Bryan Herta Autosport expands Indy Lights team for Mid-Ohio
Bryan Herta Autosport is expanding for the next two races in the Firestone Indy Lights series.
Felipe Guimaraes is returning to the auto racing team owned by Valencia’s Bryan Herta for this weekend’s race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and the following race at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma.
Guimaraes, a driver from Brazil, will join Daniel Herrington on Herta’s team. Guimaraes made his debut with the team at Watkins Glen in New York and finished on the podium, in third place.
The drivers from Bryan Herta Autosport are working with James Davison, a driver from Vision Racing, in a three-car effort.
Herta said he likes his chances at Mid-Ohio and Sonoma.
"Should gives us a good 1-2-3 punch for the next two races," Herta said via e-mail.
Herrington is coming off a sixth-place finish at Kentucky Speedway.
