INDYana Native Logan Gomez to race with Guthrie Racing in IPS at Indianapolis
Crown Point, IN- Guthrie Racing and the BMS Group are pleased to announce that seventeen year old Indiana native, Logan Gomez, will make his Indianapolis Motor Speedway debut this summer driving in the Indy Pro Series Liberty Challenge race supporting the Formula 1 World Championship. Gomez, who was born and raised in Crown Point, IN, is currently in his first full season of open wheel racing in the Star-Mazda Championship with Velocity Motorsports.
Q- Logan, how did you get involved in racing?
LG- I began karting as a hobby at the age of 9. I soon realized that being a race car driver was something that I wanted to pursue. What was once a hobby has now at the age of 17 turned into a career as I am in my first full season of open wheel racing.
Q- Around the Star-Mazda paddock are you called the INDYana Kid?
LG- Yeah, it is a name that my dad gave me and now, especially since we are going to be racing at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, it has stuck!
Q- How long have you wanted to race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway?
LG- Ever since I was a little kid watching the races each year on television with my family.
Q- You are joining Guthrie racing driving the #4 car in the Indy Pro Series race. Tell us your thoughts on joining the team?
LG- I am very excited to be joining Guthrie Racing for this year's USGP race with the Indy Pro Series. I know the team has what it takes to run a car up front and I feel that having a teammate like Sean Guthrie who has taken the same steps to the Indy Pro Series as I have will enable me to adapt to the IPS car as quickly as possible.
Q- You are currently competing in the Star-Mazda Series. How is the season going?
LG- We have completed four races so far this season, everything from road, street and oval circuits. I feel we have some room for improvement with our qualifying and race setups. This is something that is different with every driver and I am hoping to develop a good baseline in the Star-Mazda Series to bring that data and experience over to help with our race in the Indy Pro Series.
Q- What is your goal for the IPS event?
LG- My number one goal is to win the race, but it is also very important to have a good showing of speed and hopefully to turn some heads in the paddock, especially when they hear how old I am.
