Indianapolis, Ind. (May 11, 2022) – Rounds 5, 6, and 7 of the Road to Indy Presented by Cooper Tires are set to take place at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course this weekend as Turn 3 Motorsport readies to take on the first triple-header event of the season for both the Indy Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Cooper Tires and the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship series.
Coming off a solid weekend at Barber Motorsports Park just a couple of weeks ago, Turn 3 Motorsport is eager to carry that momentum forward as the championship hunt remains tight for both the Indy Pro 2000 and USF2000 series going into the Grand Prix of Indianapolis Presented by Cooper Tires.
#3 Josh Green // Indy Pro 2000
“I am pumped for the Grand Prix of Indianapolis,” said Green. “I have had a super pleasant break and a good mental reset to get prepped for the busy month of May, starting at the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway this weekend. I really can’t wait to be back in the car and get to wheeling. Let’s boogie!”
#2 Jonathan Browne // Indy Pro 2000

“I’m really looking forward to getting going at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with practice on Thursday,” said Browne. “I’ve watched cars go around this track since I can remember, so to be driving on that will be a cool experience. As far as the racing goes, I’ll be pushing to continue getting further up the grid every time. Can’t wait to get there!”
#33 Spike Kohlbecker // USF2000
“The Indianapolis Motor Speedway grand prix circuit is the coolest venue of the year,” said Kohlbecker. “The track is inside the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway and uses parts of the Indy 500 oval. It also has amazingly long straits where we go upwards of 155 mph! This event is also close to my home which means lots of family and friends will attend. I’m excited to once again race at this amazing track and to see the people I love. See you there!”
#32 Christian Weir // USF2000
“This weekend at the Grand Prix of Indianapolis might be an interesting one,” said Weir. “With my lack of experience on this track, I’m not sure where I’ll end up, but with the strong pace we were able to show at Barber Motorsports Park a couple of weeks ago, I still feel we can be in the hunt. With IMS being a track that promotes overtaking, I think we can pick our way through the races even with a lack of pace. Let’s see how things get shaken up!”
Turn 3 Motorsport Team Owner
“Any race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is always special, but to have six races in one weekend is certainly high pressure as a team,” said Team Owner Peter Dempsey. “I feel we are as well prepped as possible and really looking forward to the challenge ahead. Both our Indy Pro 2000 and USF2000 programs are performing well; we just need to get a little more to be right there. I trust our drivers will be able to find the extra edge this weekend. There are a lot of points up for grabs, so consistency will be important to give ourselves the opportunity for a successful weekend. It’s time to go and get it – results are always earned and not handed out!”
