Nick Mancuso has signed with JDC MotorSports for a partial season in the 2011 Star Mazda Championship.
Mancuso tested with JDC at Infineon Raceway in 2009. That season he raced in the SCCA Pro Racing Playboy Mazda MX-5 Cup, logging a best finish of fourth (at both Thunderbolt and Barber). In 2010, the 24-year-old ran one race in the SCCA World Challenge GT Class piloting an Aston Martin DB9 to 17th place at Long Beach.
Mancuso has been working hard to make this deal happen, so it’s great to see him get a shot. Watch for this to be a learning year as he adapts to the open-wheel car and pursues additional funding for a full campaign in 2012.
