Aaron Telitz has signed with Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing for the 2015 Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda season.
The secondary note of that is that the USF2000 field has just been put on notice.
The 23-year-old native of the small town of Birchwood, Wis. (less than 500 residents) will be in the team’s No. 3 entry alongside previously announced teammate Nico Jamin of France.
Telitz is one of the two Team USA Scholarship winners this season, fresh off his rookie year in USF2000 where he banked one win and six podium finishes, finished fourth in the Championship and claimed “Rookie of the Year” honors. He entered after taking home the 2013 Skip Barber Championship Shootout.
Telitz’s blogs from the time in England where he raced after winning the Team USA Scholarship can be found here, via that website.
But the talented young American, who’s also high on personality, seeks to follow in the tracks of previous champions Florian Latorre (2014), Scott Hargrove (2013), Matthew Brabham (2012) and Petri Suvanto (2011) as consecutive USF2000 champions for Cape.
“I’m super stoked to be joining Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing for the 2015 Cooper Tires USF2000 series,” Telitz said in a release. “After having a strong rookie year, I’ve decided to come back to USF2000 and make another run at the championship.
“I don’t think I need to do a lot of talking about the Capes’ track record for producing champions. I am looking forward to learning a ton from the Cape brothers and performing my best each race weekend, and we’ll see where the year takes us!”
