Team will return as reigning pole winners with driver Jonathan Browne
Indianapolis, Ind. (May 11, 2023) – Turn 3 Motorsport is set for Rounds 5 and 6 of the USF Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Cooper Tires taking place at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway grand prix circuit this weekend. The team has had great success at its previous two visits to the 2.439-mile, 14-turn road course; driver Jonathan Browne claimed the pole position at last year’s race event and went on to set the fastest lap time on day one of the post-season Fall Combine test.
After winning two pole positions and a race in the first two rounds of the season, the team is eager to keep the momentum going and come away with more strong results from the “The Racing Capital Of The World”.

“I am so excited to get going racing again,” said Lee. “This event is in my hometown just 20 minutes from where I grew up! The Indy 500 has been a huge part of my life since I was a child. I’ve been to every race that allowed fans since I was seven years old. For me, racing across the Yard of Bricks is a feeling like none other. To get a good result here would be amazing, so we are going to be working very hard to put the #47 IU Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center car at the front of the field!”
On track activity begins on Friday with practice, qualifying, and the first of two races. Saturday will host another qualifying session followed by the second and final race of the weekend.
