Scott Rettich and RC Enerson both announced their entry into the 2012 USF2000 National Class Championship this morning.
Rettich, a phenom in the Formula Enterprises ranks, will pilot the No. 71 Alliance Autosport Formula Enterprises car, while Enerson, a highly-talented 14-year-old karter and Skip Barber race winner, will drive a ZSports RF02 Van Diemen in the upcoming USF2000 National Championship.
Both drivers make great additions to the increasingly-deep national class field.
Rettich, 27, has been displaying his skills in various FE series over the last several years after spending the 2007-2008 seasons in Star Mazda. Displaying his skills might actually be an understatement. Rettich has been absolutely dominant in FE, winning the SCCA National Championship the last two seasons. In 2011, he won the SCCA Pro Series by claiming nine wins in 10 starts, including six poles.
Rettich recently made his Grand-Am Rolex GT debut driving the Alliance Autosport Porsche GT3 at Daytona in the GT Class.
Enerson — who is the son of Indy Lights team owner Neil Enerson (Team E) — has spent the last several years developing his craft in the karting and Skip Barber ranks, while also testing F1000 cars. More recently, though, Enerson has been planning an attack on the USF2000 National Class via pre-season F2000 testing under the watchful eyes of driver coach Jonatan Jorge. Enerson is a two-time Skip Barber regional race winner and should be one of the youngest drivers in the USF2000 field this season.
