Douglas doubles up for Pabst in Portland USF2000
Jacob Douglas from Christchurch, New Zealand, won his second consecutive race in the USF2000 Presented by Cooper Tires series. Racing in hot and sticky conditions at Portland International Raceway, Douglas held off a fierce challenge from his teammate Simon Sikes to secure the victory. Sikes, who had already clinched the season-long championship, kept the pressure on Douglas throughout the race. On the last lap, Nikita Johnson made an impressive pass to secure the final podium position. The Pabst Racing team, which dominated the previous day’s race, had all three of its drivers starting at the front of the grid. Douglas took the pole position for the second time in a row. A caution flag was waved at the end of the first lap, but it was not for an incident at the first corner, but rather for Thomas Schrage, whose car came to a halt. Douglas maintained his lead throughout the race, despite a strong challenge from Sikes, and took the victory. Mac Clark held on to third place for most of the race, but Johnson overtook him on the final lap to secure the podium finish.
