2014 Pro Mazda presented by Cooper Tire Championship by the numbers

The 2014 Pro Mazda presented by Cooper Tire season featured a back-and-forth battle between veteran Spencer Pigot and rookie Scott Hargrove.  Pigot won the first four races on the way to scoring the most series wins, and took an early commanding lead.   Hargrove’s consistency and series leading 10 podiums allowed him to  storm back in the middle of the season, making a tight race of it.  A crazy championship deciding event at Sonoma Raceway saw both drivers leading the championship at different points during the weekend.  In the end, it was Hargrove’s second DNF of the season, that cost him a championship.
