James Roe will go to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course this weekend for the next round of racing in the Road to Indy Presented by Cooper Tires. The 2.258-mile, 13-turn road course will host two races for the Indy Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Cooper Tires, making a considerable amount of points available to series competitors.
Roe is coming off a weekend of season high results at Road America during the last round and is eager to continue that momentum at the Cooper Tires Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio. Last year, Roe’s team Turn 3 Motorsport achieved a pole position and second place finish at the midwestern venue with Road to Indy driver Danial Frost, showing they have a strong package going into this event.

“I’m looking forward to Mid-Ohio this weekend,” said James Roe. “It is one of my favorite tracks here in North America. It is a super technical course that rewards precision. I had a strong run here in both the F3 Americas and F2000 Championships, so the plan is to replicate that and keep our trajectory going in the right direction.”
“Mid-Ohio is an exciting track,” said Team Owner Peter Dempsey. “It’s challenging for drivers to get everything right and get the car where they want it. James has a lot of momentum going from these last couple of rounds, and we’re hoping he can carry that into the weekend and get some strong results.”
This weekend’s Road to Indy event will run in tandem with the NTT INDYCAR SERIES for a full few days of racing over the 4th of July holiday. On track activity begins with a promoter test day tomorrow followed by practice, qualifying, and races on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. A full weekend schedule is detailed below.
Live streaming for the event can be viewed worldwide on the Road to Indy TV app or on http://www.indypro2000.com / http://www.usf2000.com.
