INDIANAPOLIS, IND. – Team Pelfrey is delighted to announce the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda and Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires team has relocated from Palmetto, Fla. to Indianapolis. The two teams will be housed at TKM Inc. under the technical leadership of Thomas Knapp.
The move to Indianapolis alongside the revised team structure that took place mid-season, allows the team to introduce a fresh image throughout the Mazda Road to Indy Presented by Cooper Tires ladder series. “We are thrilled to announce the team relocation to Indianapolis,” said General Manager Jonathan Baker. “This is a prime opportunity for us to move forward and unite under one umbrella and I must say a special thank you to Dale [Pelfrey] who has been extremely supportive and believes in the project.”
Geoff Bushor will manage the F1600 program as Gary Neal will continue to manage the Indy Lights program. “The F1600 series is an important part of developing young drivers into the Mazda Road to Indy ladder series,” said Bushor. “We are grateful for Dale [Pelfrey] and Jonathan [Baker’s] support as we introduce drivers to a sport that is constantly growing in success each year.”
As Team Pelfrey moves to Indianapolis, the team is also announcing the launch of pelfreypower.com which allows fans to interact and keep up-to-date with the team as the race season quickly approaches.
“I could not be more ecstatic to work with Dale [Pelfrey] as we introduce a new image that is uniform across the ladder series. Team Pelfrey is easily growing to be one of the largest teams in the Mazda Road to Indy paddock,” said Neal. “2017 will be an exciting year for all of us.”
