Jace Denmark claimed victory for Pabst Racing in Race 1 of the Cooper Tires USF2000 Road America Grand Prix after a thrilling battle for the win. Denmark kept calm and cool, taking opportunities as they came and moving from fourth to second in the last few minutes of the race. On the final lap, Denmark used the draft to slip past the race leader and take home P1.
What Jace had to say:
“It was a tough one, definitely well earned as there was a lot of racing going on. The start wasn’t very good but we got back to fight for the podium halfway through and then, just as opportunities came through, I took them. I made my way up from fourth to second and second to first. For the team, it doesn’t hit home more than this race. It is so awesome to win here. It’s beautiful weather, a beautiful track, our hometown race – everything just came together perfectly for a one-two.”
