Discount Tire has awarded the Discount Tire Driver Development Scholarship, a $664,500 award, to this year’s USF Pro 2000 presented by Cooper Tires champion, Myles Rowe.
In March of 2023, Discount Tire and USF Pro Championships announced their partnership.
Through the Discount Tire Drive Development Scholarship program, Discount Tire awards champions in the USF Pro 2000, USF2000 and USF Junior race series with a combined amount of over $1.3 million, according to Discount Tire officials.
“I’m honored to work with Discount Tire as we award such an outstanding young man, Myles Rowe, with this year’s Discount Tire Driver Development Scholarship,” says Nelly Dombrowski, media manager at Discount Tire.
“The scholarship program allows these young drivers, like Myles, the chance to achieve their dreams.”
Rowe made history in 2023 as the first African American to win a North American open-wheel championship.
