PORTLAND, Ore. – The USF Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Cooper Tires crowned a champion in its season finale at Portland International Raceway this past weekend. Among other drivers who were fighting for race wins and podium results was Turn 3 Motorsport rookie Louka St-Jean. The young French-Canadian joined the Illinois-based team halfway through the 2023 season, leveling up from USF2000 Presented by Cooper Tires prior to the Road America event in June.

Louka seemed to have found his stride on the 1.964-mile-long track, bringing home a pair of top-10 finishes, one of those being his best finish of the season, piloting his #3 Planiform-branded car across the finish line in fifth. After starting from the outside of row six in the 12th position, St-Jean rocketed his way forward in the very first race of the weekend for his first top-five result. 

“I’m so thankful to the Turn 3 Motorsport team for giving me a quick car this weekend,” said St-Jean. “We’ve struggled to find pace at some venues but that is partially due to me being new to both the team and the car. It seems like we were able to get it figured out early on this time around so I could get acclimated with the track well.”

After a bit of traffic and some hard racing hindered St-Jean’s second race, he bounced back with an eighth-place finish, two spots further forward from his race three starting position.

St. Jean continued, “It’s tough that this was our last race because I was just starting to really get comfortable behind the wheel of the #3 USF Pro machine. I’ve learned so much this year from my Turn 3 Motorsport team, and I look forward to continuing that upward trend in 2024.”

St. Jean went on to say, “I would like to personally thank all my sponsors, Planiform, Proservin Construction, Cosme Inc., Acier Marquis, JIT Laser Inc., and TLA Architectes for supporting me this season and allowing me to focus on what I love. I wouldn’t have been able to do this season without all of them.”

Stay tuned for Louka St-Jean’s announcement regarding his 2024 season soon. Stay tuned to Louka St-Jean’s social media accounts this off-season to keep up with news and information on his preparation for the 2024 season.
