"We're extremely happy to welcome Adam to the team," said Red Bull Cheever Racing owner, Eddie Cheever Jr.. "He brings extensive media relations experience, which will be invaluable as we move forward during the rest of the season."

Red Bull Cheever Racing drivers Alex Barron and Patrick Carpentier will be back on the track competing for the IndyCar Series championship on April 30 at the Indy Japan 300 in Tokyo, which will air at noon Eastern on ESPN. Carpentier currently is ninth in the point standings and Barron is 10th.
