The drivers who found success during the Winterfest, continued their winning ways this weekend during the Mazda Road to Indy opener at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.
Victor Franzoni, who won his first-ever USF2000 Winterfest race, found victory lane in wet conditions during Race 1 of the USF2000 season and RC Enerson, who won the 2014 USF2000 Winterfest, was first to the checkered flag in Race 2. In Pro Mazda, it was American Spencer Pigot capping off a spectacular weekend by sweeping the opening two races of 2014. Pigot also won the 2014 Pro Mazda Winterfest.
In Indy Lights, it was sophomore Zach Veach earning his first-career win after moving ahead of pole sitter (based on yesterday’s combined practice) Gabby Chaves in turn one. Chaves would hold on for the runner-up spot with rookie Jack Harvey advancing to third during the 39-lap race. Vittorio Ghirelli and Luiz Razia rounded out the top-five, respectively.
