Jace Denmark demonstrated his ability this weekend at St. Pete to kick off his 2023 USF Pro Championship campaign with good points and securing third place in the Championship standings. Denmark achieved his first podium of the season with a P3 in Race 2, and had a top five finish in Race 1, moving from 8th to 5th.
What Jace had to say:
“It was a tough race, really hot. The track conditions were a lot different (from Saturday) so grip offline was close to none. It was like sand. That was difficult for passing. I tried to go around the outside of Pizzi in Turn One on one of the restarts and just couldn’t make it stick because there was no rubber out there. On the third restart, I finally got around him and started to hunt down Kiko. The top three of us were so fast we pretty much got spread out. I missed fast lap by like five-thousandths or something, and maybe I should have held my breath on the straightaway or something. It was a good race for me – started third and finished third, that’s all I can ask for. We need to work on the pace of the car out of the gate but really positive overall.”
