Two top-10 finishes at VIR for Logan Cusson
Canadian rookie Logan Cusson enjoyed a strong race weekend competing in the F3 Americas Championship Powered by Honda at Virginia International Raceway, scoring a pair of seventh place finishes. Nineteen-year-old Cusson entered the 2019 season with one season in the Canadian F1600 championship under his belt. Following a seven day driver development program with Jensen Global Advisors driving the Ligier F4 race car, Logan entered the F4 West Coast Winter Series with two race weekends in January and February earlier this year.
Cusson dominated the F4 West Coast Winter Series, scoring two race wins and two second place finishes, which was the catalyst behind the decision for him to graduate straight to the F3 Americas Championship for the 2019 season. Showing impressive speed, Cusson qualified seventh and finished sixth in his F3 Americas debut at Barber Motorsport Park running on the same event weekend with the NTT IndyCar Series. The strong results immediately validated the decision to move into the F3 Americas category, as was again evidenced by Cusson's performance at VIR.
"It was a big challenge to graduate so quickly to the much faster and heavier F3 Americas car, as well as competing against many vastly more experienced drivers," said Cusson. "However my two-year development plan is to compete in the F3 Americas Championship for two seasons, learning as much as possible in my rookie season, then challenging for a championship in my sophomore season."
