PALMETTO, FLA. – The first green flag of the 2014 season is still a few weeks away, but JAY Motorsports is already confident it can challenge for top honors, having signed three race-winning drivers for the 2014 edition of the Copper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda. 2013 series podium finisher Henrik Furuseth joins the Florida-based squad, and will be partnered with Pacific F1600 Championship champion Colton Herta, and F1600 Formula F Championship Series runner-up Adrian Starrantino. JAY Motorsports, having secured its inaugural podium finishes last season, is now ready to fight for wins, the Rookie of the Year award and the overall championship thanks to what is one of the premier driver line-ups in the first rung of the prestigious Mazda Road to Indy program.
JAY Motorsports, since its inception, has prided itself on not only providing its racers with all the tools to be successful and win races, but also training and developing the future stars of motorsports. This coming season the ever-improving squad from Florida will have the chance to do that yet again, joining forces with three talented up-and-coming racers.
Furuseth has quickly established himself as a driver worth keeping an eye on in the North American junior formula car ranks. An unknown quantity when he joined the USF2000 Championship in 2012, the Norwegian wasted little time showcasing his talents, winning the National Class - for Formula Enterprises cars - seven times en route to the class title. The 17-year-old Furuseth further highlighted his talents behind the wheel this past season, taking home two podium finishes as a Championship Class rookie with a single-car team. The stage is now set for Furuseth to contend for a place on the post-race podiums throughout the 2014 campaign.
Despite his young age at 13-years-old, Herta is already adding to the well-known family racing resume. Making the transition to cars this past season after a title-winning run in the karting ranks, the second-generation racer from California was the driver to beat in the Pacific F1600 Championship. Ultimately Herta captured the title as a formula car rookie via 10 wins and 15 podium finishes in 15 races. While Herta is likely to be youngest racer come the season-opener, he is more than ready to fight for the rookie crown.
Winning races is something Starrantino has rapidly figured out how to do. The 19-year-old from California showcased both his pace and racecraft as a formula car rookie in 2012, winning four times in the Skip Barber Racing ranks. Starrantino promptly built on that performance last year, adding three more Skip Barber wins before dueling for the F1600 Formula F Championship Series title until the season finale, ending up second with four more wins on his developing racing resume. Starrantino is now positioned to add to his winning ways and be part of the Rookie of the Year fight in the USF2000 Championship.
