Lexington, OH - From pole, Austin McCusker led every lap at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course to win round four of the F2000 Championship Series season. McCusker put together a last-minute deal to drive the No. 95 Mazda-powered Van Diemen, and took the win over brother John McCusker. Brandon Dixon, Robert Allaer and Steve Jenks completed the top five.
Austin McCusker, Dotworks Racing:
"Going one-two is good for my brother and I. I need to thank the teams and boys. I sure hope I am back in a F2000 car soon. I also need to thank ADSA/Wright for the car and Company Motorsports for all their support."
John McCusker, Dotworks Racing:
"We had some trouble this morning with a dead battery in the first race. I need to thank the team for fixing it and we came back for a good race - with Austin and I finishing first and second."
Brandon Dixon (Masters Class Winner), Citation Engineering:
"I was just struggling to keep pace the second half of the race and keep the tires under the car. I was doing all I could."
Robert Allaer (Masters Class - Second Place), LTD Motorsports:
"It's a good day at Mid-Ohio. I need to count my blessings as the car is going home in one piece."
Steve Jenks (Masters Class - Third Place), Tumenas Motorsports:
"I made that race more fun than it needed to be going off early in Thunder Valley. I gave up spots to Tim (Paul) and Dave (Weitzenhof) but got around them again. I needed more laps to chase down Robert."
The Series next heads to Indianapolis, June 8-11.
