Alliance Racing’s line-up for the 2020 United States Formula 4 season has grown to five cars with three recent signings.
Will Edwards, son of team founders Toney and Kimberley and a former Midgets racer, remains with the family-run team for his second full season after taking a best finish of 14th last year.
“In 2018, when I started in F4, I had zero kart experience and was off the pace,” said Edwards.
“I still have far less experience than others but feel I am making strides forward. Decreasing the gap to the leader with each weekend has been my goal, and I have been doing that. I have set new goals for 2020 and can’t wait to get the season started.”
Successful karter Will Holtz will make a full-time move to single-seaters with Alliance, having made a winning debut in the Lucas Oil Formula Car Race Series at the end of last year.
“I am super excited to join Alliance Racing,” Holtz said. “After seven years of karting, I am ready for a new experience and challenge.
Team owner Toney Edwards added:?”Will joined us at a recent test in Texas and quickly adapted to the team and car. He was comfortable in the car and that showed in his lap times. A few more days of testing before the start of the season are planned, and we can’t wait for the first green flag of 2020.”
The least experience addition to Alliance’s line-up is David Dalton Jr, who had one year of karting under his belt before racing in Lucas Oil FCRS in 2019. He took a win, then joined US F4 for the final two rounds with Group-A Racing and took a best finish of 12th.
“Though the timeline of my racing career is short, I?ve made sure to prepare myself accordingly to be ready for an opportunity like this and?to be able to work with such a dedicated team,” said Dalton.
“I?m thoroughly excited because I know the team will always make sure to provide the resources I need to excel and extract everything I can out of the car. I have nothing but optimism joining Alliance for 2020. I made my debut in F4 with a car that was good enough for me to show what I can do out the box, and Alliance Racing noticed my performance.
“In so many ways, they showed they have the confidence in my driving and my character to bring me onto their team. I have that same confidence in them, when I look at their 2019 results and the progress they have made this off-season.”
