“I’m really looking forward to racing at COTA this weekend,” said d’Orlando. “It’s been 4 years since I’ve been there, and I absolutely love the track. I hope to use the experience I have at this track to maximize our speed and results this weekend and put that #1 Priority Payments Systems / USF Pro Championships car on that top step once again. I know that with the momentum that Turn 3 Motorsport and I have, we can get the most out of this weekend and crawl our way back into the championship fight.”

“I’m ready to get back on track at COTA this weekend,” said Browne. “We have had a month off reset to be ready for this upcoming doubleheader. It's a new track for me and one that I am looking forward to driving the USF Pro 2000 car around. It will also be the hottest race weekend I've ever done, so that will be another challenge to take on. Ready to see what we've got here!”
