December 21, 2018 – It was a career year for second year Road to Indy driver David Malukas. Making the move to the Indy Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Cooper Tires (formerly Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires), after a brief hiatus in USF2000, Malukas capped off his best formula car season to date with three victories, six podiums, two pole positions and one dominant weekend, sweeping each and every official on track session.

“It was a great season but along with the highs come the lows,” explained Malukas. “Being able to stand on the podium six times was good and to stand on the top step of three of them was one of the best feelings ever. However, a drive through penalty took away a chance at a podium in Indy, a crash at Lucas Oil Raceway and a mechanical issue while leading at Mid-Ohio really hurt our overall point total for the year. 2019 presents a new challenge and I am 100% focused.”

Kicking off the season in the Streets of St. Petersburg, Malukas piloted his BN Racing prepared Pro Mazda to a second place podium result. Starting the season off on the right foot, another podium was gained at Barber Motorsports Park before a low point at the Indianapolis Grand Prix weekend.

Malukas continued, “Indy was not a good month for results. We were really quick on the road course as the BN Racing guys nailed the setup but an unfortunate drive through penalty ruined any chance of a good result. On to Lucas Oil Raceway and the first oval of my career, it took a while for me to get comfortable but when I did, I had top-five pace. An unfortunate incident took me out of the race and caused a lot of work for the team.”

A few weeks later the hard work paid off as the Chicago, Illinois resident dominated Road America. Scoring a pair of pole positions, two fast lap honors and topping the podium in both wheel-to-wheel races, Malukas claimed a perfect weekend at one of North America’s most historic tracks and in front of the complete Road to Indy ladder program.
Heading north of the border for the one and only event in Canada, Malukas entered the Streets of Toronto with momentum and confidence. Showing pace, and claiming the second fastest lap in both wheel-to-wheel events, an incident in race one forced him to retire while a punctured tire in the second race on the weekend hindered any chance of a good finish.

The Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course was the facility that Malukas was looking forward to since his weekend at Road America. A long, flowing historic circuit and two more chances to claim the checkers, the future motorsports star claimed a second place result in race one, before a mechanical failure while leading in race two forced him to the sidelines. Upset that he was unable to make it to the checkered flag, Malukas did not let his emotions get the best of him as he hopped the fence and into the crowd to take pictures with fans and sign autographs for kids becoming an instant hero to some young Mid-Ohio race fans.

The cross-country trek to the Portland International Raceway proved to be fruitful for the American as Malukas ended his season with his third victory and secured the fourth position in the overall championship chase.

With a new season on the horizon and a new challenge, the Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires, David Malukas is one step away from his ultimate goal of being an IndyCar driver. Along with a new season comes a new media program, including a new website that is now officially online at

Malukas added, “This season has been great and I can’t thank all of my partners for their hard work and continued support. A huge shout out to BN Racing, Bryn Nuttall and his complete staff there as they have managed to build a program from the ground up, and not only a program, a winning program. Another great partner of mine has been HMD Trucking and without them, I would not be where I am today. Also a special thank you to FreemUK for keeping me safe as well as making me look good. Best suits on the market!”

Taking time away from the track for the holidays, David Malukas and his BN Racing Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires program will hit the track in January to continue their winter test program.


January 31, 2019 – Chicago, IL – After competing in high-level karting in North America and moving to Europe to try his hand in the Italian F4 program in 2018, Anthony Famularo is returning to competition in North America with BN Racing. Inking a deal to compete in the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship, Famularo will join the highly successful BN Racing program that already includes multi-time Road to Indy race winner and Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires rookie David Malukas.

“We are welcoming Anthony to BN Racing with open arms,” explained Bryn Nuttall. “Anthony has proven to be fast in preseason testing, and I am confident that he will surprise a lot of people in his rookie season. He comes with a great coach and mentor in former F1 race winner and multi-time Indianapolis 500 Champion Juan Pablo Montoya”

As a former national level kart racer and a multi-time champion of the sport, Famularo is new to the Road to Indy program, but not to open wheel racing. As a competitor in the Italian F4 Championship in 2018, Famularo gained valuable experience that will aid his efforts in his new 2019 program.

Nuttall continued, “We have just completed several days of testing since the new year and look forward to continuing the development work with Anthony. Even with our results in 2018, we are building and improving our team every month and I think with a little more time, testing and experience in the seat of a USF-17, Anthony could achieve some solid results in the upcoming season.”

