2019 saw 28 Drivers score points in USF2000 competing for 10 different teams. There was a wave of new drivers at Portland and Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca and another batch at the October Chris Griffis Memorial Test in October at Indy. In this article I will list out the drivers that participated in USF2000 in 2019, as well as those that have participated in an official test during the offseason. I am sure that there will be other drivers to add to this list as we get closer to St. Pete, but this is the first look at the Silly Season so far.

One item of note as I have compiled all of the Road to Indy Silly Season reports. The one female driver that competed in the RTI ladder system last year will be competing in the W Series. No other female drivers have been identified via testing or announced as being competitors in 2020. This is something that I would love to see changed in the coming months and years. We will see if it does…
I would love to hear your comments.
