DEForce Racing’s USF2000 drivers Mac Clark and Jorge Garciarce will step up to USF Pro 2000 with the team for next weekend’s round at Circuit of the Americas.
The pair lie fourth and eighth respectively in the USF2000 standings, with Clark having won the Freedom 75 – the series’ only oval race – and at Mid-Ohio while Garciarce matched his best result in the most recent race by finishing fourth.
Both IndyCar feeder series conclude at Portland on the first weekend of September, but USFP2000 is sneaking in races away from the IndyCar support bill by heading to COTA.
“I, myself am beyond excited for this opportunity. A massive thank you is in order to all of my 2023 supporters as well as DEForce Racing for making this possible,” said Clark. “Determined to make this coming weekend a positive experience and cement another block on my climb to IndyCar.”
Clark has experience of COTA, having finished on the podium there in USF Juniors last year with DEForce and making the podium there in United States Formula 4 in 2021. Garciarce meanwhile is totally new to the track.
“I am extremely exited to move up to USFP2000 in COTA. It is a nice track and there are great drivers in this category, I just think it’s perfect opportunity for me to learn and improve,” he said.
“And what better than doing it with DEForce Racing, I had a special connection with them this year and they have shown a great level in this category fighting for wins and podiums every race weekend. So I can’t wait to be on track on Friday.”
