Sanctioned by USAC, the USF Juniors Championship is the first official step on the USF Pro Championship Presented by Continental Tire ladder. The 16-race schedule takes place at six (6) premier events headlined by the NTT INDYCAR Series. Points are awarded to the top-20 finishers in each race, with bonus points awarded for position, most laps led and fastest race lap. Team points are based on the team’s top-two cars in each individual race. Over $1.68M in prize money and awards is on offer including a champion’s scholarship to graduate to the USF2000 Championship.
The Tatuus JR-23 is a full carbon composite and aluminum honeycomb monocoque manufactured to meet current FIA GEN 1 with Halo-type device safety standards, including side impact panels, front and rear impact structures, HANS-compliant IndyCar head restraint, front and rear wheel tethers, upgraded uprights, and upgraded front bulkhead structure for USA-specific oval racing circuits. The JR-23 is powered by a Mazda-developed 2-liter MZR engine, prepared by Elite Engines, while utilizing a fly-by-wire throttle system and Cosworth SQ6 engine management system.

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.
