JDC MotorSports has added Texas teenager Clarke Toppe to its 2013 driver lineup for the upcoming Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda.
"Clarke did an awesome job during a team test earlier this month," added team principal John Church. "He will be a great addition to an already strong lineup this season."
With a proven track record of helping develop young racers into winners and champions, JDC MotorSports believes it has the opportunity to further continue that trend with 15-year-old Toppe. While the former karting front-runner enters his rookie series campaign with only one season of previous car racing experience under his belt, he has already highlighted his talents and potential in private testing with JDC. As a result, the multiple junior formula car title winning team is confident the Texan will be a key member of its gifted multi-car lineup and be part of the mix for Rookie of the Year honors.
"Signing with JDC MotorSports is the biggest accomplishment of my racing career thus far," said Toppe. "I'm excited for this step up onto the Mazda Road to Indy ladder. I am very confident that driving with JDC in the USF2000 Championship will be great for my driver development because of the experience they have in the sport. I know that they can put an outstanding car underneath me at all times, on any track."
