Turn 3 Motorsport Heads to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course as Championship Leaders

Hughes looking to hold solid lead; Dyszelski, Durst, and Ho vying for strong results

Lexington, Ohio (July 4, 2024) – Turn 3 Motorsport is set to compete in Rounds 13/14 of the USF Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Continental Tire this weekend at the 2.258-mile, 13-turn racing circuit of Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. The team enters the event as the championship leaders, boasting a 50-point lead thanks to the exceptional performance of Australian rookie Lochie Hughes who led Turn 3 Motorsport to a clean sweep at Road America last month, winning all three races and making huge gains in the championship.

American rookie Danny Dyszelski is eager to earn another podium finish this weekend, having finished in the top six in the last four races. Teammate Tyke Durst is also looking to keep his good momentum going after finally earning his first top ten of the season at Road America. For Ethan Ho, the goal is to garner a strong race result that reflects the speed he has shown all year in practice and qualifying sessions.

“I am ready to continue our good form at Mid-Ohio,” said Dyszelski. “We’ve finished in the top six in the last four races now, so I am really focused on keeping that momentum going this weekend. I had a strong test here with the team, so I’m hoping that carries into the event and we can challenge for more top five finishes.”
