ArmsUp Motorsports announced its four-car lineup for the 2013 USF2000 National Championship today, which is set to kick-off next week at Sebring International Raceway.

Regulars for the squad will be James Dayson, Felipe Donato, and Andrew Hobbs. Joining for a two-race effort will be Tim Paul.

Dayson, 34, returns to ArmsUp Motorsports after winning the USF2000 Winterfest National Class with the team.

Donato, a rookie from Brazil, will look to build on his karting experience this season as he moves up to regular-season USF2000 competition for the first time. In 2011, he competed in the Formula Future Fiat Championship and this past winter he made the jump to the USF2000 Winterfest, earning two top-10 finishes and a fifth-place finish at Palm Beach International Raceway.

Hobbs, 18, grandson of David Hobbs, will graduate to USF2000 competition in 2012 after proving himself in the Skip Barber Racing ranks. In 2012, Hobbs competed in the Skip Barber Summer Series, compiling two wins and six podiums.

Paul, a F2000 Championship Series regular, will run two events with ArmsUp Motorsports while also competing in the F2000 Championship, where he earned nine top-10 finishes in 2012 — including a fifth at VIR and Mid-Ohio.
