Thomas Schrage: Ready for more
Returning home from my six-week journey in England last fall, I realized how much I had grown and transformed. Meeting new people and forming connections during the trip had a profound impact on me. Representing Team USA and Ammonite Motorsport was an incredible experience, made even better by my teammates Elliott Budzinski and William Ferguson. The trip challenged me, expanded my worldview, and fostered personal growth. Despite limited resources, I decided to focus on building connections and waiting for the perfect opportunity in the 2023 race season. In the meantime, I became a driver coach and commentated on F1600 races, staying connected to the racing world in different capacities. Then, unexpectedly, I had the chance to make my move into USF2000 Presented by Cooper Tires. Within two weeks, I was testing with Exclusive Autosport and had an impressive debut at Mid-Ohio. Unfortunately, an alternator failure hindered our qualifying performance, but I am eager to continue pursuing my racing career.
