Alberico traveled to the technical Mid-Ohio as one of the hottest drivers in the Mazda Road to Indy program thanks two wins two in the past three races, and the talented up-and-comer promptly wasted little time continuing his run of form. Piloting the No. 2 Racelite Protection/Bondurant School of High Performance Driving/eFormulaCarNews.com/ J&M Trophies/OMP America/Cape Motorsports entry, he alternated between first and second fastest in event testing and practice before securing the pole position for race one of the triple bill with the top time in the lone qualifying session.
With two victories from two starts during the IZOD IndyCar Series weekend, Alberico was excited to have a third opportunity to stand on the top-step of the podium on Sunday morning. Starting P2 for Round 10, things unfortunately did not go according plan. The 20 year-old was involved in a multi-car incident just as the green flag waved, ending his race prior to the completion of a lap.
Despite the less than desirable end to the Mid-Ohio event, Alberico exited the weekend with five wins in the 10 races contested thus far, leading the series, and more importantly sitting second in the title chase.
The quest for the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda crown and a scholarship to advance up the Mazda Road to Indy ladder resumes for Alberico on September 6-7, with Rounds 11 and 12 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in his home state of California.
