Tampa, FL (March 12, 2019) –Team Pelfrey has announced that Tyler O’Connor will compete in the No. 83 Team Pelfrey F1600 Mygale this coming weekend for the SCCA Hoosier Super Tour at Road Atlanta.
"I am really looking forward to working with Team Pelfrey.” O’Connor said, “I can't wait to get back in the car at Road Atlanta, which is one of my favorite tracks. The team has been working hard throughout the winter, and I am confident we will be battling for wins and having some fun in the always close FF style of racing. At the end of the weekend, the goal is to gather as much data as possible. I hope to contribute however I can to help the team gain a solid footing for their return to Atlanta for the first three rounds of the F1600 Championship Series in April."
