Matthew Brabham has capped off a solid weekend at Road America by finishing in third in the final race of the Cooper Tires USF2000 powered by Mazda Championship today.

After winning yesterday’s two races, the third generation driver leaves the circuit with a handy 14 point lead over his team-mate and Championship rival Spencer Pigot with four races to go in the championship.

The Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing drivers finished second and third behind the winner Scott Anderson.

Brabham said that he was pleased to maintain his title lead.

“Things were a bit exciting at the beginning, and I had a good dice with Spencer for second for a while,” Brabham said of his race.

“I don’t think we had the right set-up today and I really had a bad understeer that got worse as the race went on. However it was fantastic to get the lead back in the championship, and I am sure the fight with Spencer will go down to the last race.”

The next round of the Championship is at Baltimore with the IZOD IndyCars on Sep 1 – 2.
