USF2000 race winner Yuven Sundaramoorthy will move into Indy Pro 2000 in 2022 with the Pabst Racing team he has raced with since 2019.

He has raced in USF2000 for three full seasons, each with Pabst, becoming a race-winner in his third year and keeping a narrow 2021 title challenge alive until the final rounds with four wins and nine podiums after two years of 12th in the points.

Pabst also ran at the front in IP2000 in 2021, taking its only full-time driver Hunter McElrea to third in the standings.

“I’m really excited to take the next step up on the ladder and be closer to IndyCar,” said Sundaramoorthy. “Also happy to be back with Pabst Racing and I feel like we have a really good chance to bring home the championship.”

In addition to racing, the 18-year-old will also be in his sophomore year at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he studies computer science and is part of the student design Formula SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) team.

“Being a part of Yuven’s development over the last few years has been a great journey,” Pabst team owner Augie Pabst added.

“In 2021, he really put it all together and delivered solid results. We are confident that we will see the same as he makes the move to Indy Pro in 2022.”

Sundaramoorthy is the fifth confirmed IP2000 driver for 2022, and the third rookie alongside DEForce Racing’s USF2000 champion Porto and Nolan Siegel.
