Josef Newgarden to Participate at SCCA Formula F

The 24-year-old racer will join an event that includes some of the best current Formula F racers in SCCA.

Verizon IndyCar star Josef Newgarden, the only American to ever win in the famed Formula Ford Festival at Brands Hatch, has been confirmed to participate in the Sports Car Club of America Formula F 45th Anniversary at Barber Motorsports Park, August 9-10. Newgarden will race on Sunday in a Honda-powered Piper Formula F and participate as a speaker in the Formula F birthday celebration on Saturday night.

Newgarden will take a break from his current job as the driver of the No. 67 Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing Honda to return to his roots for the weekend. The prestigious Team USA scholarship selection in 2008 allowed Newgarden to win the Formula Ford festival (Kent class) and spend a season racing in the British Formula Ford series, among other rides. The Nashville native returned stateside in 2011 and began his IndyCar career in 2012.

Registration is now open for the SCCA Summer SpeedFest, featuring the Formula F 45th Anniversary, with schedule and supplemental regulations also posted here.
