Shannon McIntosh has signed with Cape Motorsports w/Wayne Taylor Racing for the upcoming 2011 USF2000 National Championship.

Bill Zahren, aka Pressdog, interviewed McIntosh following the announcement; you can read it here.

McIntosh, 21, who has spent the majority of her career in oval racing, will make the jump to road course, and open-wheel racing, for the 2011 season with hopes of eventually graduating to IndyCar. It goes without saying that this is going to be a big change for her. She’s done quite a bit of testing already (w/JDC Motorports, Juncos Racing and more), though, and now she will begin a rigorous testing program with her new team: Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing.

McIntosh will be driving the No. 2 CM/WTR car which was piloted to a runner-up finish in the 2010 USF2000 National Championship by Patrick McKenna — who has recently graduated to Star Mazda.

Working with Dominic and Nicholas Cape should help ease the transition for the now-Florida resident (formerly Ohio) heading into the opening race at Sebring International Raceway on March 17-18.

    I think your blog has gained importance with the new emphasis on the Road To Indy. Information on upcoming drivers in the feeder series is going to drive interest in Indycar. Thanks for the good info.
