The Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship debuted in 2010 and is a continuation of the highly regarded USF2000 series which ran from 1990 through 2006, launching the careers of many of today’s top drivers. Sanctioned by INDYCAR, the series is the first official step on the Road to Indy Presented by Cooper Tires – a clearly defined path to reach the top echelons of the sport. In addition to providing a vital training ground for rising stars, the series champion will earn a scholarship package to advance to the Indy Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Cooper Tires, the next step on the ladder system.

Kyle Kirkwood of Cape Motorsports claimed the 2018 USF2000 champion’s title with an impressive season that saw him tie J.R. Hildebrand’s 2006 record of 12 wins in a season.

The series is also part of the $200K USF2000 Scholarship Shootout, which brings together champions of series from around the world to compete for a $200K scholarship to enter the USF2000 ranks.
