Vancouver, BC. – This past weekend Vancouverite Scott Hargrove finished third in the second USF2000 race at the Baltimore Grand Prix in support of the IZOD IndyCar Series. Due to some track changes that resulted in starting positions being determined by point standings rather than qualifying times, Hargrove started the Saturday race in 14th position. He mastered the course changes quickly and finished sixth with the fourth fastest lap time earning him a fourth position start in the Sunday race, despite a collision just before the finish line that resulted in significant damage to the race car. The team worked hard overnight to repair the car and on Sunday Hargrove drove a masterful race resulting in his first USF2000 podium finish on the streets of Baltimore.


“Today we started fourth which was a lot better than our starting spot yesterday. I didn’t quite get the start that I wanted and Scott [Anderson] made an awesome start and got past me. Everything worked out really well and the car was so good, especially after we tore three corners off of the car yesterday. We didn’t have much time to work on the setup and made a few changes and we didn’t have much time to talk about it but every change that we made was awesome. We crossed the line in third for my first [USF2000] podium and I can’t thank everyone enough including the team, the city of Baltimore and my sponsors,” said Hargrove.


A great finish, following the announcement made last week that Hargrove has been nominated for Team Canada’s 2012 scholarship.  The winner will represent Team Canada in the 2012 edition of the Formula Ford Festival at the Brands Hatch Circuit outside of Kent, England, on October 27-28.


One week away, September 14 and 15, Hargrove will have his last chance to impress the selection committee at the Virginia International Raceway road course alongside the American Le Mans Series. Hargrove is driving the #38 car for JDC Motorsport in the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda.  


“I’m looking to end the series with a strong finish,” stated Hargrove.
