The F4 U.S. Championship Powered by Honda was developed to help young drivers transition from karting into open-wheel racing. F4 U.S. is the only United States-based series approved by the FIA, with drivers having the opportunity to earn FIA Super License points. The championship is accessible at every level, from drivers graduating from karting, teams stepping up to pro-level competition or fans attending a race weekend. Participants benefit from driver training, unmatched affordability and strong manufacturer support. All competitors can grow and succeed into higher levels of motorsport.
The FR Americas Championship Powered by Honda offers young talent the opportunity to demonstrate their skills on an international platform while keeping affordability and safety as key elements of the program. One of FR America’s greatest strengths is the analytical work that must be carried out by the drivers in cooperation with their engineers. The series is a spec series, allowing single or multi-car teams the same opportunity of success with capped costs. The cars do allow for significant setup adjustments, which increases the drivers’ technical knowledge and builds proficiencies required for moving up in open wheel racing.

The mission of JHDD is to develop our own drivers internally by educating and passing down all of our knowledge to help the drivers perform to the very best of their ability.
Our job is to give the drivers all the tools, assets and information to win. If we are able to take a young driver and teach them the correct driving techniques, racecraft and mindset from the beginning, all while building their confidence, maintaining a consistent message and sense of continuity, the driver will be rewarded with results and championships.
Who better to teach this than Team Principal, Jay Howard—former Road To Indy Champion, IndyCar driver and now champion as a team owner—who has the experience, knows exactly what it takes and how to WIN.
