Premier F4US Championship squad brings single-car assault to Mid Ohio, searching for first series victory
Top F4 United States Championship team Abel Motorsports is charging full-throttle towards another intense weekend of F4 competition, this time at Mid Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio. It’s the season’s third weekend of F4 action, with 3 thirty-minute races on tap and a full field of strong drivers to deal with.
Abel Motorsports, based in Louisville, KY, will field young contender Jacob Abel in his Onroak Automotive machine powered by Honda and riding on Pirelli racing slicks, for the tripleheader F4 weekend. Abel is primed to battle for victory at Mid Ohio.
“Mid Ohio is one of my home tracks, for sure” noted Jacob Abel. The 17-year-old ace had two top ten finishes in F4 action last season at what is one of America’s iconic natural-terrain road courses. “I’m really looking forward to Mid Ohio and getting back into our F4 race car. Hopefully we can run up front there, and challenge for a win. I have a ton of seat time at Mid Ohio, and it’s one of my favorite tracks. It’s a big advantage to have been there before.”
Last year Jacob Abel, driver of the #22 Abel Motorsports F4 car, finished 24thin the highly-competitive Championship. He is currently 12thin the 2018 standings. So far this season, Abel has earned a 4th and two 6th place finishes over the first two weekends of F4 action.
Abel Motorsports is based in Louisville, KY, and is led by Team Principal Bill Abel,Team Manager Mark Gibbs, and Lead Engineer Larry Nash. Driver coach Shelby Blackstock is also on board. Abel Motorsports offers racing opportunities to young drivers in the F4 US Championship and the new F3 Americas Championship launching this August, along with other disciplines.
