A Strong Program for TJ Speed Heads to St. Petersburg for USF Pro 2000 Opener

Share this Post

Making the move from the FR Americas Championship to the USF Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Cooper Tires, TJ Speed brings one of the most winning resumes to the USF Pro Championships Presented by Cooper Tires program in recent years. Bring that resume along with three drivers in the likes of Lirim Zendelli, Francesco Pizzi, and Christian Weir and a strong program is even stronger with the first green flag of the 2023 season set to fly this weekend at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.

Leaving behind a pair of Team Championships in 2022 and 2023, as well as Driver Championships in the same two seasons, Tim Neff has transitioned his title-winning team into the USF Pro Championships program in 2023 with a strong trio.

“The goal all last season and into the off-season when we were building the program was to make sure that it had the capabilities to win,” expressed Neff. “We have added crew, equipment, and three talented drivers that can not only win this season but have a bright future in motorsports for years to come. Winning in racing is never easy, but I think we have built the proper program to make a run at race wins and podium results from the get-go in 2023.”

Never short of driver determination for success, the TJ Speed trio have been pounding laps in the off-season preparing for their 2023 campaign. With their final preseason on track test today at the Sebring International Raceway, TJ Speed will officially begin their 2023 campaign alongside the NTT INDYCAR Series this weekend at the St. Pete Grand Prix.

With on track action beginning Friday and running through the end of the day Sunday, be sure to follow the TJ Speed social media pages throughout the weekend to keep up to date with news, photos, results, and more.
