The Onderko Motorsports Team recently announced their intentions to compete in the Mazda Road to Indy USF2000 Racing Series in 2012. The team has been in preparation for the transition to open wheel racing midway through their 2010 championship season. In between doing PR work for Onderko's charity Race Against Drugs, Justin spent time at the Bertil Roos High Performance Racing School in Blakeslee, PA.

Dennis Macchio, President of Bertil Roos and a 30 year racing veteran commented on Justin’s performance while at the school. “Every once in awhile, a driver comes through the school that clearly stands above the others in terms of talent and ability. In my 13 years with the school this has occurred, perhaps a half a dozen times. The most recent example is Justin Onderko”. Macchio continues, “Prior to his arrival at the school, Justin had oval racing experience, but was completely new to open-wheel cars, and to road courses. To the surprise of our instructors, as well as myself Justin adapted incredibly fast and quickly became one of the fastest prospects. Justin has several intangibles that make him stand out - track savvy, excellent physical skills, and little fear of speed”. Macchio acknowledges, “… but the thing that sets him apart, as with all top level drivers, is his ability to process information while in the cockpit and at speed”.

The USF2000 Series is sanctioned by INDYCAR as part of the Mazda Road to Indy ladder system. The USF2000 is also a support series for the IZOD Indy cars as well as the American LeMans Series.
