Charlie Kimball, a driver from Camarillo, will race for Michael Andretti’s team in the Firestone Indy Lights Series starting in 2010.
Kimball, 24, finished his rookie season 10th in the Indy Lights standings in 2009. He had two top-five and eight top-10 finishes in 15 starts.
“I’m very excited to be joining AFS Racing/Andretti Autosport for 2010,” Kimball said. “I learned a lot about the Firestone Indy Lights as a rookie this year and am looking forward to leveraging that experience into a run for the championship in 2010.”
Kimball joins Martin Plowman from Emgland on the AFS Racing/Andretti Autosport team.
Kimball has made one previous start for Andretti Autosport, in the A1GP series under the team USA banner in 2008.
“We’re excited to bring Charlie on board with AFS Racing/Andretti Autosport for 2010,” Andretti said. “He is a great guy and a driver that has a lot of potential. He was a pleasure to work with at Zandvoort back in 2008 and we’re looking forward to watching him develop next season.”
