After several test days and a couple of event weekends in 2023, Ayden Ingratta and Jay Howard Driver Development (JHDD) have come to terms on a 2024 effort. Set to make a title run in the USF Juniors Presented by Continental Tire, the Road to Racing Canada, A14 Management driver, and young Canadian will be a major piece to the JHDD puzzle for success.

“While we are set for our first full season in the USF Juniors program, Ayden has shown speed in testing and will challenge for race wins, podium results, and the championship in 2024,” explained Team Owner and former NTT INDYCAR Series driver Jay Howard. “Ayden has been a winner through the karting ranks, and I was very impressed with his natural skill and ability as he made his move into formula car racing.”

Ayden Ingratta is a 15-year-old rising motorsports star from Kingsville, Ontario, competing in the top levels of karting across North America. Ayden was first exposed to racing at his local karting track at the age of five, where he immediately became hooked on the sport. By age seven, Ayden participated in competitive events and became a top contender in the Canadian karting scene. At age ten, Ingratta won his first Canadian National Championship and was nominated for and won the Canadian Karting News 2018 Eastern Canadian Driver of the Year.

Ayden followed up on his success within the Canadian karting scene by branching out and entering races across both the US and Canada. His continued success throughout these various series saw him qualify for several international events in 2020 and part of 2021 that he was, unfortunately, unable to attend because of the global pandemic. After getting back into races in 2021, he continued to dominate the karting world on both sides of the border.

While continuing to race karts, in 2024, Ayden Ingratta is finally confirmed to compete in his first full season of the USF Juniors Presented by Continental Tire with Jay Howard Driver Development.

“We started off with a few race events last year at Road America and the Circuit of the Americas just to see the level that I would need to be at entering 2024,” added Ingratta. “Those events helped push me to be better both on and off the track, and I am ready to attack the season and see if I can help add to the growing JHDD resume.”

With additional test days and weekends planned between now and the first race of the season, Ayden Ingratta will make his first start of the 2024 USF Juniors Presented by Continental Tire series program, April 5-7 at NOLA Motorsports Park, just outside New Orleans, Louisiana.
