COLUMBUS, OHIO (April 2, 2013) – Alliance Autosport continued their strong run in the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship powered by Mazda National Class by winning Rounds Three and Four in St. Petersburg, and picking up another podium finish.
Scott Rettich, 28, of Camden, Ohio, started the weekend off strong by qualifying the No. 71 PDI Communication Systems/Springboro Car Wash entry on the pole for Round Three at the St. Pete Grand Prix. Rettich relinquished the lead to his teammate Ryan Verra on the start, but after a few laps under caution, Rettich was able to move back into the lead and open up a sizeable gap over his next closest competitors in the National Class Presented by SCCA Enterprises.

In Round Four, Rettich was again able to stay out of trouble and take a comfortable win over second place finisher James Dayson.
