USF2000 Cooper Tires Winterfest Slated For January At Sebring And Homestead

Junior formula car drivers who want to step up their game in 2011 can get the new season off to a rousing start by competing in the $25,000 Cooper Tires Winterfest, a special five-race series in Florida this coming January organized by the "Cooper Tires Presents the USF2000 National Championship Powered by Mazda."

A driver who makes a New Year's resolution to win more races in 2011 could have two victories under his belt in the new year before all the confetti is swept up in Times Square, as the first two races in the series will be held Monday and Tuesday, Jan. 3-4, on the long course at Sebring International Raceway in Sebring, Fla.

The series then moves to the road course at Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead, Fla. for a race on Wednesday, Jan. 12 and a doubleheader on Thursday, Jan. 13.

The top three finishers in the Championship class will earn $1,000, $750 and $250, respectively, in each of the five races. Each polesitter will receive the series' usual $500 Cooper Tires 'Don't Give Up a Thing' Award. The National class winner will also receive a cash prize of $500 per race.

The overall champion of the series in the Championship class will receive a $10,000 certificate that can be used for entries throughout the 2011 USF2000 National Championship season.

Officials will enforce a three-set maximum tire rule for the Sebring event and a four-set maximum tire rule for the Homestead tripleheader. The 2010 rulebook will be utilized, although the National class cars' ECU maps will be slightly different than in 2010 to more closely match the Championship class' cars' horsepower.

A one-time registration fee of $350 per driver is required to earn points and prizes in the Winterfest. Race-entry fees, licensing requirement and the

complete schedule can be obtained by calling the series' office at (941) 723-3900 or e-mailing info@USF2000.com. That information will also be posted on the series' Web site at USF2000.com.

"The Cooper Tires Winterfest is an excellent opportunity for teams and drivers to get started on their working relationship and get some good seat time in during the pre-season for a very reasonable budget," noted Dan Andersen, the series' promoter.

Andersen added that he expects to release the 2011 schedule for the "Cooper Tires Presents the USF2000 National Championship Powered by Mazda" shortly. He hinted that there will be some exciting new venues added for 2011 to the series' already impressive schedule of high-profile events that give the series' drivers and sponsors prime exposure.
