Elkhart Lake, Wis. – Kory Enders felt the highs and lows that come with racing at the Kohler Grand Prix after finishing an impressive fifth place in Race 1 and then getting tangled in an incident in Race 2 that left him in 19th out of the twenty-six Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda contenders.

Enders’ performance in testing held true and led the American to start Race 1 from seventh place on the grid. The race was off to a good start before two full-course cautions that also had drama in-between. Enders was able to keep his #11 DEForce Racing machine clean and finish the race in fifth, matching his best result of the season.

Even though Enders started Race 2 from ninth place, the twenty-year-old was going in with the intentions of bettering his results from the previous race. Race 2 proved to be the most eventful track session of the weekend with drama right from the green flag in Turn One.

Several laps and race incidents later, the action finally caught up to Enders who made contact with the car in front of him who unexpectedly braked under yellow. The front wing of the #11 fell victim to the incident and Enders was forced to limp back to the pits and have the DEForce crew make repairs. A valiant effort to get back in the race and make it up to sixth place was soured when Calvin Ming and Enders made contact in Turn Six. Enders finished the race in 19th. Twelve out of the twenty-six-car field did not finish the race.

Rounds eight and nine of the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda go international to Toronto, Canada for the second street-course of the year July 13-15th.

Driver #11 DEForce Racing Tatuus USF-17:

“Our weekend at Road America went pretty well. I would say we performed extremely well as a team. We had a podium car this weekend but the circumstances didn’t allow that, unfortunately. We were very close with fifth place in the first race and my teammate getting fourth place in the second race. We are very close to getting on the podium and we are working really hard to make that happen in Toronto.”
