ArmsUp Builds Momentum at Barber with Podium Finish

Saturday at Barber Motorsports Park, ArmsUp Motorsports earned their first podium finish of the 2014 Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship powered by Mazda season. Twenty-three year old Aaron Telitz from Birchwood, Wisconsin started in 4th Saturday afternoon to race clean and methodically to the podium.

ArmsUp MotorsportsThe ArmsUp season got off to a difficult start last month at St. Petersburg, when both Aaron Telitz and co-driver Peter Portante of Plainville, Conn., were collected in contact and unable to continue in both races. The Wisconsin based team worked quickly to repair both cars for Rounds 3 and 4 at Barber Motorsports park. Focusing forward, the team arrived to the track with a renewed sense of vigor, finishing inside the top eight for both practice sessions. Telitz qualified the #5 ArmsUp Motorsports Race Lake Weighing Systems car in 4th for Race One, and went on to finish in 5th. He set the 4th fastest lap for the race, determining his 4th place starting position for Race 2. An alternate tire strategy for Peter Portante qualified him in 11th in the #24 ArmsUp Motorsports Intercity Lines Special/Spargo Construction car for Race 1. The early laps brought contact for Portante, forcing him to pit for a new wing. He rejoined the field in 19th and raced strong and consistent, ultimately finished 13th. His fastest lap of the race earned him a 5th place starting position for Race 2.

Starting 4th and 5th, both ArmsUp Motorsports drivers had a clean start, with Telitz making an early race pass for third on Victor Frazoni. All race long, Portante held a solid defense of the 5th position, while still pushing closer to 4th, closing the gap with each lap. In the final laps, he was passed, ultimately finishing in 6th. In lap 14 of 18, Telitz made the pass for second place, which he held to the checker flag, earning his first USF2000 podium of his rookie season.

"Both of the drivers did an excellent job," said ArmsUp Motorsports owner Gregg Borland. "All week long, Aaron and Peter really pushed themselves on track and worked with our engineering team to make sure we had the cars tuned in. The team did a great job preparing the cars, and we've got some solid momentum to take to Indianapolis."

The next round of the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship powered by Mazda takes place at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course May 9-10.
