EVERETT STACK SCORES THREE 7TH PLACE FINISHES IN FORMULA REGIONAL AMERICAS DEBUT
Everett Stack continued his impressive young driver development program in his rookie race season where this past weekend he graduated to compete in the Formula Regional Americas Championship for the penultimate round of the 2023 season at Virginia International Raceway.
Driving his Red Hat sponsored Ligier F3 car, 16 year old Everett Stack finished 7th in all three races. He was running as high as 5th position in the weekend's final race before a late race caution.
Everett is now 13th in the Formula Regional Americas Championship standings. With another strong weekend at the 2023 season finale at the Austin F1 circuit, Everett can move into the Top 10 in the championship standings in order to earn his first FIA Super License points.
JENSEN team owner Eric Jensen commented, "We have Everett on a similar young driver development program as we did with our driver Oliver Westling during the 2022 race season. Both young drivers had no previous experience with either karting or race cars, so we after some extensive winter testing we entered them in the F4 US Championship, together with a summer testing program driving our much faster Formula Regional Ligier F3 race cars."
Jensen continued, "As it became clear the both Westling and Stack were performing well driving the F3 cars, we made the decision to graduate both young drivers to finish their rookie seasons racing in the Formula Regional Americas Championship in order to get a head start on their sophomore seasons racing in the higher level category."
The young driver development strategy worked well for Oliver Westling, who scored an impressive 5th place finish in his debut Formula Regional Americas race weekend at Virginia International Raceway in the 2022 season. Oliver then scored his first podium result in the 2022 season finale with an impressive 2nd place finish at the Austin F1 circuit.
After some additional F3 testing at the Homestead Miami Speedway road course later this month, Everett Stack will race in the 2023 Formula Regional Americas season finale at Circuit of the Americas. Everett will then continue his extensive development program preparing to take his shot at challenging for a championship in the 2024 season.
