With races one and two already in the books on Saturday, Radical Cup North America teams and competitors returned Sunday with one final opportunity to stand atop the podium in race three. In the only wheel-to-wheel action of the weekend that featured a mandatory pitstop, Jordan Missig was able to go three-for-three for the new Graham Rahal Performance program while Chis McMurry had a near perfect affair in Pro 1340 for Crown Racing with APEX. Clint Field got the better of Jon Field in Platinum as names like d’Orlando, Williams, Dyszelski, Schmidt, Anzaldi, Deonarine, Almeida, Blander, and others made their presence felt.

PLATINUM CLASS
Race #3
Taking a win yesterday, Clint Field returned to the top step of the podium today in the third race of the weekend. True to form from the day prior, the Field duo of Clint and Jon claimed the top-two positions on track to score their third consecutive one–two finish of the weekend with Clint getting the upper hand over the three-race average. Wayne Williams earned his first podium result of the season as he consistently improved his results through the race weekend with Kevin Poitras mirroring Williams to nab his best finish in Sebring crossing the line fourth, just ahead of Louis Schriber in the fifth position. Leaving the Sebring International Raceway, Clint Field has an edge in the championship standings courtesy of his two victories and will now shift his focus to the next event to see if he can keep the momentum on his side.

PRO 1500
Race #3
Taking the first two wins of the season yesterday, former Radical Cup competitor turned open-wheel racer Jordan Missig returned to the series with Graham Rahal Performance. Showing his persistence and speed from the very first session, Missig claimed the race one and two victories on Saturday and closed the weekend on the top step of the podium on Sunday. With three wins in three events, the rest of the Pro 1500 field will need to see what they can do to slow the Illinois native down at the next event. Danny Dyszelski scored his third podium result in as many races on the weekend keeping Missig honest to come home second while Evan Slater broke through in race three to score his first career Radical Cup podium result in a talented field of Pro 1500 drivers. While Nick d’Orlando, who scored a pair of podium finishes on Saturday, ran into trouble in race three, Spencer Schmidt and Mike Anzaldi took full advantage of the opportunity and elevated themselves closer to the front of the field, crossing the line in fourth and fifth respectively.

PRO 1340
Race #3
Just like races one and two, Chris McMurry was the class of the field in Pro 1340 adding his third win of the weekend. The top-three, including Seth Bacon and Mayer Deonarine remained consistent over the weekend as all three drivers finished on the podium, and in the same position, in all three wheel-to-wheel races. Pushing hard to keep the top-three on their toes, Suellio Almeida and Ben Blander rounded out the top-five. Following the race, winner Chris McMurry was penalized for an occurrence during one of the full course cautions and moved down the running order handing the win to Crown Racing with Apex teammate Seth Bacon. Deonarine earned his best result of the weekend as he was promoted to second with Suellio Almeid rounding out the podium.

The Sunoco Hard Charger for race three was Platinum Class racer Kevin Poitras.

The next stop for the Radical Cup North America program will be a trip to the picturesque Barber Motorsports Park in Leeds, Alabama as series teams and competitors will have the opportunity to share the track with the NTT INDYCAR SERIES for the first of four times in 2024.
