LOVELAND, OH (April 3, 2024) – The USF-2000 Championship Indy Car racing season continues for Evagoras Papasavvas this weekend in Avondale, Louisiana at the NOLA Motor Sports Park.

It is race 3, 4 and 5 Friday, Saturday and Sunday April 5-7. Papasavvas finished on the podium in both of the first two races of the season on the streets of St. Petersburg, FL in March. He led most of the laps in each of the two races while finishing second in the first race and then taking third in the second race in his Jay Howard Driver Development (JHDD Racing) #6 car. The two podium results combined with the laps led in race #1 helped him to hold the number two position in DRIVER POINT Standings for the USF-2000 Championship.

With those results behind him, Papasavvas has shifted his focus to the NOLA Motor Sports track and races 3,4 and 5 this weekend. In the weeks since St. Petersburg, he has been focused on doing the right things to be prepared for even better results.

“We’ve done a lot of testing at NOLA during the winter,” said Papasavvas. “I’m comfortable and confident the team can deliver a good car and we can deliver good results there.”

Issues with grip late at St. Petersburg contributed to falling from the lead and the 2nd and 3rd place finishes there. He’s confident the team has addressed those issues. It’s a different track. They’ll make a full reset and set the car up for NOLA he says.

“We reach higher speeds,” Papasavvas said. “Turns are not as tight. NOLA is more wide open. It’s a very fast track. I’m confident this team will have a great car.”
