Pabst Racing has announced the signing of 16-year-old Sam Corry for the 2024 USF2000 Championship Presented by Continental Tire. The Lake Norman, North Carolina native who got his start in asphalt go-karts also gained experience on dirt in winged outlaw karts and micro sprints prior to the move to open wheel formula cars.
In 2022, Sam competed in the inaugural season of USF Juniors and earned a second place podium at Circuit of the Americas. In 2023, he won at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in his rookie season of USF2000. As the young driver prepares for his sophomore season in the series, he expressed his enthusiasm to be driving for Pabst Racing in the number 23 car.
“I am excited to be signing with Pabst Racing for the 2024 USF2000 season and looking forward to continuing my racing career with them,” said Corry. “Our goal is to fight for the championship.”
“I want to give all of the glory to God and thank Augie, my family and the Pabst team for giving me this great opportunity.”
Corry’s sponsors include Redline Oil, Stilo, Simpson Race Products and Famus Energy. He is also partnered with a nonprofit called B.R.A.K.E.S. whose mission is to prevent injuries and save lives by training and educating teenage drivers and their parents about the importance of safe and responsible driving.
This driver announcement marks the team’s third and final for USF2000 and comes just a few days before the series test at Sebring Raceway next week.
“We’re thrilled to have Sam complete our 2024 USF2000 lineup,” said team owner Augie Pabst. “Sam is a proven winner and I’m looking forward to seeing him atop the podium on a regular basis in a Pabst car.”
After the pre-season test at Sebring December 11-12, the team will take part in a series test at NOLA Motorsports Park late February. The 2024 season opener will take place at St. Petersburg March 8-10.
