d’Orlando returns as two-year reigning race winner in USF2000
Indianapolis, Ind. (May 24, 2023) – Turn 3 Motorsport will take on the .686-mile oval of Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park at Friday night’s traditional Carb Night Classic, an event which has long served as a predecessor to the world famous Indianapolis 500.
The USF Pro 2000 Championships Presented by Cooper Tires team has some notable achievements at the circuit; Turn 3 scored a podium finish with INDY NXT driver Josh Green at last year’s Cooper Tires Freedom 90, and USF2000 Champion and current USF Pro 2000 Championship driver Michael d’Orlando took the USF2000 pole and win at the event in both 2022 and 2021. With points being worth more this weekend, the hunger for top results is strong within the team.

“I’m really looking forward to going back to Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park for the Freedom 90,” said d’Orlando. “I’ve always had success there winning the Freedom 75 in 2021 and 2022. With the testing we’ve done prior to the weekend, I’m confident that the Turn 3 Motorsport crew and I can perform and maximize our results. I can’t wait!”

“I’m excited to be back out racing this week,” said Browne. “Being the only oval on the calendar provides a different challenge to every other event, but it’s one that we are ready for. I’m looking forward to getting out there and seeing what we can do.”

“We are going to give it our all for the last race in May,” said Lee. “The oval brings its own unique set of challenges, and the team and I have worked hard to prepare ourselves to give it a strong run. We’ve shown solid pace with some good results in the last two events, and I hope to have a great result in a race 15 minutes from where I live. Thanks to everyone at Turn 3 Motorsport for giving me a great opportunity to put the car up front, and thanks to the IU Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center, Browning Chapman Specialty Contractors, and Race for RP.”
The Cooper Tires Freedom 90 will take place on Friday night at 9:30pm ET with testing, practice, and qualifying sessions happening prior.
