Aaron Jeansonne: Steady Progress

Aaron JeansooneSULPHUR, La. (May 15, 2018) – Two race weekends of the 2018 F2000 Championship Series season are already in the books. It’s been a wild ride to start this year to say the least. Of course, in Road Atlanta, we began the season with two “DNFs”, so I knew going into Watkins Glen we would need two solid finishes. But first, I took a trip to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for a nice weekend of IMSA racing. As much as I’d like to say how fun it was to compete there, that wasn’t the case.... yet. I had a great time getting to know more people in the racing world and spectating at an exciting IMSA event live for the first time. It surprised me just how many fans showed up to support their favorite manufacturers and drivers, and I was even able to meet some of my favorite drivers (below with fellow former Team USA Scholarship winner Dane Cameron). I can’t wait to be able to attend another!
