DUPELL RETURNS TO NEWMAN WACHS RACING ALONGSIDE SIEGEL FOR USF2000 FINALE

American Road to Indy drivers aiming for strong results at their home coast event

Newman Wachs Racing will make its debut at the 2.238-mile, 11-turn WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca this coming weekend for Rounds 14 and 15 of the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship. Palo Alto, California?s Nolan Siegel will take to his home track and will be rejoined by Kyle Dupell from Oregon, who competed with the team at the Grand Prix of Portland. Siegel and Dupell will team up to strive for their best results of the season. Nolan did not post the results he would have liked during Race 1 in Portland, but he bounced back in Race 2 and delivered one of his best performances of 2019, making many impressive passes for positions. Dupell had a consistent weekend in Portland in his first start of the season, as he became more and more comfortable with the team as the event progressed, finding more speed in every on-track session. Siegel and Dupell will take to the track on Friday morning for their one and only practice, followed by Qualifying 1 in the afternoon, to officially start the Road to Indy season finale.

Coming into the last race of the year, I expect Nolan to start right where he left off at Portland,? offered Brian Halahan, NWR Team Manager. The final results don?t show it, but he did a great job and really had great pace. I would not be surprised to see him get his best result of the season this weekend. I?m sure Kyle will keep getting more comfortable as well. This will be his second weekend with the team, so I am sure he will be improving every session and we will see better results.

Siegel and Dupell will be on-track starting on Friday (September 20), kicking off the doubleheader weekend with one official practice early in the morning followed by qualifying for Race 1 in the late afternoon. Saturday will again start bright and early with Qualifying 2, with Race 1 taking place later that day. The weekend will be capped on Sunday morning with the running of Race 2 at 10:25 am PST. 

Fans can follow along all weekend on the Road to Indy TV app, or through?www.roadtoindy.tv?or Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Facebook page. Newman Wachs Racing will also have dedicated coverage of their weekend on all their professional social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram).

I am extremely excited for the final rounds of the USF2000 season at Laguna Seca. It?s been an incredible season of learning and I?m ready to it give everything in this last race. Having the season finale be my home race just makes it more special, so I just want to get out there and drive!

NOLAN SIEGEL – #36

I?m excited to be back with the team again for the final rounds of the championship. I?ll be looking forward to being able to continue to get back up to speed together this weekend and push for better results.
