Ryan Hunter-Reay , #31 American Spirit/Ford-Cosworth/Reynard

Superspeedway Debut: Hunter-Reay will make his oval debut in a Champ Car at the Eurospeedway. While it is the Rookie's first time competing on the oval in a Champ Car, he accrued a lot of valuable experience during his training in the CART Ladder Series. Hunter-Reay was the most successful oval driver in the CART Toyota Atlantic Championship last year; he dominated the field in Milwaukee and picked up his third Atlantic victory at Chicago.

Merchandise: American Spirit Team Johansson team gear and merchandise is now available at The merchandise selection will change frequently.

Representing Grossraschen: Hunter-Reay will represent the city of Grossraschen this weekend at the German 500. The mayor of the town will be an honorary team member.

Hunter-Reay on Eurospeedway: "I have been anticipating this event all season, and to make my oval debut at such a first class facility makes it even better. I like the ovals, I have had a lot of success on them and I think we should run very well here. My experience so far in Germany has been excellent and I hope that will continue this weekend. What a fantastic series we have, last weekend we were racing on one of the most historic road courses in the world; rich with history and tradition. This weekend, here we are in Germany on a 2-mile superspeedway; most likely the world's finest oval facility, this is a great experience."
