Frost Secures 3rd in the Championship Series with a Pair of Podiums in St. Petersburg
St. Petersburg, Fla. (October 26, 2020) – Danial Frost left nothing on the table as he finished the 2020 Indy Pro 2000 Championship presented by Cooper Tires with a pair of podiums at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg Presented by Cooper Tires and Allied Building Products this weekend and secured third overall in the championship.
Frost came into the finale hot, qualifying second on the 1.8-mile, 14-turn street circuit for Race 1 and setting the tone for the weekend. In Race 1, the 19-year-old Singaporean driver gave it all he could to chase down pole sitter Sting Ray Robb—almost taking the fastest lap time and closing the gap to the leader with each lap—but couldn’t quite catch the 2020 champion for the win, instead settling for second.
For Race 2, Frost qualified his #68 DENJET car third, just narrowly missing another second place starting position by .06 seconds. A yellow flag at the start of the final race got the field off to a rocky start, but Frost fought for one last podium to conclude the season, achieving that with a third place finish and enough points to claim second runner up in the championship.
This weekend was a very strong ending to the season. I’m very proud of the team and myself to get the results that we needed. Being able to get the double podium this weekend led us to finishing third in the championship overall. To still finish in the top three with all the challenges we’ve had throughout the year, I couldn’t be more proud of the team’s effort! Thank you to all my sponsors, family, and supporters to make this possible. I wish Turn 3 Motorsport all the best for their future.”

In addition, Turn 3 Motorsport accomplished fourth in the team championship in its first full season campaign with the Indy Pro 2000 Championship.
It’s been a successful first year in the Indy Pro 2000 Championship for our team. I’m very proud of all the staff and what we achieved together. We showed up as an unknown, and we finished the year proving we are one of the best teams in the paddock. I really want to thank Antoine, Danial, and Rasmus for what they all brought to the program. It was a pleasure to work with Danial this season, and he did a great job for our team winning races and consistently fighting for the top spot every weekend. Now we shift our focus to 2021, and we will aim to be stronger and go for that championship!
