Armsup Motorsports Wins At Lucas Oil Raceway

Saturday at Lucas Oil Raceway, ArmsUp Motorsports earned their first overall win in the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship powered by Mazda. Twenty-two year old rookie Aaron Telitz started in 6th place to win his first race on an oval. The event proved to be a strong run for the Wisconsin based team, as Peter Portante raced strong to gain considerable ground from his 13th place starting position to finish 7th. An impressive pass on Jake Eidson in traffic earned Portante the RePlay XD Move of the Race Award. ArmsUp Motorsports also won the PFC Award and a customized Race Energy charger on their race winning weekend.

The event began with a day of testing for the Mazda Road to Indy series, where the team worked closely with the young drivers to develop the optimum set up for Friday's practices and Saturday's qualifying session. Both Portante and Telitz increased their speed and craft with each session, ultimately dominating the final practice before qualifying. Determined by random draw, Portante qualified first of the field in the single car qualifying session to receive a 13th place start. Each car completed two laps under green and qualified based on the average lap time. Telitz's lap times earned him a 3rd place start for the evening race.

The open laps of the race, both ArmsUp drivers were able to gain position, with Telitz advancing one spot to 5th and Portante two spots to 11th. Telitz and Clark Toppe battled side by side for 5th place for a considerable amount of time before Telitz ultimately took the position and began to pull away. From there, Telitz continued to pick off the competition, one by one until he passed Austin Cindric for the lead with over 50 laps to go. Once the pass was complete, Telitz pulled away to dominate the remaining laps of the event.

Meanwhile, Portante raced consistently in 11th, keeping the rest of the field behind him as he gained ground on the cars ahead. In lap 40 of 75, Portante made the pass for 10th, and just a few laps later, then 9th position. In the final laps of the race, the Connecticut native continued his strong drive, gaining two more positions to finish 7th on the 0.68 mile oval.
