Andretti to FuZion Autosport for 2008 Indy Pro Series Campaign
(Brownsburg, IN) --- Adam Andretti announced today he will contest the 2008 Indy Pro Series Championship with FuZion Autosport.
The Indianapolis based team may be new to the Indy Racing League, but the veteran team owners are ready with their new driver. Adam Andretti is the son of Aldo and brother of NASCAR driver John. He is excited about his new team and the prospect of a full season in the highly competitive Indy Pro Series with the ultimate goal of the IndyCar Series.
"I am very happy to finally be settled in with an Indy Pro Series team." he said.
"FuZion was a no-brainer for me. Even though the team is new the engineers, mechanics and management have been around the series since its inception and the ownership group is made up of true red-blooded racers!
"I recently relocated back to Brownsburg where I was raised and attended high school, so everything feels like the right fit. Most of all it is an honor to drive for a well respected group of owners who have the talent needed for the team to succeed. I can't wait to start testing and get on with the season!"
The ownership group features longtime Indy Pro Series participant Dave McMillan, Terre Haute native and Formula BMW team owner David Hunt, and Northern California businessman Preston Countryman who, after a brief absence from racing is glad to be back.
"I feel very fortunate to be a co-owner of FuZion and associated with both David Hunt and Dave McMillan" he said.
"It's rare to find and put together a group with as much open-wheel racing experience and knowledge. My first love is open-wheel racing so to be a part of the Indy Racing League, with the leadership Mr. George has to guide owners as well as the league, is a dream come true for a businessman with a passion for racing.
"I am personally delighted Adam Andretti is back in a race car where he belongs, and in an open-wheel Indy car where he truly belongs. And, just like in 2001-2002 when I owned a West Coast stockcar team, I am honored Adam Andretti is driving for a team I co-own.
"Given the people we've assembled, we will be competitive in the Indy Pro Series." said the elated Countryman.
The team recently moved into a new race shop in Brownsburg, a few miles west of the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway and an area fast becoming home to many professional racing teams.
The bonus for Andretti is he will be close to family and able to visit the workshop daily to develop a strong relationship with FuZion.
