staged Sunday morning at 9:45 AM and all weekend track activity can be viewed at or at
