Giaffone, Jeffers Share USF Juniors Winner Spoils

ALTON, Va. — Brazilian Nicolas Giaffone and first-time winner Jack Jeffers shared the victory spoils today as this weekend’s Cooper Tires VIR Grand Prix concluded with a pair of exciting USF Juniors Presented by Cooper Tires races at VIRginia International Raceway. Joey Brienza (Exclusive Autosport) and 14-year-old Hudson Schwartz (VRD Racing) completed the podium in the first race, with Giaffone and Max Taylor (VRD Racing) claiming the places in the finale. Jeffers maintained a slender advantage over a snarling pack for the opening four laps, but points leader Giaffone was on a mission. Taylor took the challenge to Giaffone after the final restart with two laps remaining. A new race lap record for Giaffone was enough to secure him another Cooper Tires Pole Award for the third and final race of the weekend, with the grid established according to either each drivers’ second fastest lap in qualifying or their best lap from race two.
