Michael d’Orlando is considered on of the top drivers in the nation in single-seater competitionmaking his mark on the open wheel car racing scene around North America and his sights set on a career in the NTT IndyCar series. After a nine year career in karting as a multi-time national and international champion, and  ultimately a factory team driver for the world-renowned Birel ART racing team in Europe, he made his move from race karts to race cars in 2018.

The 22-year-old American from Hartsdale, NY competed in four seasons of the USF Pro Championships (formerly knowns as the "Road to Indy"), earning the 2022 USF2000 Championship title.  The scholarship from this success provided him the opportunity to advance up a step in the program to the 2023 USF Pro 2000 series where he finished fourth overall with the most pole positions and four victories.  d'Orlando also is the only driver in the USF Pro Championships program's history to ever earn back-to-back sweeps in the Lucas Oil Freedom 75.  During his four-year tenure as a full-time competitor in the USF Pro Championships, he never finished outside of the top-4 overall in the drivers' championship.

d'Orlando is currently developing B2B and sponsorship opportunities to make the move into the INDY NXT by Firestone series for 2024.   INDY NXT is the final step on the ladder on a career path to the NTT INDYCAR series.
