ELKHART LAKE, Wis. – Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing driver Matthew Brabham added to the team’s Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda wins during the triple-header at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, August 16-18.


Brabham, driving the No. 83, claimed victory in Rounds 8 and 9 at the 4-mile, 14-turn road course. With his two wins, Brabham took over the top spot in the driver points standing from teammate Spencer Pigot.

“Overall, I am really, really happy with how the weekend went,” Brabham said. “It is really fantastic to be back in front in the championship, and I am planning to stay there for the rest of the year.”


Also picking up two wins was team driver Henrik Furuseth in the National class. After an accident in the first race, the young driver of the No. 32 came back to win the second and third races of the weekend. He also set the National Class lap record at the track.


“The car was very, very good, and I have to thank everyone at Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing for their preparation all weekend.”

Pigot, driving the No. 2, leads the series in most overall wins with five this season. He was a bit disappointed with his weekend. A late race blocking penalty in Race 1 resulted in an uncharacteristic 15th place finish. But he bounced back with two podium finishes. He now trails Brabham by 14 points (248-234).

“It was a very difficult weekend,” Pigot said. “We struggled a bit to find a good balance in the first two races but the guys worked really hard to get it right for Saturday's race. I have to thank them a lot for that because we figured a few things and showed the pace we had by setting fastest lap and finishing second. The low point of the weekend was the penalty I got in the first race which set us back quite a bit in the points. I know we'll be strong at Baltimore and ready to fight for a few more wins.”


Trent Hindman, driving the No. 3, also had a tough weekend. He finished fourth, sixth and eighth. He now sits sixth in the point standings and only a few points shy of the fifth-place position.

“Road America was definitely a tough weekend for us,” Hindman said. “We had some issues with the car during practice and qualifying that we were trying to figure out. I am just happy that I kept the nose clean and finished in the top 10 in all three races. Overall I am pleased with how it went. Big thanks to the team, and a massive thanks to Steve Knapp of Elite Engines for resolving the engine issues we had during practice. Now, on to Baltimore.”


The USF2000 series drivers have two weeks off before joining the IZOD IndyCar Series on the street of Baltimore, Maryland, August 31-September 2. For more information, please visit www.usf2000.com.
