Newcomers Shine at Chris Griffis Memorial Test

Matthew Brabham, the 2012 USF2000 champion who made his Indianapolis 500 debut earlier this year, posted the second fastest time overall while assisting six-time and defending champion team Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing in its learning curve with the new car. A pair of Team Pelfrey teenagers, Kaylen Frederick, from Potomac, Md., and Robert Megennis, from New York, N.Y., both topped the times at one time or another, while fellow New Yorker Andre Castro, a standout rookie on this year’s Skip Barber Racing Series, also impressed in setting the fastest lap in the final session this afternoon. Castro stepped in today for New Zealander Brendon Leitch at Newman Wachs Racing, which is making its return to the sport following a seven-year hiatus.
