Diego Ferreira will return for his sophomore season in the Pro Mazda Championship, driving for Juncos Racing. The 18-year-old Venezuelan will pilot the No. 57 car.
Ferreira earned “Most Improved Driver of the Year” in 2012 thanks to 14 top-10 finishes en route to sixth-place in the drivers’ championship. He wrapped up the season with five-consecutive top-five finishes.
Ferreira’s consistency and confidence seemed to improve last season and if he’s able to continue that same level of development in 2013, he will be fun to watch as the season progresses.
