Perfect Weekend for Rising Star's Alberico in St. Pete

Rising Star Racing driver Neil Alberico dominated the Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires field again in Race 2 after setting the fastest lap in Race 1 gave him his second pole of the weekend and again led from flag to flag. In spite of multiple yellows that robbed him of his over three-second lead, Alberico managed to maintain his monopoly on clean air and set the pace of the entire race, keeping his cool on a dicey re-start with under two-minutes remaining to race. 

Alberico was ecstatic to give his sponsors Mobe and DA Lubricants, who had enthusiastic guests on hand at the race as well as Olympic gold medalist Tyler Clary, another strong result to cheer for as he swept the weekend with the full points available.

“Budget has always been a driver’s problem,” explained Alberico. “But with the help of Rising Star Racing and their whole crew and MOBĒ and D-A Lubricants coming on board we were able to make it happen last minute. To have this result is all for those guys and I just want to thank God, my dad and everyone that has been supporting me this weekend. This is the best start to a season I have ever had and it’s really great! We weren’t able to do a whole lot of winter testing in the offseason, so we felt like we were a little bit behind the eight ball. I wasn’t able to do the Cooper Tires Winterfest so all of the other guys had a lot more experience and momentum going into the season. So to just be on the grid is amazing, let alone leave the weekend with two pole positions and two wins. It’s great momentum for the rest of the season.”

Next up, Alberico will travel to New Orleans, Lousiana at NOLA on April 11 & 12.
