The 17-year-old, who is brother-in-law to SFHR co-owner Sarah Fisher, has been predominantly racing in midgets, although he completed his Indy Lights rookie test with Fan Force United at Kentucky Speedway last October.

Ed Carpenter Racing team manager Tim Broyles is optimistic that the experience gained during 2012 will help the fledgling squad to build upon its Fontana win in the new IndyCar season. Carpenter left Sarah Fisher Racing to set up his own team at the end of 2011, becoming the only owner-driver in the field, and delivered a surprise victory in last year’s season-finale. Broyles expects the team to benefit from having continuity among its staff and more time to prepare for the season compared to its situation 12 months ago.
