Agren, 22, contested the F1600 series in 2013 and 2014, winning the championship title on her second attempt with Team Pelfrey.

Her and Pelfrey moved to USF2000 last year, where she ended up 10th overall, with a best finish of sixth.

“Team Pelfrey and I accomplished a lot together, especially during the 2014 season,” Agren told Motorsport.com.

“We are all on good terms, and they are still a big part of my racing family. But I felt that, for my driving development, it would be good to work with some new people.”

John Cummiskey Racing entered USF2000 full-time in 2015 and took its main driver – rookie Anthony Martin – to fourth in the standings.

Agren is the team's only confirmed 2016 signing thus far, although it is believed JCR will run a multi-car squad.

“I was very impressed with John Cummiskey Racing's results and progress last year,” Agren added. “I am super excited to see what we can do together.”

“Our goal is to win the championship – and taking it one race at a time, I believe we will get there.”
