Series rookie Aaron Telitz scored his maiden Pro Mazda race win at St Petersburg on Sunday, holding off the challenge of race-one winner Pato O’Ward.
Telitz led from pole ahead of O’Ward, the lead duo pulling clear of Nico Jamin and Weiron Tan, as Jake Eidson fell back from his second-row start.
Tan took third from Jamin on lap two, to make it a Team Pelfry 1-2-3, as Jake Parsons further demoted Eidson to take fifth.
F2000 graduate Telitz withstood immense early pressure from O’Ward before easing away to a 2.7s win.
Jamin was best of the non-Pelfrey cars in his Cape/WTR entry, although the duelling Parsons and Will Owen kept him in sight to the finish, as Eidson lost another place in the closing stages to finish seventh.
