Langhorne finishes 18th in IRL debut.

Sparta,KY: Will Langhorne finished 18th in his IRL debut driving Treadway-Hubbard Racing's No.55 Grill2Go/Sam Schmidt Motorsports Indy Car in the Belterra Casino Indy 300 from the Kentucky Speedway Sunday. Langhorne lead a total of 9 laps including the half way point in the race and remained on the lead lap until having to pit under green on lap 146 for a blistered right rear tire.

"Our goal for the weekend was to run from green to checkered and we accomplished that goal," said Langhorne. "We just wanted to get some more seat time and race experience with re-starts and pit stops and racing with these guys. It's always hard to come in mid-season and race against teams and drivers that have been together for the entire season or even several years. Overall, I think we did a good job. I have to thank Grill2GO for the opportunity as well as the entire Treadway and Sam Schmidt teams. The team was great to work with. We'll take all we learned this weekend and look to improve our performance in Chicago."

Langhorne will skip the Gateway Indy 250 and return to the car for the Delphi Indy 300 from the Chicagoland Speedway on September 8th.
