BROWNSBURG, IN – Exclusive Autosport is excited to announce the addition of João Vergara as their new official driver in the 2024 USF Juniors Presented by Continental Tire line-up. After competing in the final two events of the 2022 Lucas Oil School of Racing Formula Car Series, the 16-year-old Brazilian returned to the program this past season after winning their 2023 Shootout. From there, he went on to finish second in the championship with five wins. Vergara advanced to formula car racing after four years in karting, a time during which he focused his final year on the American karting scene in Florida. João continues to leverage karting to stay sharp and is mentored and coached by his uncle, Ozz Negri.

“I am excited to announce that I will be joining Exclusive Autosport for the 2024 USF Pro Championship season in USF Juniors,” enthused Vergara. “I am confident that we will make a strong team and achieve great things. I want to thank everyone who helped make this possible and am looking forward to this incredible opportunity.”

Vergara has spent time already testing with Exclusive Autosport and has found a groove with his engineer, Louis D’Agostino, as well as the EA crew members. In preparation for the season, João will continue to test throughout the off-season with the team leading up to the series ‘Spring Training’ in late February at NOLA Motorsports Park.

“João did a fantastic job at the Lucas Oil School of Racing Formula Car Series throughout the last year,” said Exclusive Autosport owner Michael Duncalfe. “We have a solid testing program in place to prepare for the season opener at NOLA in April 2024 where I am confident João will make a strong series debut. I am excited to officially welcome João to the EA program and I am looking forward to working with the Vergara family and Ozz Negri.”

Exclusive Autosport is excited about the 2024 season and will field multiple cars in all three levels of the USF Pro Championships Presented by Continental Tire. Additional driver announcements will be made in the coming weeks.
