Josh Green will step up to Indy Pro 2000 next year with Turn 3 Motorsport, the same team he drove for in USF2000 this season.
The 19-year-old won the Team USA Scholarship two years ago after being the title runner-up in the F1600 Championship Series, which gave him the opportunity to race Formula Fords in the United Kingdom.
From there he moved into USF2000, contesting the 2020 season with Cape Motorsports and coming sixth in the standings with three podiums. He then claimed a win with Turn 3 this year.
“It’s been an honor to represent Turn 3 Motorsport in USF2000, and we as a team made massive improvements throughout the season,” said Green.
“Peter [Dempsey, team boss] and I have worked closely throughout the end of the season and into pre-season testing, and I’m confident we will continue to fight up front throughout next season.
“As well, I’m excited and interested in the new challenge of the [upgraded] IP-22 chassis. I’m super excited to get back on track after this short winter off-season!”
Green is the second driver to announce they will be racing in IP2000 in 2022, after YouTuber Casey Putsch who will drive for Legacy Autosport. An ugrade kit for the current car will debut next year, and feature the halo cockpit protection device.
“It’s fantastic to have Josh returning with us for a second season and have him move up to Indy Pro 2000,” said Turn 3 owner Peter Dempsey.
“Having worked closely with Josh over the past season, I feel like he is more than ready for the next step in his career, and I know how determined he is to make it a successful campaign. Josh finished out the 2021 season being one of the strongest drivers in the USF2000 series. We are looking to carry that momentum into next season and keep pushing for great results throughout 2022.
“It’s going to be a new challenge for the team with the new car being brought in, but we are prepared to give Josh the tools he needs to compete for the championship title.”
