Jay Howard Driver Development

Prominent karting and junior formula team Jay Howard Driver Development (JHDD) announced it will join the Mazda Road to Indy Presented by Cooper Tires on a full-time basis in 2019. Led by Indy car and Indianapolis 500 veteran Jay Howard, who himself has won championships in both USF2000 and Indy Lights, the team’s expansion furthers its mission of advancing drivers from the karting ranks to junior open-wheel categories.

After founding the JHDD Kart Team in 2012, JHDD expanded to cars in 2017. Its initial entry into the F4 U.S. Championship ranks constituted the overall youngest team on the grid by graduating three drivers from its karting program.

The expansion to USF2000 and the IndyCar/Mazda Road to Indy paddock will represent a homecoming for British-born Howard, who claimed the USF2000 championship in 2005 and added the Indy Lights title one year later. Howard has driven for several teams over the years, including Schmidt Peterson Motorsports, Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing and Sarah Fisher Racing, and most recently competed in the 102nd Running of the Indianapolis 500. 

"I am really excited to add USF2000 to my driver development ladder program,” said Howard. “I have always wanted to be a part of the Mazda Road to Indy. It was just a case of timing. We are one step closer to our ultimate goal. I'm really happy to see our internal motorsports ladder working, taking drivers from karts to cars, then developing and supporting our drivers all the way to IndyCar."
