“Racing in front of such a massive crowd all weekend was an incredible experience. I could hear them at times cheering over the motor,” said Kaszuba. “This experience wouldn’t have been possible without LESA Automotive and the support of my team.”
Kaszuba’s F4 U.S. season ended placing 15th overall nationally (out of 48 competitors) with one podium visit, earning one pole start and two fast laps.
