MUNDELEIN, Ill. – Dylan Christie will team with Turn 3 Motorsport for the upcoming Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship alongside teammate Josh Green.
Like Green, Christie is an accomplished karting racer who recently advanced to formula racing. The 17-year-old took his first season of car racing by storm, finishing second overall in the 2020 FRP F1600 Championship Series with four wins and 12 podiums in his rookie year in addition to winning three SCCA races.
“I expect to see a lot of self-improvement this year in the USF2000 series with Turn 3 Motorsport,” said Christie. “I am happy to be with a team that values preparation and learning as much as I do. Peter (Dempsey), Richard (Lyons), and the entire team come from a background of success and possess all the knowledge and skill I need to keep moving forward. They have a great combination of experience, talent, and motivation. I’m looking forward to learning from them and building upon the success I had last year in F1600. I know that if we put in the time and effort, the results will come.”
“It’s very exciting to have Dylan join our program for the season,” said team owner Peter Dempsey. “Coming from karting and going into F1600 last year is a very similar path to what I’ve had in my career, so I really feel like he has made the right steps moving into USF2000 this year. As a team, we are really looking forward to working with him alongside Josh to do the best job we can throughout the season. He will have a lot to learn, and hopefully Turn 3 Motorsport can provide the tools he will need to develop as a driver during the 2021 season.”
