Danial Frost joins Antoine Comeau for Indy Pro 2000 team lineup

The 2019 Blue Marble Cocktails Radical Cup North America champion joined the Indy Pro 2000 series midway last year in addition to his sports car campaign with the goal of entering a full season in 2020. With the testing and experience he was able to gain during the postponement, Comeau showed up at the Mid-Ohio test with the fourth fastest lap time in the first two sessions and the sixth fastest time overall, setting the bar for a strong season ahead.

“I was really happy to be more competitive at this test than I was in the car last year,” said Comeau. “Having Danial as a teammate was great for me because he set a good baseline for me to learn from, and we ended the day strongly. Now, I’m really looking forward to our first race next weekend at Road America.”

Another new addition to the team is seasoned engineer Ernie Gonella who has a decade of experience working within the Road to Indy. Gonella has contributed to many victories and championships over his years in the industry, making him a valuable asset to the relatively new Turn 3 Motorsport team.

“Adding a second car to our program also meant we needed to bring in some extra people,” continued Dempsey. “I’m very excited to have Ernie Gonella on board to help us with the technical side of our team. We’ve worked together for close to ten years now, and we have a very clear understanding of each other’s strengths, so that makes us a great team which we have proven over the years. Also coming into the team is Richard Lyons who is helping the team in a driver development role in 2020. He comes with 20 years of racing experience at a very high level, so I really feel the team will benefit with having both Ernie and Richard as part of our program. With the team we’ve established, we hope to challenge for race wins throughout the 2020 season.”

The first race of the 2020 Indy Pro 2000 season takes place next week on July 9-10 at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. The double header event will run in support of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, making sure to be an exciting opening weekend for the ladder series.