With their Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires seat filled with David Malukas and one of their Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship seats now confirmed with Anthony Famularo, BN Racing will have several more announcements on the horizon including two drivers in the Indy Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Cooper Tires as well as another USF driver that will compete alongside Famularo.

BN Racing Confirms Expansion into Indy Lights for 2019 Chicago-based Team to Field Cars on all Three Levels of the Road to Indy

PALMETTO, Fla. – After a season of small fields – but no shortage of thrilling action among an extremely talented group of drivers – Andersen Promotions is pleased to announce that a new team, BN Racing, will enter the Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires fray in 2019. The Chicago, IL-based squad today confirmed plans to enter at least one Dallara-Mazda IL-15, in addition to its existing commitments in both the Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires and the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda.

Indy Lights represents the top rung on the highly acclaimed Mazda Road to Indy Presented by Cooper Tires, which offers talented young open-wheel drivers a series of opportunities to progress from the grassroots of the sport to the pinnacle in North America. No fewer than 25 of the 33 starters in this year’s Indianapolis 500 graduated via Indy Lights. As confirmed recently, the winner of next year’s Indy Lights championship will claim an enhanced scholarship valued at $1.1M to guarantee entry into at least three IndyCar Series events in 2020, including the 104th Indianapolis 500.

BN Racing is led by Englishman Bryn Nuttall, who has an extensive background in many areas of motorsports globally, from the engineering side to management and coaching aspects of the sport, with success all around the world.

The team has made quite an impression since bursting onto the scene with a partial season of USF2000 competition in 2017. Despite missing the opening four races, BN guided teenager David Malukas to a pole position in just his second event start at Road America and ended the season with a best finish of second, as well as three consecutive top-six results to round out its initial campaign.

The progression continued into 2018 as BN added a pair of Pro Mazda cars to its roster. The young team’s highlight came once again at Road America, where Malukas and Englishman Toby Sowery finished first and second in each of the two races and Keith Donegan earned his first podium finish in USF2000, claiming a season record of five podiums during a race weekend. The team finished the 2018 season in style with Malukas winning the last race of the year at the Portland GP this past weekend.

In a little over a year BN Racing has become an established front running team in both categories, with race wins, podiums, pole positions and lap records strewn across its impressive first full season in 2018.

“I’m delighted to be able to announce we will enter the 2019 Indy Lights championship and complete the team’s ability to offer all three categories of these outstanding racing series operated by Andersen Promotions,” said Nuttall. “Not only is this a key step in moving forward as a racing team but with the extra personnel coming in, this will also strengthen my already established USF2000 and Pro Mazda teams, which is a very critical point for me. My aim is to have the capability of winning in every series we enter.

“I’m under no illusions on how tough 2019 in Indy Lights is going to be, but we’ve shown many times over the last 18 months what we are capable of, so let’s see what happens when March arrives.”

BN will announce its driver and testing plans in the coming weeks.

“We are very excited to welcome BN Racing to the Indy Lights paddock,” said Dan Andersen, Owner and CEO of Andersen Promotions. “Bryn has established his credentials with front-running teams in both USF2000 and Pro Mazda, and I expect no less from him in Indy Lights. His dedication and passion in helping drivers reach the top level of our sport is underscored with his expansion to now include all three levels of the ladder system. Bryn is a go-getter and has put a great program in place in a short amount of time. We are looking forward to seeing his hard work and commitment pay off with continued success in Indy Lights.”

In 2016, the multi-time race winner and champion split his time between British F4 and the British Formula 3 Autumn Trophy before focusing on the British F4 program in 2017. Amassing ten victories, six pole positions, and an astounding sixteen podium results, the 19-year-old went onto claim another championship.
Caroline added, “The Mazda Road to Indy offers something that not many other series do and that is why I am making the switch to racing in the United States. To have the opportunity to gain scholarship money with championships and move up the ladder is unprecedented, and I am excited for the challenge. Also, to compete alongside the Verizon IndyCar Series at many events is something that I am looking forward to.”

“Jamie’s resume speaks for itself,” expressed BN Racing’s, Bryn Nuttall. “He has had success with multiple teams in many different programs, ultimately topping the end of the year points battles in many of them.

BN Racing and its full stable of drivers will kick off the 2018 season at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, March 9-11 in both Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda and the Pro Mazda Presented by Cooper Tires.
