Formula Pro USA kicked off its Winter Series this weekend at Sonoma Raceway in beautiful Sonoma California. Round 1 took place on Sunday with Logan Cusson qualifying on pole. 2018 Winter Series Champion Kyle Loh started in 2nd. The start was clean, and Cusson retained the lead. On the third lap Loh got slightly offline into turn 2 and went off track and was unable to continue. When the track went green again there was plenty of action with lead changes back and forth between Cusson and Dylan Tavella. When the checkered flag dropped Cusson emerged victorious. Ryan MacDermid drove a very consistent race to finish P3.
Round 2 took place on Monday with Cusson starting on pole. With rain showers in the air and wet track conditions, our racers went out on rain tires and battled it out to the finish. The exciting race saw Tavella get around Cusson early in the race with Cusson pressing hard to try and regain P1. All eyes stayed glued to the track watching as Tavella drove a very strong race making no mistakes and holding a very determined Cusson off to win the race. Ryan once again put in a solid performance to finish on the podium in third.
