Jace Denmark will remain with Pabst Racing for his second season in USF Pro 2000, which will mark his fourth year with the team.
The 19-year-old American spent two campaigns in USF2000 driving for Pabst, making the podium once as a rookie then winning four races and coming third in the standings in 2022. He stepped up to USFP2000 this year with the team and finished seventh in the third-tier championship.
His best race result was a second place at Mid-Ohio, and he claimed two third places and a pole position from the first six races of the campaign.
“Super excited to be back with Pabst Racing for the 2024 USFP2000 season,” said Denmark.
“I can’t wait to start the work needed to make our next season great with my family at Pabst. Coming back for a second year with tons of seasoning will be a great step forward towards my career and the legacy of Pabst Racing.”
Team owner Augie Pabst added: “Having Jace return for 2024 is a testament to the team and driver relationship that we’ve developed since he started with us in 2021. I can’t wait to see Jace atop the podium throughout the coming season.”
Pabst ran two full-time entries this year, and Denmark is the first driver to be confirmed as being on the 2024 grid. Yet to announce his plans for next year is Simon Sikes, who tested with Pabst post-season and earned a $433,200 (£347,756) scholarship to race in USFP2000 after winning the 2023 USF2000 title with the team.
