LEGACY AUTOSPORT BRINGS TWO DRIVERS TO MID-OHIO THIS WEEKEND

 

For the first time since May, Legacy Autosport will have two entries in the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship. This weekend, July 25-28, the team will be loading up the #14 and #77 and heading for the 2.258-mile, 13-turn Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. After a strong result in Toronto, Zach Holden will be rejoining the team in the #14 alongside newcomer Tim Pagliuso.

“It’s thrilling to be entering both cars again,” said Legacy Autosport’s Mike Meyer. “Zach did a great job in Toronto, and I am expecting him to have even better results this weekend. Nearly every time he has been in the driver’s seat this season he has come out with a top-ten result.”

Debuting for the first time, Indianapolis, Indiana resident Tim Pagliuso will be piloting the #77 machine with the support of Turtle Plastics. After completing two test sessions at Mid-Ohio back in June, he has been able to gain some experience and work with the Legacy Autosport team before heading into the race weekend.

“I am very thankful to both Legacy Autosport and Turtle Plastics for their support these past couple of months as we have worked hard to put this deal together,” exclaimed Pagliuso. “I am fortunate to have been able to join Legacy Autosport for testing at Mid-Ohio for some extra practice time and to begin building my working relationship with all of the team members.”

Before official practice begins on Friday, Holden and Pagliuso will have three test sessions throughout the day on Thursday. Beginning on Friday, the weekend will consist of one official practice session and two qualifying sessions leading up to the double-header weekend with races on Saturday and Sunday.
