With the opening rounds of the 2019 Formula 4 United States Championship less that 2 weeks away, Primus Racing is excited to announce that we have signed Aidan Yoder from Glendale, California to pilot the #44 Primus Racing entry for the 2019 season!
Aidan Yoder, a 16 year-old Southern California resident, began his racing career at age 11 in the Junior 1 Comer Pilot division of the Los Angeles Karting Championship (LAKC). He progressed quickly at the club level, finishing his first three races on the podium. After the quick start, he was promoted, eventually finishing the season as a PRD Junior 2 CRG Factory Team driver. Halfway through the LAKC season, he again jumped classes, landing in the X30 Intermediate category where he achieved two top 10 finishes in his first two races. After dominating the next 2 races, finishing with 16 and 6 second leads, he was asked to petition into the X30 Pro Class for the 2017 season as the youngest driver in the field. Yoder finished 3rd in the championship that year and set his sights on moving into cars. He competed in 8 F4 U.S. Championship races during the 2018 season.
Most recently, Yoder competed at Circuit of the Americas with Primus in the final round of the 2018 series and has been very busy testing with the team ever since. “We have done a lot of mileage with Aidan over the past few months and we have seen massive improvement. Aidan is adapting well to the new Hankook tires and is making strides in all departments. He has really meshed with the team and we enjoy having him around. We are really excited to see where he stacks up at Road Atlanta.” said Primus Racing Engineer & Co-Owner, Derich Cutshaw.
