A new year means some new programs for Legacy Autosport as the Indianapolis based team is expanding to the Indy Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Cooper Tires. Purchasing an asset within the last two weeks, team officials are currently prepping the PM-18 and will be ready for testing after the holiday break.
“It is an exciting time for us as the car is currently being prepped and painted,” explained Legacy Autosport’s Mike Meyer. “We grew from 2018 to 2019 and definitely elevated our game both in the shop and on the track. 2020 will see another jump in the program, and we hope to be able to test some drivers and make an official announcement early in the new year.”
Scoring podium results in the 2019 Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship with drivers Zach Holden and Alex Barron, the team also brought in series newcomer Tim Pagliuso for the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course event and Ayrton Ori for the final two races in Portland and Laguna Seca last year. With the goal to compete with front-running programs from the very first race in St. Pete, an intense testing program has been developed for the first two months of 2020 for both their USF2000 and Indy Pro 2000 outfits.
Meyer continued, “We have been able to solidify some test dates down south and have done so with other Road to Indy teams to help lower the track rental costs. We are anticipating substantial growth in the Indy Pro 2000 grid in 2020 and look to be the leader amongst these rookie teams and battle with the series veteran teams from the first green flag in March.”

“We will be able to announce our new engineer next week, and he will be a valuable asset to our growing program,” added Meyer. “We will now continue to pursue and sign drivers and should have announcements early in the new year.”
