Dale Coyne's game of driver musical chairs continues at Detroit

Tristan Vautier and Rodolfo Gonzalez will pilot the team's cars in Belle Isle.

After finishing 28th in the Indianapolis 500, Tristan Vautier will return this weekend to drive for Dale Coyne Racing (DCR) at the Detroit street circuit. He will pilot the No. 19, while Rodolfo Gonzalez will drive the sister No. 18.

Gonzalez is a former Marussia F1 test driver and has one previous start with DCR, finishing 20th in his IndyCar debut at Barber. The team has seen six different racers compete in those two cars this year. Along with these two, James Davison, Carlos Huertas, Conor Daly, and Franceso Dracone have also driven for the operation. Rocky Moran Jr. was also set to drive one of Coyne's machines at Long Beach, but suffered a hand injury during practice and was unable to race.

Pippa Mann was entered as a third car in the 500 and was the highest-placing DCR driver, finishing 22nd.

There's also been an update on the injured pit crew member, who was struck when all three team cars collided on pit road during the 500. Daniel Jang has left the hospital after breaking his right ankle and will continue his recovery from home.
